Any idea why my Chrome browser on a PC won't play any Vimeo videos and how do I fix it?

Normal advice is make sure your using the most up-to-date browser and flash/viewer. You're not the only person to report a problem viewing videos.

Is this just on the site or Vimeo in general?

What about youtube?

Can you view these?

Youtube:



Vimeo:


Edit:
The user that reported the problem has now solved it. One of his chrome extension was blocking videos - might this be the same for you?

I can play the top one but not the bottom one. I click on play and it says, "Aw Snap! The video can't be played with your current setup"

Moved to Bugs.

What about a Chrome add-ons/extension blocking the site? You might want to turn these off and retry just to see if that has an effect.

From Chrome help-

Quote:
Temporarily disable extensions

Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
Select Tools.
Select Extensions.
On the Extensions page, unselect the "Enabled" checkbox for the extension you'd like to temporarily remove.
Go back to your list of extensions at any time to re-enable disabled extensions. You may need to refresh the page in order to use extensions that you've re-enabled.

Disabled each extension but the Vimeo still won't play. Thanks for trying!

Found the culprit (for anyone else who might have this problem). Culprit was my K9 internet filter. It blocks by default vimeo.com.

I'm having the same issue. It's infuriating. I've spent almost 2 hours enabling flash, disabling, always allowed, extensions, etc. and nothing has worked.
