Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

GameTrailers videos won't work in Firefox or Chrome.

Last night it was fine and today - bing - GameTrailers vids won't work. Woe is me.

I tried Internet Explorer, and the vids work fine there - IE is pretty slow, though. I thought it may have something to do with some variety of ad blocking (what with GameTrailers running commercials before their vids), but if that's the case I can't imagine what I can do about it, since I've never touched any variety of ad-blocking software and didn't do anything with my FireFox settings since last night.

I installed Google's Chrome browser and gave it a shot - same deal. YouTube works fine in Firefox, and the GameTrailers videos I've embedded on my blog also run without an issue, but when I try to watch a video in HD at GameTrailers.com, the video part of the page just stays black, and eventually in my status bar at the bottom of the browser it simply says "Done".

What do I do? Just totally reinstall Firefox and see if that helps? How do you uninstall the thing? I can't seem to find an option for that.


Thanks so much for any help.

TL: DR: Firefox will run YouTube videos and embedded standard-def GameTrailers, but it can't run any GameTrailers videos when I'm actually visiting GameTrailers.com. What gives?
