Martin is a pretty funny speaker, and has some important things to say. Especially about the upgrade matrix, and change control. I am off to make one right now.
What must be enabled for the video to be viewed in Firefox on a Linux box?
The video runs within a Flash player.
Okay; but, sadly, it’s not loading in Firefox on my Linux box, in spite of my having a Flash plugin (flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-0.2.el5.rf) installed. And it’s unlikely that this problem is unique to my system, so it might be good to determine and convey what needs to be enabled.
The RSS feed for the site includes links to MP4 files of the videos. Perhaps you can find something that plays those (VLC?).
It’s not the plug-in that’s the problem. I’m pretty sure that one or more of the URLs is stopped by ad-filtering software. I could pore-over the HTML to identify every URL used, and see which were in conflict; but the easier thing to do would be just to temporarily disable the ad-block software, or to punt to a browser that didn’t have it.
