4od plays ads only
Is anyone else having problems with 4od only playing the adverts then it just sits there with a blank screen without any error messages. Very helpful
then when the user goes to the 4od website again the play button on the videos is missing.
Flash java and shockwave fully up to date.
The machine have just been reimaged also.
checked internet filtering
its just weird that the adverts play but the content does not.
we are using the YHGFL grid
any ideas would be great

I have the same problem and would be grateful for a fix.

We're on YHGFL and it works fine here, I think ad video's run from a different address though, we have an issue with IMDB trailers where the advert plays but the screen just goes black after that...
Have you asked for it unblocking?

We have the same problem here - on LGFL.

i will ask a couple of other schools in our area to see if they have the same problem

They are still working on the problem and I'll have an update after a meeting on Friday. 4oD have to change how they do some stuff ... but it looks to be a considerable change for them and I can understand they don't want to rush it and make all materials open all over the world!

Sheesh ... we didn't finish the meeting until late (and spending time having a life ... or at least playing WoW anyway).
Yes, 4oD have done some work but it is still not complete ... and seems to have dried up a bit, however it is being chased up on Tuesday. It is a geo-taggin issue ... and adverts and content are pulled from two different systems so that is why we have a problem (as do a few other areas which have proxies set up in a similar fashion).
5player is now just requiring some whitelisting.

Can other SWGfL people confirm that they have the same problem and it isn't just me?

I looks like a wider problem that i first thought.
I hope it gets sorted soon.
