    Is it possible to download/watch videos without using activeX controls? At one point it was possible, and useful. Now I can't see anything.

    Also I went to add a comment to a video and I could not type in the comment box. It was dead.

    Thanks,
    Frank


    PS: I see a "downloads" link next to videos. Clicking on it does nothing -- but I can see a javascript error on the web page.

    Downloads is what you want.  It is supposed to show the list of downloads when you rollover it, but I guess it's not (for you anyway, seems to work fine for others).  What is the javascript error you're getting?

    "Silverlight.ua.Browser" is null or not an object.

    Looks like the silverlight javascript error then breaks everything.

    To test this, use IE7 without silverlight installed.

    We have a fix checked in for this now and you'll see it in our next deployment (either today or [more than likely] on Monday).  Thanks for finding this for us.
