YAHOO! News Videos will not play.

When I click on an item containing a video on Yahoo! News home page, it will automatically go to the YAHOO! NEWS page as it should. However when it loads the topics etc., the video screen stays black - it will not play the news story.

Re: YAHOO! News Videos will not play.

Hi sounds like an activex issue with IE. I bet if you download firefox the videos will work. In IE enable your status bar if its not already, then try loading a yahoo video..not check the bottom left of the status bar to see if theres any errors on the page. Double click the error icon and tell me what it says.

Re: YAHOO! News Videos will not play.

It is just because of yahoo limitation. Yahoo video library is limited to certain country depending on its video. Try the vedio which belongs to your country.

How can i get rid of a facebook connection to a tv show?

Go to
Login as usual
at the top of your browser window containing, there will be
Home, Profile and Account
If its an application:
Left click account, choose application settings from the list of given options.
Find the errant Tv application and press the x to remove it.
If its a news feed: (Typically if you have something in your profile, eg you've told facebook in your profile that you like the show Friends and you now get spammed with Friends updates, a little harder but here we go..)

Beside every newsfeed item there is the option to hide it, click Hide to not show items from that particular entity anymore.
If at a later stage you want them back then using the "Edit Options at the bottom of your news feed page will allow you to add them back in"

If you totally want to remove an item like this Tv show then you would goto your profile and edit your interests and likes.
Delete the offending entry to have it never come back, or from your profile page can you drag the item just below where it is listed where it says "Drag here to hide" this will achieve the same effect as the original method, but allows you to edit more items faster.

Hope this helps

"Loading" at top of screen and I want "Yahoo" for home page

to set yahoo as your homepage go into the tools dropdown in internet explorer. Once in tools click on internet options then you can set your homepage to whatever you want. You have to be careful when installing some programs because it will change your homepage automatically. To keep this from happening keep an eye out for any check boxes that say something along the lines of

"would you like to make _____ your homepage"
As for the other problem im sorry but i don't know how to fix it as i am unfamliiar with the program
