    The embedded video clips on the BBC Sport site no longer work for me since I upgraded to 2.3 and Flash 10.3. I tried going back to Flash 10.1 but this still makes no difference.

    The video clips on the BBC News site all still work.

    Any ideas??

    Is it the live feeds or clips embedded in articles?

    I've always had issue with the live feeds, but embedded clips and iPlayer work fine.

    Have you tried switching off mobile view in the browser settings?

    It's the clips that are embedded into the articles.

    Before I did the upgrades, live feeds, embedded clips and iPlayer all worked fine. Now for some reason, any live feeds and embedded clips within the Sport section are just blank.

    I tried switching off mobile view but that had no impact.

    I have the same issue on my desire s. The BBC news flash clips work but the bbc sport website clips dont. The page just loads with a blank space where the video should be and when I try clicking on it, it just gives the outline of the video. I haven't come across any issues with the flash content on other web pages so bbc must be doing something.

    I have to view the bbc website using comparability view on IE9 to get the clips to work on my PC. Maybe BBC need to upgrade their website to support new formats?

    Had a bash at that, no joy. Interestingly though I get the clip to appear as a picture now as opposed to nothing at all. It tells me underneath the picture that I need to update my flash player but when I follow the link to Adobe, it tells me there that I don't have a supported platform!!

    hiii all,

    It happened some time.
    There can be two reasons.

    1. Virus problem in your operating system

    2. It can be due to not properly uninstallation of older version.Just removing older version restart operating system and then after installwtion.The process remove a lot of error these kind you mentioned.

    Hi, I am having the exact same problem viewing the BBC sports videos. The iPlayer works, and the videos in the BBC News section work ok - it's just the sports videos. Given that the iPlayer and News videos work, it can't be a flash problem, so must be something that the BBC is doing? All videos seem to work ok on my PC. I've tried various browsers on Android, but they're all the same. Grrrrr! If anyone finds a solution, please post it!

    Hi folks,

    I have the same problem with the BBC videos - none of them work, news or sports. the embedded ones do, but the videos dont.

    Before the upgrade it was the other way around.

    Are any of you on vodaphone? (i dont think it matters if your not)

    I've got a thread on their forum, & they say if three people report the problem they will investigate it.

    Please check it out, & tell them about the problem & they may try to get it fixed

    I have found out how to make these play!
    On the website address, substitute 'cdnedge' for 'news', so


    Content delivery network edge servers apparently!

    Well I never knew that and I work in a server environment!
