I have Flash 9 beta loaded on my machine and it seems to work just fine in all applications except when I try to watch any of the Heroes episodes online at NBC.com the video stops after it plays all of the movie trailers and advertisements. It doesn't seem to have the ability to watch any of the episodes. Watching the episodes works just fine under windows.
1) Do I need to set something up to watch the episodes?
2) Is this a FLASH issue or something totally different?
3) Where do I begin or is there anything I can do?
3) Is anyone else watching the episodes online?
I have had the same problem with flash 9. It wants to lockup on me. I love how flash 9's improved sound but, got sick of having to reload the same video over 10 times to see it. I went back to flash 7 and now I don't have any lockup problem but, the sound is a little screwy. I hate Adobe.
It has been a few month since I tried the flash 9 maybe, I need to give it another shot?
Could it be that I have mplayer as a default for my video viewing? Do I need to adjust some setting. As I have stated.. all of the advertisements and movie trailers play just fine but it stops after the advertisements are finished and won't play the episodes? If I right click on the video I can see a "about Flash 9" link and flash settings menu.
I have the same problem at the NBC site. The flash player will show a commercial and then stop. At the Foxnews site you will only hear audio. Youtube and ABC site play ok. You can go to the adobe site and provide some feedback http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforu...616&entercat=y
Flash 9 is still beta, and hopefully abobe will fix these issues. For the time being if you want to watch NBC videos you can install the windows version firefox using wine.
