REPOST -- Course Videos Not Playing?

TO: All CFedS, CFedS Candidates & Trainees
FROM: CFedS Technical Support

Adobe pushed a new FlashPlayer update and unfortunately our courses are going to be impacted. They disabled the ability by default to playback swf files from the local file system.

What does that mean in laymen terms?

When you click on a video in one of our courses, the shell appears but the video doesn’t start – you just see a black screen.

Why is this important and what does it mean for the program?

All of our course Video is FLV, but the player is SWF. So if you try to run a course, you will encounter this issue.

The Solution

Make sure you are using an approved and supported browser (Internet Explorer and Firefox)

  1. Attach your CFedS Hard Drive to the system.
  2. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Flash Player -> Advanced.
  3. Under the Developer Tools section, click on Trusted Location Settings.
  4. Select Add, then Add Folder.
  5. Select the CFedS hard drive from the list that appears, and click Ok.
  6. Click Confirm.
  7. Click Close.
  8. The CFedS videos should now play correctly.
Note: If the CFedS Hard Drive changes drive letters, you may need to repeat this process for the new drive letter.

Contact Tech Support at cfeds@trainingsolutionsplus.com if you are having problems with the above.
