Does the site tell you to load Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, Java, or anything? Sounds like you are missing one of those components.

Most likely a flash issue. Mine is up to date and it plays ok. Might be worth trying to download and install the latest flash from adobe.com.

I updated but still no luck. What I get is spinning white "gear" that will go forever until I press the play symbol. Then I get a 15 sec commercial. Then back to the pic w/o a "play button."
