    OSX 10.6.8 (all updates)
    Firefox 5.0.1
    Adobe Flash 10.3.183.5 (most current)

    When I go to certain sites like http://backpackit.com/tour the flash videos will not play in Firefox or Safari.

    Any ideas?

    I tried to uninstall Flash and then reinstall as well as Firefox and still some Flash videos will not play.

    Is there a way to see what app is associated with a flash video file? Are those .fmv files?

    It seems to be problem with the site.

    Can you play video from vimeo or youtube?

    The flash videos on that site don't play for me either and I know my flash player is fine.

    Ok, thanks for checking it for me. I'll email the web support and ask them what is up with it then. :)

    Fireshot, thanks for having me test that.

    When I went to the page of the source video I was notified by my web filtering software it was blocked. That was not being shown on the host page. So now it works great!
