Every posted video on the site is currently "unavailable" to me when I click them and they won't play. Are they playing for you?



EDIT:

When using "Google" browser, the videos would not play. 

I then tried Firefox, and all the videos played

That's never happened to me as far as Google and posted videos on this site. Oh, well. I'll go to Firefox, I guess, when I need to watch and / or post videos -- heck, that's all I do, though, on answerMug -- post videos! Ha!

    Try clearing your cache (ctrl + F4).  I had the same problem, but once I cleared my cache everything was ok.

    Thanks for helping, Shuhak. :)

    How, exactly, do you clear the cache? Holding down both of those buttons at the same time? Or one, then the other? or some other way?
    I tried a variety of ways but the videos are still not playing.

    Yes, both at the same time (ctrl + F4).

    Yeah, that was one of the I did it that way a couple of times last night but it didn't seem help the videos. But maybe I had done something else unknowingly somehow and, then, after having shut the computer down overnight, maybe things got set back to the usual setting or something.

    (You can tell I'm not computer savvy at all, my not knowing for sure how to interpret the  "+" sign  in your original answer, ha!)

    For whatever reason, at this point today, all the videos are playing and I successfully posted one, too. :)
    Thanks, again!

      You’d best not look out of your windows right now: the street is full of black SUVs with heavily tinted windows and no license plates front or back, and there are black helicopters circling overhead . . .

    Maybe not quite that far in this case -- but, yeah - - my mind, at times, can very quickly and creatively jump to illogical places. Ha!  :)

    It all worked out - - videos are playing again and I even successfully posted one. :)

    Hey - - maybe those four paratroopers can stop on in anyway? I'm sure I'd find them hot.

    Ha!
    :)
    And - - dam*, yup -- right after posting what I did about the paratroopers - - I, too, thought the same thing  - - they very well could be female! Ha!

    No but the video you posted the other day (R.E.M.) wouldn't let me play it on the site and gave me the same error. I had to go to YouTube to watch it. It's the only one doing that for me.

    Yeah, that one doesn't play for me, either. :)

    Today, all the videos on answerMug are playing as usual. I don't know what I might have done yesterday but after having the computer off overnight, this morning, ll worked again.
