  1. Videos suddenly won't play

    On January 12, 2017, all video content suddenly refused to play on Yahoo View. Just a black screen with an endlessly spinning "loading" arrow circle. I also noticed that the Flash player plugin symbol no longer appears next to the "show site information" and "verified by" symbols to the left of the address bar. I have updated everything and restarted everything and cleared all caches. Still won't play. Please fix this or tell us what is happening.

    • Why do I have to page through 4 pages of the same TV show?

      Why don't you just have the most recent episode, then I can find what I want

      • Turn linux desktop user-agent back on. 2-24-17

        I have done a lot of research for this problem and have also told Hulu to put the heat on or shut "view" down. I know that my linux install works with flash. The problem is on your end. I experimented with both chrome 56 and firefox 51, both are 64 bit. Both have widevine. If I visit hulu directly the drm widget appears in FF on the home page, but it does not appear here like it did a couple weeks ago. I installed an addon user agent switcher for each of them. When I use a desktop agent…

          • Allow me to adjust the closed caption size again

            Actually, it's not a new feature. It's requesting the return of one you removed.

            I used to be able to adjust the closed captions size. The default is *much* too small. But the size control has been removed since 1/12/17.

            The captions are pointless if I can't read them from my seat. I don't understand why you took that capability away.

              • A Queue!

                February 22 - The Watchlist now says Recently Watched and no longer indicates when a new episode is available. Please bring that back. Actually, I LOVED the old queue Hulu used to have - it would be awesome to see that come back around. Also, please let me adjust the closed captioning - that feature seems to have disappeared. But THANK YOU for keeping the content free - I know a lot of us appreciate that.

                  Yahoo view feature does not work on Xbox One. The screen freezes and is black. Refuse to play the videos. You guys need to coordinate with Xbox and get your flash player Incompatibility update taking care of.

                      • make it just work because as of 2-18-17 Yahoo View just stopped

                        All was working just fine. I as very put off when I was forced to update my firefox to ver 51 for linux with flash version 24. It took me quite a while to realize that adobe flash, hulu, and now a widevine plugin. were playing **** off the user. It wasn't broken so it didn't need to be fixed. Well I did get the drive by install of widevine once I bent over far enough to be technologically shafted. Hulu and abobe are burning bridges. It is almost easier and better to cut out the middle man and watch…

                                        • Thank you for adding Resume, now can you remove the shows I don't actually watch

                                          Now we have the Resume Episode section Which I thank you all very much for adding.

                                          What I've noticed is that there are shows on there I have no interest in. I suspect they are the shows that View has attempted to autoload. These are of no interest to me and only clog up the nice new Resume feature you have added.

                                          Please consider limiting the Resume feature to shows we actually choose.
