Can't figure out why the videos on this site won't play for me. It shows the pic with the play button in the middle but won't play when pushed. It's the same for Chrome and Firefox. It works fine on PB. Can't figure it out. I know basics about computers but not super savvy. Thanks for any help as I'm missing all these vids.

If the site isn't directly hosting the content you will likely run into issues if you run any type of anti-malware stuff.

I'm running XP Pro with Kaspersky Internet Security. Do I add the site to an exception list?

There are issues playing HTML 5 content on XP systems. Internet explorer won't work at all, and you may need some plugins for chrome/firefox etc. to make any videos in HTML 5 work.

Yeah I've noticed a lot of gifs have stopped working for me as I run XP. You can actually take a gif that ends with .gifv and delete the "v" and it will work.
