Over the past few weeks I have not been able to get the video to play from the following site
click here_

The "how to" part of the address changes each week.

When I click on the "Click here to view full project video" it appear to start loading then stops. The preview screen changes from a picture to a black square, however, if I click to play the short clips further down the site they will load and play. Has any one any idea why the site is acting like this?

Installed are:- Windows 7 64bit, AVG free, ZoneAlarm. PC is Intel i5 processor, 4GB RAM,

Other video appears to play correctly.

Are you using Firefox with Adblock plus ?
I had to disable it to get the first video to play.
The others are ok.
It's probably streamed from an address that Adblock has on its filter list.
