Half of the IMDB-trailers don't play. I'm getting really fed up with this problem. 
It's not about flash, not about extensions, not about the browser. They don't play in firefox, chrome and in opera. What's the problem, IMDB? 

It is really annoying to click on a trailer and then get redirected to a black page all the time.

Examples:

Amateur Night
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4265508/videoplayer/vi3791369241?ref_=tt_pv_vi_aiv_1

Ace Ventura
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109040/videoplayer/vi146080025?ref_=tt_pv_vi_aiv_1

Braveheart
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112573/videoplayer/vi3399129113?ref_=tt_pv_vi_aiv_1

Fix your website!!

Hello MIchael,
Those 3 all work for me. The sound is out of synch on the trailer for Ace Ventura but they all work. No redirection to a blank page

Thanks for your reply. That's really weird. 3 different browsers and no luck here... Hmm, I'll investigate further.

When I try it with IE it says "Sorry, this video is unsupported on this browser"
They work using Google Chrome & Safari (and, as I said above, Firefox)

Again, thanks for your replies. When I copy and paste the link in a browser I get the notification: Oops, this webpage doesn't exist (with a quote from a famous movie in it)... Really strange

Thanks. I tried both options. I already disabled all plugins and blockers prior to posting this message. I also tried the incognito window, to no avail.

This, for instance. When I go the homepage go to the Braveheart page, I get this after I click on the trailer link:


The "Up Next" videos do play...

Which browser are you using? On which operating system?
If you just click on the links you gave in your original post here, they should start immediately

I'm using Chrome v. 64.0.3282.186 on Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.16299 Build 16299.

If I click the links I get a page not found error.

Michael - are you Mac or PC? I cannot currently replicate your experience.

Thanks!
