    CBS news app not playing videos

    Forum volunteer

    hi Karen : 1) if the videos of CBS app doesn't play on your default browser

    try another browser : as example IExplorer 11 at times, fail play videos

    and is Re-Directed to Edge : So try Chrome-Firefox or Edge

    2) Another fix that may work out is >> Uninstall-Reinstall the CBS app

    3) Check that your Pc has the latest-Flash Player updated version

    4) contact CBS : Searched for it and only shows phone number, here's

    Also as reference a question-Answer in Firefox browser a bit old, but may help

  3. Video Lag

    Hi John,

    The latency in playing videos might have been caused by network interruption, or an incompatible graphics driver. For us to isolate the issue, we would like to ask these questions:

    • Does the issue happens when playing videos online or you have experienced the latency when playing videos that are saved on your drive too?
    • Which browser are you using?
    • Have you made any recent changes to your system settings prior to this issue?
    • Have you encountered any network issues?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you use Microsoft Edge and
    Internet Explorer
    to check if the issue persists. If the issue happens in Internet Explorer, please use this article as your reference:

    We look forward for your response.
