When I try to start up a video at the arachim Hebrew site, I get the following error even though I installed the latest Java.

Try to run it in the IE
JavaScript is not exactly the same in Firfox and IE - even though there are
errors in JavScript - still this link

plays in my IE (I have old one IE 6.0)
and does not play in my Firefox.
Try in IE.

Try to go to Internet Options - Advanced - and there  are two options Disable Script Debugging (IE), Enable Script debugging (other)
(you probably have it different - I have IE 6).
Toggle them, close IE and then restart it and see if it changes behavoior.
In my case when I disable debugging - it works, when I enable - it stops and writes similar error.
They still have problems in theiir Java Script, but you may  try

I tried the options and it didn't change. I am thinking of installing the latest version of Windows media player since the JS errors appear in FF, IE and Chrome.

That may be an option and maybe it does not play because of Winodws media player, and not because
of the JavaScript error, and JavaScript error is on top of that but it
is not fatal. I have Windows Media Player 11

It started working by itself. The website probably corrected the failing Javascript

Great!
Yes, they corrected the JavaScript error - even when it played for me before
it showed javascript issue at the bottom of the window - no longer now.
