    This is a matter of how the site interprets the device. It can be a matter of what is termed a User Agent - the browser sends info about what the device is. There are now a few alternative browsers that can fudge this value and say "I'm Firefox" or "I'm chrome" etc. But apparently there is also a way that a site can tell which version of Flash is being used and prevent the video from playing.

    You can try contacting the site and telling them they are locking you out with a device that should work on their site.

    thanks for the info. I get some videos from bloomberg so it seems odd it is sporadic. I would be interested to know if others have a problem with this site.

    I get the same message on ESPN. I'm not sure if it is just the videos that start automatically though.
