    I like to watch old tv shows streamed. A very good site I have found is www.slashcontrol.com and one show I like to watch is 'Spenser For Hire'. I have used this site for several months and some video's are links to Hulu or others but some are not available elsewhere. Well, Spenser For Hire has stopped playing. The player loads but the show does not. Other shows on this site play normally. As an experiment I downloaded Google Chrome to see if the problem was one of the three browsers I have, Well as soon as Chrome was installed I went to the page to play the show and tried the first one (I had already seen this one) listed and it started playing. So I went to the one I had not seen and now it would not play. I then went to the one that had just worked and now it will not work either. None of them work with Chrome either. What is going on with this site and the show Spenser for Hire? It worked for a second but now it will not work and that makes 4 browsers that will not play this one show. Does anyone have a clue as to why this is happening and any suggestions as to how I can get this show to play?

    Thanks for any help!

    If other shows play normally, I doubt its your machine or browsers. I would contact the site to see if they have any thoughts.

    This site is owned by AOL. Need I say more? I can not find 'any' link that I can use to contact the administrators except to pay for 'Premium" access.

    I did thought find out what may be stopping access. This morning after I booted I found I was able to use Chrome to view any of the episodes but after i started the program "Bit Comet" I found that I could no longer access any. Stopping the program did not help but I just rebooted and without starting any other program found I can stream the show. Strange Huh? Don't know why but Bit Comet seems to be the problem. Idea's?
