Hi, Rick:
I am with you.  I don't see the video, either.  Until, that is, I use a different browser.  My normal browser is Chrome and I cannot see the video windows in Chrome.  When I look at the same message using either IE or Firefox the video shows up fine.  I have no idea what has changed, since they worked fine in Chrome before.  I will send a PM to Ron.

Rick:
Ron found this link which describes how to fix the glitch in Chrome:  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

I followed the instructions and I can now see the media windows in these threads while using Chrome.  Apparently there was an automatic update in Chrome in the last day or so that messed things up.

Take care
Bob

I constantly have this problem with this website when I use my iPad.  No problem when I use my PC.

Alan, it is a problem with PC vs. Apple.  I have the same issue but have gotten to the point that I don't even look at the video section of the forum until I'm either at home or on my laptop at work with NOTHING to do.  Then I enjoy it for a few minutes.
Cool

I have only joined your Forum,I am a complete Novice at wood turning, What got me attracted was Segmented Turnings, I would like to give it a go,so I watch as many videos as possible,to pick up ideas, but I am having a problem, trying to watch your videos, most of the first link ,has no link to the video, maybe it's because I am only a new member? Could you sort this out for me please.     Paul

Hi, Paul:
I moved your post to the "Site Help" forum and put it into a thread from a month or so back where others (including me) were having trouble seeing the videos.  If you check the third posting in the thread there is a solution that worked for me.  If you are not using Chrome as your browser and still can't see the videos you should start a new thread in the "Site Help" forum because I don't have a clue what would be causing it.  You should see an embedded video window in each of the video threads and all you need to do is click "Play".  I will add a copy of this PM to the end of the thread so if you don't notice you have a PM hopefully you will see it there.

Good Luck!
Bob

there is another possible solution...BUT......this is a SERIOUS "use at your own risk" kind of deal....

so long as you have QUALITY anti-virus software running and up to date, you are at little risk......but there IS still a risk.

if, for some unknown reason, you DO NOT have an anti-virus program installed and running, try AVIRA. it's not only free, but it's constantly updated, and is rated better than both norton and mcafee.
