    Do other video sites work?  YouTube?  Do you have any ad blockers in place?  Have you tried using another browser to see if it also occurs there?  If you right click on the black area, do you get the Flash Player context menu?

     

    I just gave the site a try using Chrome but videos displayed properly.

    Try disabling that utility to see if it helps.  I've found that some ad blocking software can interfere with video streams from content providers.

    Could you try reseting your hosts file?

    kgm456,

    What version of Flash do you have installed?  What browser and OS are you using?  What sites are you having problems with?  Is it just NBC?

     

    I'd suggest doing a clean install to make sure everything is reset.

     

    How do I do a clean install of Flash Player?

    Thanks so much Chris- the uninstall/re-install solved the problem
