    As of this week I am unable to watch video at nbc.com. I am able to watch nbc programs on hulu - wouldn't they be the same file type? cbs, comedycentral and youtube all work fine. I noticed that one of the videos was shockwave so I downloaded a new version but that didn't correct the problem. nbc's site doesn't address this or offer help to users so I'm hoping someone can advise me.
    I use Firefox, and may have downloaded some updates, but not a new version.
    I had a little trouble with Bitdefender last week , but it isn't interfering with any other streaming video sources so I don't suspect it's the problem. (but what do I know?)
    Thanks, V

    I just went to NBC.com on Internet Exploror and their videos worked fine. Maybe you can try IE? Also, IF you do NOT live in America, some websites restrict access from outside America. I know MTV Overdrive does that.

    Thanks NYCMoonstar. I'd use IE if I really needed my Conan O'Brien fix, but my main concern is getting my system back to where it was before this week (when I was watching Conan regularly on my pc). It's about solving the puzzle. I'm right here in the USA btw, so it's not that.
    Far as I can tell, I'm the only one out here with this problem, so I assume the glitch resides here in my system. I just don't know where to start looking.
    Any suggestions out there? Thanks, V
