Right-click on the Wisevid player and select Settings. Find the Display tab. Turn off Hardware Acceleration. This helps get rid of certain compatibility issues with some video cards.

Go to the third tab in the Setting menu called Local Storage. Set the slider bar to 10MB or Unlimited.

Play the video for a few seconds and then hit pause. Allow the video to buffer fully and then hit play.

Update to the latest version of Adobe flash player.
