Talk about anything!

Forum Embedded Videos Not Displaying <- does exactly what it says on the tin.
I get a black rectangle rather than a video (or at least what I presume is a video)

FF 25.0.1 (latest)
All drivers/flash uptodate

Only happens on IGS forums.
YouTube videos in the Game Store work fine.

something to do with the security certificate i think. it is a secure site (https), but the embedded videos aren't secure so the major browsers block you from seeing them as they are 'unsafe content'. I hope that the site admin or someone does something to make it so we can see them again (maybe change the forums to http?).

Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation.

Actually depends on your browser - you can see them by clicking the shield in the address bar of chrome.

Here is Chrome's explanation and a way to turn it off and as mgnade said, it is browser specific Waterfox views them just fine:

Although not recommended, you can also use the command line flag --allow-running-insecure-content to prevent Chrome from checking for insecure content. Instructions on how to add a command line flag can be found on our Chromium site (English only).

If you’re a web developer, you can see the insecure scripts found on your site by going to the Chrome menu and selecting Tools > Javascript Console. Issues may sometimes stem from poorly-made extensions or insecure CSS/Flash.

Nothing works on FireFox I can tell you that, probably because of my NoScript I think.
Whenever I see a video posted in Game Suggestions I just see a black box with phpBB[video] in it.
