      Also the video site I use doesn't load any videos. Looking at the source of the page the web address of the video is http://127.0.0.1:64653/69273 which doesnt work.
      This is a loopback address leading to your own PC. When you see this it usually means a Stack or DNS problem. What OS are you using as the cure depends on this?

      I don't have any problem with theoatmeal.com/quizzes, I can access the main site and the various sections. Interesting site by the way.

      I have to go off line for a while so I will leave you with this.
      Winsock
      For Vista and Win 7.

      1. Press Windows button.
      2. Type Cmd.
      3. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
      4. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
      5. Restart the computer.

      For XP

      • Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

        2. Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults type:
        netsh winsock reset catalog

        3. Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults type.
        netsh int ip reset reset.log

        Reboot the machine.

      If you still have problems open the Run box and type; ipv6 uninstall and click OK. Now repeat the resets as above.


      DNS
      You could also clean out your DNS settings, by opening an Elevated Command Prompt and typing; ipconfig /flushdns
      You should see Windows IP Configuration
      Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache

      Reboot the PC

      If you have a Mac or Linux, your on your own I’m afraid. I hope this is of some help.
