VIdeo stops playing when a commercial loads

VIdeo stops playing when a commercial loads

I was watching Style to Rock, episode 2. A little way into the video a commercial tried to play, which instantly locked up the video. I have tried to reload, reinstall flash player, and restart with no effect. I can't tell what video it is because it just freezes up on the first screen (white background, purple logo/icon).

Hi msmit-

I tried playing Styled to Rock (I'd never watched it before, I fear I could become sucked into that one if I let myself!).  All the ads played for me, but I did see a white/purple ad -- was this the one you saw?


Also, which browser were you using? can you try another one?  I was using Firefox 25.0.1 on my mac.

Thanks for getting back to me Jessica. The show is definitely addicting! I just tried to watch the video in Firefox on my Mac and it's still stoping at the first ad - the same one you attached to your post. Any other ideas?

OK, now the same problem is happening with Styled to Rock Episode 4. Same commercial and again at the same commercial break. I wasn't able to correct the issue with episode 2 - instead i watched it on TV. 


What can I do to keep this from happening again?
