Trial and Error

Ghost in the Video Player

October 12, 2007 10:05 AM

I’m not really into scary things. Don’t like horror movies. Not into blood and gore.

So when I got an email today about a new site that Discovery’s Travel Channel has launched for its “Most Haunted Live” program with user-submitted sightings of ghosts and haunted houses, I was a little nervous about checking it out.

Would I see a ghost or some other spooky creature?

Fortunately, the answer is neither since I couldn’t get any of the video to load. Whew.

Then I spotted a tab for “videos” and clicked on that, which took me through to the home page for Travel Channel. Once there, I clicked on the video tab again. Yet again selected “Most Haunted Live,” going in through the front door rather than the back door this time.

And, let’s see, five minutes later, the video was still loading… Maybe there’s a ghost in the video player.
