I was trying to load this video from the Guardian website but it doesn't seem to work. Other videos on the site don't seem to work either.

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (64-bit) and have flash (13,0,0,206) installed and working correctly on other sites, it's just the Guardian media player that doesn't seem to work.

At first I thought it was because I am using adblock, but even if I disable it the video still fails to load.

I am using Chrome 34.0.1847.132. The video works in my Firefox, which doesn't have adblock installed at all.
