More often than not, when I open a thread in the Lightwave Finished, Work-In-Progress, or 11 forums, I get the "Sorry there was an error encountered while loading this video" message. I'm running Quicktime 7.7.3 in Firefox 18.0.1 under Windows 7 x64. Is there anything in Firefox I should tweak? Are there any other codecs I should be running?

Have you tried different browsers? e.g. Explorer or Chrome... It's surprising how much they vary. I find Explorer more responsive whereas Firefox is slower yet dependable...

I looked at three posts in the Finished forum with embedded videos. Firefox showed just the error message each time. Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 didn't even show the error message. Chrome 24.0.1312.56 showed and played all three videos.

I thought that by this point all browsers had put on their big-boy pants and were W3C standards compliant. Guess not.

This is the only (?) problem I have with Firefox. Suggestions?

Uhh... if those are links to youtube, then they aren't QT files, but Flash.

Firefox has Add-ons QuickTime 7.7.3 and Shockwave Flash 11.5.502.146, which, according to the Add-ons Manager are up to date.

Is it possible this is some kind of communication timing problem, where some bit/value/setting is received a millisecond or two too late?
