    Media Player help!!

    Anyone else having trouble watching the video's from the media player on the websites?

    The video does not seem to load. I went through my browser settings, nothing has changed. I can watch videos on NFL network, and ESPN, but not on the Giants website. Very odd.

    I have a problem playing vids on this site and NFLdotcom too. The videos always play in slow motion and stuff... I think I'm having a problem with my video card, drivers or something. You might or might not be having the same problems but I'd run a check on them also to make sure your good.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    I can't play them on my iPad, but can play them on mt desk top, very frustrating. When someone figures out why, please post.

    I think it was last year when Adobe announced they were no longer supporting Flash for mobile web browsers. Apple spearheaded the anti-Flash campaign a while ago and a lot of device manufacturers have gone the route of playing flash videos from websites within an app instead of the web browser.

    Try the Giants mobile app to see if the videos are available on there? Link below

    I have been having these problems also with my iPad3. After reading the post above, I tried the Giants mobile app but that just gave me something "iphone sized". Then I did a general internet search on this flash problem. That pointed me to a free app you can get at the Apple Store named Puffin. Puffin is kind of like safari - it's a web browser - so you plug in giants.com and then navigate from there to the video you want to watch. That has worked great for me so far (just figured it out today after a few frustrating days like you've all been experiencing).

    You sometimes have to pause and let the downloading get ahead of the video streaming (or else it can be a little jittery), but if you do that, you get back to the great, full screen, HD video that you've been used to. Not sure what happened behind the scenes at Giants.com to create this issue, but until they fix it this should keep you going. Enjoy!
