So you are saying that even with all those settings applied you cannot play any videos on vimeo? Can you play the youtube videos? It would help to see what exactly you are facing via a screenshot. Can you post one? Do you see the active-x area (the space where the "player" occupies the space for playing the video)? If yes, what happens when you click (or right-click) there? Post 3-4 screenshots of the whole process in 1024/768. Just upload the pics to imageshack.us and give us the links. No need to "embed" the pics here.
Also try deleting all private data from opera's Tools->Delete Private Data. Click on the "Details" menu and check all except passwords. And which security apps are you using (list ALL)? Is there any antispyware/registry-locker etc installed? Are you using any proxy server? Check what's running on port 80. Also try refreshing some of your internet info from command prompt by these commands:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
And try opendns instead of your ISP's DNS
The IPs are: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220
Lastly, do try a live CD of ubuntu :) Also try a proxy.

Gordon I'd be interested in a test where for a few reviews, you just post a preview, like 1-2minutes on youtube and to see the rest you have to go to Cameralabs.com and the review, and the video from vimeo would show up with the review. This gives you the crowd of youtube and the people come here.

Seems like a good way of getting more traffic to Camera Labs... Good idea Jake!

Hello Roy,
:lol: I just came home from work, and saw your post, wow,,,, :lol: first of all, I am downloading Ubuntu right now. Downloading speed sucks at the moment but any how i'll finish the download in about 3 hrs (That really sucks :evil: ) now:

I have no problem in playing and downloading Youtube's videos.
Yes I do see the Active X area and when i right click on it, it just show "Movie not loaded".

I have refreshed all the internet info as you told me.

There is no anti spyware, just Nod32 Antivirus.

No, I am not using Proxy server.

And here are the links to the screenshots you asked for :)

And Roy, Thanks a million for your effort. I am speechless :oops:
Btw, i also tried deleting all the private data in opera. Still no luck :cry:
Have a very nice day.
Cheers.

Well thats not opera. Firefox may cause problems because of addons like adblock/flashblock/noscript etc, or safe mode... etc etc. Opera SHOULD be able to play this. I have no problems with either ff or opera.

Are you on a 64-bit pc? If yes, then have you installed the 64-bit version of the flash plugin from Adobe?

May be the movie IS indeed loading - it's taking time because of slow or incorrectly configured internet connection. Download and install Bitmeter. It will give you a realtime visual feedback of all download/upload. First single-click to activate the flash block in opera, then click the play button. Check if download activity reflected on bitmeter.

You may wish to try a proxy as well:

Hello Roy,
Well, i don't know what the hell happened in between as i went to sleep while downloading Ubunto. And when i woke up, i saw your post and tried the above link. It worked smoothly. :lol:
Sorry for not uploading the Opera's image. Though it was having the same issues as Firefox. And, i don't know how and why, but while i was asleep, Firefox downloaded an update and after restarting it, I am now able to play the video without any problem.
Funny thing is that now it's working on Opera too. Maybe its got something to do with all that refresh in Command prompt, you made me do earlier. :D
I have downloaded Ubuntu. Should i install it now? Last but not least, Roy, Thank you very much for all the time you spend helping me out. It's like you really carried me on your shoulder with this one :oops: I truly appreciate it.
My kindest regards,
God Bless You :)

I'm glad it's working for you. I find the truth/fact-finding stuff addictive. ;)

I gotta say Gordon,

very very fine work. I really thought you asked some good and very informed question of Chase.

You also have my appreciation for not getting caught up in tech-talk about equipment too much and for keeping what gear-talk there was, focused on what he use it for, such we get a feel for why he made his choices the way he did.

There was a wealth of information about "the business" of being a pro photographer and the mechanics of the logistics and the "life".

Very impressive - thank you!

Cheers :-)

Wow! That's a lot of complement to digest in 1 day :)

To be honest though, animals benefit more out of my curiosity/addiction etc. Cats in particular. There are about 30 cats with me now. 3 died during the last one month. It seems there is a dangerous virus in the compound. Cats/humans/cloth/premises etc all may be carriers, and the hardy virus, immune to household disinfectants, can remain for more than 1 year. Vaccinations are costly, and not readily available. But I think I have no other way but to give them all these vaccines. It's a very very happy day for me today, because today I managed to bring back a 2 month old kitten from sure death. Looks like the corn oil/egg yolk/vitamin etc that I had been giving it since its birth has boosted it's immunity. This disease (Feline Panleukopenia or distemper) which has NO treatment (only supportive) has been giving me and my cats a very hard time.
