That might be issue. Nvidia legacy driver (I have a
[GeForce4 Ti 4200 Go AGP 8x] per lshw. No longer supported by the
current nvidia drivers. CPU: Pentium M 1.4 GHz, RAM: 2GB.
I don't think the latter two are the problem. The nvidia driver might have
been tickled the wrong way by this video/web site. But I've never seen
this behavior before. This computer is capable of displaying 1080i HDTV
files. I have a WUXGA display (1900 X 1200).
In any case, I extracted the video file from the exe file with unzip and
I can watch it just fine locally. Maybe it was a combination of network
congestion, the video driver and the web site quirk.
