Read this if you can't watch videos

Some of you might be aware of 512K problem happened on 12th August. If not, then search for it on google. Since that day Internet has been unstable for some people. Many have complained that videos on FR no longer load. It happened to us too.

We discovered that our internet connection settings had DNS set to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 which is a well known public DNS provided by Google. After removing those settings, and just leaving the computer to acquire DNS servers automatically, videos started to work once again.

The link bellow described how to change DNS settings on different platforms. In this link they tell you how to change DNS to 8.8.8.8. Instead of doing that, you need to remove that setting if it is set.

Let us know if it helped.

My settings were never set to 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4. Please post a way to start watching videos again if you find a fix. I'm using chrome with all the latest java, flash player, etc. I just want to watch videos.

Same problem here, for me it works when Ad Block is deactivated, the loading is pretty slow, sometimes around 1min before the video starts, but it works...

That didn't help,

I couldn't watch the videos since a month until I found out that the problem was just an anti-adblock protection.

It would have been nice to let us know about this.

@Dynastian

Deactivate Adblock + clear your cache, and retry, or try in anonymous mode ctrl+shift+n, if it doesn't work maybe you have some other plugins or extensions (Avast ?) installed on your browser that block the content...

The only way for me to watch the videos is using the anonymous mode, but it's really annoying if you want to let a comment...
