Videos won't play at discovery.com

We are having trouble with videos playing on discovery.com.  We are in a school setting and it is possible that our web filtering is blocking the site where the videos are hosted.  I am the tech cordinator and have unblocked dsc.discovery.com *.dsc.discovery.com *dsc.discovery.com *discoverymedia.com *.discoverymedia.com and the url of the specific site, and none of these steps help.

I did try Chrome and IE.  I will try a few others, along with your suggestion to make sure all extensions are disabled.  In fact that gave me a good idea, I will take the computer we are using home with me and test it out there to see if it works outside the school environment.  I will update when I find out more.

I tested and got the following response, so Flash is not the issue.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Flash Player is pre-installed in Google Chrome and updates automatically!
