First, open Google Chrome and navigate to the page where you are having trouble viewing the video. Once there, look at the top of the page where the URL bar is. You should see a symbol that looks similar to a padlock.
Next, click on that padlock icon. You should see a drop-down menu that looks like the next image.
Then click on Site settings. This will open up a new tab and bring you to a white page with a blue header. You want to look for Flash, under the permissions subsection, and set the permission to Allow, as shown in the image below.
Once you have done that, close out of that tab and go back to where you are trying to view your videos. Try refreshing the page and see if that works for you.
If it doesn’t, try to clear you cookies and cache. On the same screen, go to the right side of the URL bar. You will see three dots as shown in the image below.
Click on the three dots; a drop-down menu will come up and you will see History. Hover you mouse over History, and another menu will come up. Here you will click on History again. This will open another tab and bring you to your browsing history.
On the left-hand side, you will see text that says Clear browsing data as shown below. Click on this.
This will bring up another window. Please make sure the page looks exactly like the image shown below. Once it does, you can click on the blue button that reads Clear Data.
