Our most recent Web version of TextFree allows you to play & download videos. If you are experiencing issues with playing these videos, please read the information below in an attempt to resolve the issue.
- Video will not play in TextFree Web
- Unable to download the video using the 'Download video' link
Cause & Resolution
In short, some Web browsers do not support the ability to play videos in the TextFree Web interface. With that being said, we have a workaround to successfully play these videos on your computer. Please see below for more information.
Step 1: Click the 'Problem playing? Download video' link
If you are unable to play the video in the conversation screen within the TextFree Web interface, we recommend clicking the link. (seen below the video itself)
This action should open up a new browser window in which the video will play via a high-resolution link. If the video does not play or the window does not open, please move onto step 2.
Step 2: Save the video to your computer
You may have to download/save the video to your computer in order to view it on TextFree Web. Please perform the following:
- Right-click the link
- Click download or 'Save Link As'
- Choose the location to save the video
- Click 'Save'
Following the above steps will save the video to the folder you've specified. You can then locate the video on your computer and play via the MP4 player you have set as your default.
