If I click to play a video that needs to be redirected to another site, I get the message "an error has occurred. Please try again later."

On the other hand, if I'm on, say, YouTube or another site that originates the video, it will play fine.

I can't figure out what the error can be and how to fix it. I'm running OS X 3.6.7 with Firefox 4 (upgraded just yesterday and the "error" was happening before FF4). I have Adblocker, Flip 4 Mac, etc.

Any ideas what's wrong?

The site in question would be???

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Any site that hosts a video from another site (such as BoingBoing does). If a video is native to the site, it plays fine; if it's been hosted, it won't play.

Sorry, I meant OS 10.6.7.

Thanks for looking.
