When I try to watch HISTORY Vault, the video player is either blank or videos won’t play.

HISTORY Vault is currently only available for viewing within the United States. 

The following operating systems and web browsers are currently supported for historyvault.com web  viewing:

Windows 10: Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox
OS X: Chrome, Safari 12, Safari 11 (limited support)

We do not currently support viewing on mobile and TV browsers. If you would like to watch HISTORY Vault on a mobile device or TV, please use one of our apps, which are available on Apple's App Store, the Google Play store and for Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices.

If you've confirmed that you are using one of our supported web browsers, that your internet connection is good, and you are still having trouble, please follow these troubleshooting steps:
