@rorie: Last time I tried to watch a livestream was last week. I'll try again today for UPF. It won't let me see the stream with the gamespot player, even though I remember watching Live GameSpot content awhile ago and their stream worked fine.
To answer jSlack yes other videos and html5 videos work for me.
Ever since GB adopted the Gamespot livestream player I've been unable to watch the livestreams. I've tried it with Adblock on/off and even removed from chrome. Then I tried IE, FF and Opera and the stream still wouldn't start. Restarting my computer, logging off and on again changes nothing. I'm running on Windows 7.
So what happens it I click the play button and the loading icon flashes up for a second and then all I get is a black screen.
