Viewing the video clips on this website

By C. Farrell

Currently the videos on this website are housed in a number of different places (Photobucket, IPlayerHD, ClipMoon, YouTube).

Readers using certain devices are now finding that the videos housed at ClipMoon and Photobucket will not play on their device.

Desktop or laptop

If you are reading this website on a PC or Mac, you should be OK; but if the ClipMoon or Photobucket videos won't play, you need to make sure you have Adobe Flash Player installed and up to date. Get it here for free:

Exception: If you are using the Google Chrome browser, Adobe Flash is already built-in and should update automatically. For troubleshooting videos in Chrome, go here:

Mobile devices (smartphone or tablet)

Unfortunately Apple have seen fit to make their iOS operating system (as used on the iPad and iPhone) incompatible with Adobe Flash. Users of these (and maybe some other) devices need to instal a mobile browser app that incorporates flash. I have been told that "Puffin" works well. Get it here for free:

There is also a version of Puffin for Android devices (e.g. Samsung), if needed:

General information about Puffin:

For further information, try googling "video won't play on iPad". There are also various tutorials to be found on YouTube (but I cannot vouch for their quality or reliability).


(1) Video clips housed at IPlayerHD or YouTube should work on all platforms and all devices as they are coded in HTML5 and do not require flash.

(2) So why don't I just put all my video clips on IPlayerHD or YouTube?
-- In the case of IPlayerHD it is because I have to pay for the bandwidth, which gets quite expensive.
-- In the case of YouTube it is because a lot of CP videos get deleted and also there are sometimes intrusive adverts.

(3) Very occasionally a video server such as ClipMoon may simply be temporarily down altogether. In this case one just has to wait and try later.

(4) Please let me know if you have followed all the above instructions and still find that a video on won't play. Also if you have technical expertise in this area and think any of this information is wrong.
