I am having problems watching video on your site. Can you help me?

The majority of videos on IMDb are in HTML5 and should play on any modern browser. We do have a small number of video still in Flash format, although these are being phased out so you should not need Flash for most video content. If you're having trouble viewing a video on IMDb, we recommend the following: Try disabling any pop-up or ad-blocking software. Some ad-blocking utilities can prevent video from streaming. Try a different browser. If one browser works and another does not, this indicates that the issue is with that particular browser configuration. Try again later -- there might be a temporary network issue affecting video streaming with via your internet connection. The problem may simply resolve itself after a few hours.

If you're experiencing playback issues with IMDb TV, please first review the Prime Video System Requirements for Computers.

If you've confirmed that your device, web browser, and internet connection meet the minimum requirements and are still experiencing playback issues, please contact Prime Video support for further assistance.


I could swear that a video was available for viewing a few days ago, but I do not see it anymore. What happened?

Some of our video content is made available by external content partners who may impose restrictions on when a title can be streamed and for how long. Typically, many titles have a window during which they are available for online viewing. When this window closes, the video is removed from IMDb.


I just watched a film that featured nudity and other offensive content. Is this allowed?
