    Hi all. WWE.com has a weekly video feature called "The ECW X-Stream" that plays the tuesday night show in its entirety (http://www.wwe.com/content/media/video/webshows/5673302/ecw75_). I've been completely unable to get video to work on anything I've tried outside of Windows (Safari and the Gecko-based Songbird on my MacBook; Firefox, Konqueror, and Opera on Ubuntu Linux). This puzzles me, as WWE's extensive use of Mac computers has been well-documented. For the most part, everything else on this website (including other videos) has worked completely fine. Is there anything I can do on my part to make this content more compatible? Thanks in advanced!

    I just clicked on your link and got the video. Do you have this installed? http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx

    Yes, I have Flip 4 Mac. I think I should've pointed out that the initial logo and advertising work fine in all scenarios. Problems begin at the show's intro and everything afterward.

    D'oh, guess I should have watched past the initial advertisement. :p

    Not sure what the problem is then. Have you gotten this particular week's episode to work in Windows? Might be an issue on their side.

    Yea, I was successful in playing it on Windows with Firefox. I've only tried this week's show on my MacBook, but I know I've tried to play at least two shows on Linux with no success.
