Greetings;
What good is it to any user of this web site to only see "Error 224003" when trying to play any of the previews/trailers from any movie?
Exactly WHAT the hell does That tell anyone, other than the site is unable to play the video--but it IS able to play bloody ADS for movies no one is interested in seeing?
Get it together, IMDb.

Are sure it is impacting "any user"? Have you tried with a different browser?
(I cannot check it for my self at the moment)

Hi SM,

Can you please provide more information so our team can further investigate this error? Do you have the video you were attempting to watch when this occurred? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Taylor!
Years ago, I saw a promo for the movie, (from 1973) called "The Last Detail" with Jack Nicholson.
I googled it and landed at the IMDb site--and saw the trailer.
I clicked on the trailer and got the "Error 224003" message.
You guys might note that a message like "Error 224003" does not tell users anything other than there is some kind of error. Since I never have playback errors anywhere else, I remembered that I have had trouble playing videos on your site in the past.
In the past, on another computer, I used Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and today on another computer I was using Google Chrome.
So I figured it was not my computers.
The link to the page is:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070290/

Thank you very much for your response.
Best to You.

Hi SM,

Can you please confirm if you are still receiving the error upon video playback? If so, please try to use a different browser to test the video and please confirm what browser and version you are using.
