Playbook just stopped playing embedded videos


I have a problem playing embedded videos on certain siteon on BB PlayBook. I have the latest Os but the problem was before updating. I use to play videos on a website: Vplay / Videoclipuri HD Online on my PlayBook, but for a few days it doesn't work, and the video is not shown on the webpage. I tried everything from this post Playbook just stopped playing embedded videos. but I can't still play any videos. Please try yourselves the website and tell me if it works and what should I do. For registered users (it is free to register) it also has a HTML5 video player, but still the same player. I disabled and re-enabled Java, Pictures and Flash but still nothing! I cleared the cache and so on, no changes. The interesting part is that youtube.com is still working.
Please help!
Thank you.

Re: Playbook just stopped playing embedded videos

I tried the sight and watched two random videos without problems. Try doing a three button reset. Hold down the Power Button and both volume buttons at the same time for 15 seconds and then wait 1 minute then hold the power button only until the red light flashes then release it and wait for the PlayBook to reboot which will be about 4 minutes. This may clear glitches in the software.

Go to Internet options and clear cache, close and reopen browser. This happens usually when the cache is overloaded by big flash videos

Re: Playbook just stopped playing embedded videos

I finally find out the problem, it seems that the website it isn't working if the "Private browsing" is enabled. Thank you for your help.
