It sounds like an issue with the video on your computer, it could be the video card. But just to make sure you can try first some steps; 1. You can reset the plugin on the browser doing this,
You can try to install the SlingPlayer, you can download it from here.
Give it a try and also test it from a different computer just to make sure that the issue is with the computer
Thanks for your input. I understand how clearing the plugins would help my online viewing at Slingbox.com, but I don't see how it would help viewing with with my slingplayer. Nonetheless, I did clear them, restarted IE, even restarted my computer, but I still could not view online. I also uninstalled slingplayer, reinstalled it, restarted my computer, but it still does not play video. There are period flashes on the player screen, but no video. I am able to view through other computers and my Android phone, using mobile slingplayer.
Many others have written about issues with the Windows 7 64-bit OS. I've been using slingbox and slingplayer for years, since it's inception, so I know it's set up correctly, as confirmed by the use of other means. I can't help but believe it's a Slingmedia compatibility issue with this 64-bit OS.
I've spoken with Sling, and they were USELESS! They said, "Try different drivers." Duh! Thanks for nothing.
I have four windows 7 computerfs that had some kind of windows update sunday and after, all four do not have video on slingplayer but there is audio. There must be some setting I need to reset to restore the video. All four have different video cards so that is not where to look. Help appreciated. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, Marshall Olsen
should add I did the Intenet explorer reset as mentioned above. Further, I can get other inputs, coax and S-Video and these show video and audio.
So, it would seem, the problem is the video driver but not so, as other computers have different drivers. Best (or Worst) of all, I can use slingplayer without difficulties on iPhone and iPad.
One more fact. Does not work with windows 7 32 bit, windows 7 64 bit, and windows xp pro. What is curious is only the composit video from my directv fails to show video, just audio. Now I know the slingbox, cables, and connection are OK because I can view the composite input with my Apple laptop, iPhone, and iPad./
