Some Flash video/audio sites not working, Mac - Tiger

May 29, 2008 4:34 PM

Hey there

I'm having an issue where certain flash sites don't work properly on my mac, they just sit there loading and never actually do anything.

The vast majority of sites work just fine, youtube, google video, gamevideos.com, the escapist, etc..

But some sites such as veoh.com simply will not play the videos.

In addition to that, www.pandora.com will not work either, but there I at least get an error message stating that "flash local storage is not turned on". In this case I've tried to load the flash manager and turn it on, but after changing it and going back in, it seems that my changes were not saved and my local storage is stuck at 10k max.

The exact same sites work fine on my friends PC using my wireless connection.

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall flash with no success.

I've tried both firefox and safari, neither work, but the flash stuff seems to be global on the machine, so I suspect it's more of a problem with the flash than with a specific browser.

I've even tried to run firefox as root, install flash as root, etc thinking that it was something to do with not having permission to write to wherever flash was trying to store stuff.

I've got Firefox 2.0.0.14, OSX 10.4.11, and Flash 9.0.124.0 installed.

I suppose I'm most concerned about pandora.com, but I think the video issues may be related to the "local storage" error I'm getting aswell.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.
