Google.com

Had the above url in my AOL's favourite list for quite a while. Google video used to run with no problem but now it won't run the player. It brings up the "rich media blocked" small icon on the screen. Played around with firewall settings and my av but no go.
If I use google.co.uk then no problems. Tried google.com in IE and that will default to .co.uk. Has google changed something or is it just my set up?

It defaults to google.co.uk with the web choice ticked by default. If all works fine then why worry. Given the number of peeps using the service worldwide then this makes sense, all google seem to be doing is directing peeps to a server near them to speed things up.

Thanks for your reply. Could you explain "It defaults to google.co.uk with the web choice ticked by default" to me. Thanks.

under the search box there is a choice for Web search or uk pages, web search is ticked by default.

Not under google.com. That's why I'm asking if google has changed something and it's not my system.

No it's this one click here

See if you can run the player from the video (new) link.

Its the same page here.

Haven't used image shack before so hope the image is large enough! click here Bear in mind that this is on the AOL browser so it is not defaulting to .co.uk I think.

Google.com has worked for me in video. Oddly to get to it and stop it defaulting to co.uk I did a search using Google for Google. That brought up the results in the .com format with the video link at the top. If that makes sense!
