I'm on a Mac and I haven't noticed anything strange on any off the sites I manage.

I'm using a DW flash player, JW FLV and manage two clients who run a privately created player and another one that runs JW FLV and I haven't seen any issues across IE 6, Mac safari or firefox (only browsers i have access to).

It appears to have been something about the Adobe Flash upgrade to Wimpy WASP. I've converted all the videos to use the JW FLV player and now all videos are working correctly.
The JW FLV player is great... simple, it just works, and if you need to tweak it, you can open the code with a text editor,change some of the vars and be on your way.

Just wanted to chime in here as a proud WASP user. I was affected with this problem as well. I contacted support and had the fix in place within minutes. No problems here.

I suspect it's a much wider problem, (having to do with the Adobe update to Flash 10.x), and since we're paid registered users of WASP, it would have been nice to get an email from them warning us before customers started complaining that they couldn't load the videos.
I like the JW FLV player better.. the default settings work fine for our needs, and I find their default skin and controls cleaner looking.

I am curious as to how long it takes to get a response from Wimpy Support regarding this issue. I have had the same issue across several sites, and am eager to get the fix in place. Does anyone have more information on the fix that needs to be applied? Thanks so much.

Another vote for JW Player. We were using some free player (the name escapes me ATM) and started having problems with loading the starter images. Switched to a paid license (low $$) for JW player, installed it on the site, and it's all good.

Yes, the JW support team seems totally on the ball. I'm surely going to switch, but in the short term, I'd prefer being able to get Wimpy up and running again, then switch everything over.

Have you requested support? The only way I know to contact them is via the support form at:

Yes, multiple submissions over the last few weeks via their support form have gone unanswered, and most of what I've found online indicates that no one having this issue has received any kind of assistance from Wimpy. I could understand if Wimpy was a free product, but it's not and no support, or even an acknoledgment of the issue has been made. I have paid for several versions over the last few years and would supspect they want to support their product and regular customers, rather than have customers lose faith in their product.

madk, would you care to share the fix with the rest of us?

just joined to reply. Having this problem and reports with my wimpy rave. Doing a websearch ive seen other complaints that wimpy does not have active customer support. Wish madk would least give us some extra details please. Meanwhile going to check out JW. I have a older version of Wimpy and they want you to buy a new license update to the latest version and that could likely be why some of us may be having this issue too.
