Is anyone else having this problem?

There are a couple of videos (I guess they are ads?) that are freezing the page and taking a LONG time to load.  I have a pretty up-to-date computer, and I have a DSL internet connection so I can not imagine what it is like with a slower computer or connection.

The two videos that seem to be causing the most troubles for me is:
"How to type Marilyn Monroe with Word" by Martin
and
"How to Make a Realistic Knife Throw Effect Video"

They are located in the upper right corner of the page.

 Undecided  Cry  Sad

Note: Some videos load fine, and I seem to find these a lot on the bookmarks page.


Update added by sweets4ever:
Update! Smiley

5min.com has identified and solved the hiccup with the videos/buffering.  No one should be experiencing issues at this time -- yay!

Please reply here if you do experience further issues.

Thanks again for all of your help! Smiley

Hi there!  Those are Flash videos.  Do you have your browser and Flash fully up-to-date?

Could you let me know which browser you use and the current version you have running, please?

my flash is up-to-date, 9.0.124.0 (that's up-to-date, right?)

and my browser is AT&T Yahoo Browser product version 5.04.02.409, internet explorer 6.0.2900.5512

like I said, it is not all the videos, it seems to be focused on those two (so far)

Sad I've got an ad problem Sad

I didn't notice these ads on my work system, but I don't have Flash installed on that machine and it's windows XP. On my home machine, I have Flash CS3 installed on my system, I'm running Vista 32 in the latest version of Firefox.

ALL of these ads:



Cause this pop up to display:


the ads need to be re-exported from Flash to .swf format with the debugger turned OFF.

Hey, animegirlie!  I changed this thread to be all about issues with the new flash ads (it's easier for us to track).  I'll look into this for ya!

I think it just needed to update in the system (the split/merge, that is).

I've just been noticing problems altogether since the merge into making this site "faster". I've noticed the complete opposite, I have to reload pages several times because they say Done but it's just the yellow background. Nothing loads, and if things do load they are really slow. I also have everything up to date on my end and I'm on a wireless connection but I don't think my internet has anything to do with it because other pages/websites load in a matter of 1-2 seconds including those with flash. I wish the old Craftster were back. I'm not digging this new thing at all.
