    Plug In Required?

    Recently, I have been seeing a lot of posts that have pictures/videos, but I have a grey photo stating "plug in required". A lot of posts do not have that as well. I have the standard array of shockwave type viewers. I have no problems with youtube or many other sites. Any recommendations for what kind of video app I should install to get around this issue?

    It's just a standard flash embed, so if you're seeing the gray box you probably have your browser set to ask you on certain sites.

    There have been security issues with Shockwave. The browser will recognize that you don't have the latest and greatest and deny the player from running. Happened to me because I was manually controlling my updates. Upgrade Shockwave to the latest and make sure it's set to auto-update when a new version comes out.
