    video playback on imdb movie gallery doesnt work


    anyone here view video trailers on imdb?

    well I went to check out a few trailers on imdb today, clicked on videos link on this page(page used as example): Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) - IMDb

    which took me here: Videos and Trailers: Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

    then clicked the most recent video.

    black box. no video playback. so I figured ok, video unavailable, clicked another, same result, then I clicked on the ironman 3 entry, repeated. same result.

    I did this with 10 movies.

    I now thought I might have a flash issue..

    nope, sims social on facebook works with no issues, videos on youtube work with no issues, everywhere I've gone that uses flash works, except for the videos on imdb.

    but.. wait, not all videos are unresponsive.

    click any of the featured videos on this page Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) - IMDb and they pop up a player window, one of those ones where if you click anywhere else but on the window it causes them to disappear, now those do play.

    any ideas?

    Yes, but this is not a Win8 issue I don't think, that is a Beta Site,, more than likely it is IMDB.
