Lately I cant watch any video tutorials on asp.net website.. I remember it used to work back in the old site.
To be specific - I enter a page, silverlight loads but the video itself doesnt seem to load (length is 0:00). When i press play the silverlight box turns white and nothing happens.
I tried this from a few different computers and non worked.
Thanks for your help..

I've tried several on this page
http://www.asp.net/web-pages/videos and they are buffering up for me - so im able to play them.
Beneath the videos are several download links. Are you able to download the videos using any of those links?

thanks for your reply.
The download links work..
The weird thing is that i can play videos on silverlight.net.

which version of Windows and especially which browser are you using for this? Did you already try with an alternative browser as well? Also, try hitting ctrl + F5 to completely refresh things on that page.

Windows 7, Chrome Browser.
I should say that right now its working in IE8, but about a week ago it didnt. I have another computer at home thats running Win7 and IE8 and cant play the videos.
I tried deleting every history\cookie\cache\etc possible from chrome... but it doesnt seem to work.

Please give us a specific video URL which is not working for you, so that we can look into this further.

none of them is working..
for example: http://www.asp.net/web-forms/videos/data-access/adonet-data-services/data-access-layers-in-aspnet-applications

This video is playing correctly for me on Windows 7 in the current version of Chrome (16.0.912.63), Firefox, and IE9. My guess is that the video file is being blocked on its way to you. If you look at Fiddler (http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/)
when the video won't play for you, are you receiving all site assets?

I'm not sure how to use fiddler (and if there's a mark for receiving all site assets), but i did used wireshark.
When using IE i can see the following GET:
HTTP GET /download/0/3/e/03e0f41a-9ca8-4924-8512-2cd2c84d1fe6/WinVideo-DAT-001-DataAccessLayer.wmv HTTP/1.1
But when sniffing chrome i cant find such request.
Looking into the tcp streams before that GET (on IE) i couldnt find a reference to the url.. so i'm guessing that its encoded\decoded by silverlight.
Don't really know what to do next... \:

This continues to be the only report I have seen of this problem, so it definitely seems specific to your environment. Can you try disabling all of your browser plugins?
Jan 07, 2012 08:00 AM|salofer90|LINK
Tried it.. didnt work.
Did i mention that it doesnt even work in the visual web developer 2010 internal browser?

Are you browsing from behind a firewall? It sounds like your company may be blocking download.microsoft.com.
Jan 09, 2012 01:43 PM|salofer90|LINK
there is no firewall.. its a home network.
And i mentioned earlier that playing with IE worked a few days ago, but now its back to not working..
