Since v38 has forced HTML5, I can not watch a single video now. I have had this problem for a while and cant find the culprit.
Only way I can watch a vid is via Flash. Furthermore, if someone were to embed a video from Youtube into a webpage in neowin, I would not be able to watch the vid, I would have to go to YouTube to watch that video... via the default flash player... but now, that isnt an option.
When I click on a video, I get the white-ish grey circles rotating, but it never stops, and the video never starts. If I hover over the placemarker to advance somewhere in the video, I see the little thumbnail over the placemarker, but when I click Start - nothing happens.
I have disabled addons to see if that was causing it - no change.
