When I try to view a video on BGG, such as

http://boardgamegeek.com/video/11054/eclipse/drakkenstrikes-...

the page will display but the video doesn't load. I get a placeholder for the video but no way to play it. I'm using IE 9. Does anybody have any idea how I might have messed up my browser?

I guess it could be some kind of security setting on IE9 that disallows flash embeds? I don't have IE9 installed yet - so I can't verify. Anyone else have this trouble?

I just tried firefox and it worked after telling me to update my adobe flash player. IE 9 still doesn't work.

I don't remember when it started for me but IE9 and flash embedded videos don't work and it's not only on BGG, other websites as well.
