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 may find that the videos housed at ClipMoon and Photobucket will not play on their device.

Desktop or laptop

UPDATE: First make sure the URL in your browser's address bar begins with http:// and not https://. Just delete the letter 's' if you see it there, and then reload the page.

If you are reading this website on a PC or Mac, you should be OK. You may have to wait several seconds for the video to appear. If the ClipMoon or Photobucket videos still won't play, 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 theoretically already built in and should update automatically. For troubleshooting videos in Chrome, go here:

UPDATE -- 7 MAY 2017: It has become evident that, in practice, despite what Google claims, the built-in Flash player in Chrome doesn't necessarily work. Simply reinstalling Chrome can sometimes solve the problem. If you still just get a blank space where the video should be, go to and select your operating system in "Step 1" (e.g. Windows 7) and then in "Step 2" choose "FP 25 for Opera and Chromium - PPAPI". Then hit "Download now". Once Adobe Flash has installed, close Chrome and then restart it.

Note: The free Firefox or Internet Explorer browsers both work more reliably for these videos than Chrome. If you are having problems with Chrome and do not want all the above-mentioned hassle, I recommend simply switching to Firefox.

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 arbitrarily 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 incorrect or inadequate.
