    I noticed that Google Chrome is having issues showing the videos in this posting.

    Internet Explorer is fully able to display the videos.

    So far, I have not been able to trouble shoot, like by disabling Flash Player acceleration as some internet postings suggest.

    You may wish to try Internet Explorer if having the same issues, or perhaps can comment with other viewing solutions.
