I've been sent a video message and to watch it i have to click on the link and copy the code, but once i've done this i can't view my video. I just have a black box with a loading circle and the video will not load though i have left it for ages. Any ideas of how i'll be able to watch this video? Thanks

Have you inserted the received link into IE? Is Internet Explorer set as your default browser?
