Using firefox I've gone to the site http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/5633634268001/?playlist_id=933116635001#sp=show-clips and tried to play any clip, but I get nothing. If I run it in IE it works. What play does this site want? Can it be installed in Firefox?

Flash is forbidden at our office because of its security issues. But in any case, normally if a site uses Flash it says so and offers a download. Any idea why this is different?

Probably depends on the device, but I get Akamai

Shaun Vermaak: So, Akamai can display Flash content? Sounds pretty good. Did you just download it from that site? It's not obvious how to do that, but they have a chat I can ask. What browser are you using? Do you know if it works with Firefox? Again, something I can ask in the chat if you don't know offhand.

Ramin: Yes, I believe you. I just found it rather curious the site didn't offer to download it. In my experience most sites  do, but I suppose that is up to the page developer.

Yes, I believe you.
Thank you for that, but when I checked that video more deeply it's not Flash, it is HTML5, but when you right click on it while playing it shows that menu in my above picture.
