What good is it to any user of this web site to only see "Error 224003" when trying to play any of the previews/trailers from any movie?
Exactly WHAT the hell does That tell anyone, other than the site is unable to play the video--but it IS able to play bloody ADS for movies no one is interested in seeing?
Get it together, IMDb.

Possible solution. Pausing Ghostery allowed this video to play.

I opened a ticket with Ghostery support and their GENIUS reply:


Thanks for reaching out to Ghostery!

It looks like in order to play the videos Enhanced Ad Blocking must be disabled. To disable Enhanced Ad Blocking, please follow these instructions:

Click on the Ghostery icon > Click the middle icon (prohibition symbol) > refresh the page

They cant differentiate between IMDB videos and ADs!! So we need to suffer ads in order to watch trailer videos on IMDB. They dont even have a whitelist option.

Thanks, Ghostery Ad Blocker was definitely causing the Video playback Error # 224003.  I just changed the 'Trust and Restrict' settings in Ghostery to accept IMDB and it's working fine now :-)
