Have you come across a blank page where you expected to see a video, audio player, or other interactive content? Often these types of multi-media are built upon a program called Adobe Flash and you must tell your Chrome browser to allow that content to play on your computer.  Below are some steps to try. If you need further help please contact VIN at

  1. Visit the page you would like to view.
  2. In the URL address bar, click on on the padlock icon to the left of the web address.

  3. Set the Flash setting to Allow on the drop down list, or click on Site settings to open all Chrome settings.  

  4. If you clicked on Site settings, find the setting for Flash and set the drop-down option to Allow.

  5. Close this settings tab and refresh the original page you were trying to view.
  6. Flash should work on VIN pages now.

Clinicians are reminded that you are ultimately responsible for the care of your patients. Any content that concerns treatment of your cases should be deemed recommendations by colleagues for you to consider in your case management decisions.

Images posted by VIN community members and displayed via VIN should not be considered of diagnostic quality and the ultimate interpretation of the images lies with the attending clinician. Suggestions, discussions and interpretation related to posted images are only that -- suggestions and recommendations which may be based upon less than diagnostic quality information.
