Video not view-able

I have been visiting several sites lately in which the video content
was not view-able.


There is a video there that displays perfectly in MS Windows in either
IE8 or 9 and Firefox. However, under FreeBSD-8.3 with the latest
version of Firefox all I get is a black box. No controls to click,
etcetera. This sort of thing happens way to frequently on way to many
sites. It cannot be a simple "blame Microsoft" thing since these sites
work under Firefox when used in MS Windows.

Does anyone have a possible solution?
