Hello Sheraz,
I'm afraid most of the music in Word on the Street is taken from music libraries that aren't available to the public.

Hello,
I can't watch the video. There is no error message. Nothing happens..

Hello Veronique,
I'm sorry to hear about your problem. I can play the video OK, so I need to find out some more to help me figure out what's going wrong for you.
Do you know the name of your web browser? For example, it might be Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari. And what sort of computer are you using to look at this page? Is it a Windows 7 PC or an Apple Mac or perhaps some sort of tablet?

Hello,
My computer is a PC, using Windows 7, and my web browser is Firefox.It is strange because I can see some videos (Word Street, about Christmas for example).
Thank you for your help!
Véronique

Hello Véronique,
It is very strange that you can see some videos and not others. Is it always the same videos that don't work?
Could you try using another web browser, like Internet Explorer or Google Chrome and tell us if the video works then?
Best wishes,

Hello Adam,
yes, it is very strange. And yes, it is always the same videos that don't work. And I noticed something strange. The videos that work, I can read just down the video : 'Can't see video? Click here!'. And for the videos that don't work, this sentence does not appear!!
I will try with another browser and I will let you know.
Thanks.
Véronique

Hello Véronique,
That's interesting information. OK, I look forward to hearing more about different browsers. One more question - can you watch the video on this page?
Best wishes,

Hello Adam,
It doesn't work with the other browsers (Google chrome, Internet Explorer). And it doesn't work on the page you gave me... :(
Thanks.
Véronique

Hello Veronique,
That's very interesting. It suggests that something is blocking the video host that we use.
We have similar problems like this for users in China and Iran, but your profile says you are in France. Are you using a home ISP or are you perhaps in an office or school environment that might be blocking websites?
Best wishes,

Hello Adam,
In fact I'm not really in France. I live in a French island, called La Réunion (it doesn't exist in your list, or I couldn't find it!), in the Indian Ocean. And I am at home.
Thanks
Véronique
