VidMe – YouTube is the most popular online video sharing network but it does not offer the privacy many of us would prefer. In order to better control who gets to see your videos, log on to VidMe. The difference between YouTube and VidMe is that videos shared using VidMe work only for the intended recipient and cannot be forwarded, downloaded, or made viral without the video owner’s approval.

    If it works on on one browser but not the other it must be something on your end. Tried Chrome or Firefox?

    Okay .. I think that I found where the problem lies.

    The VidMe doesn't want to work, using the Opera browser.

    It works fine with IE which I try to Never Use!

    Don't know if it works with Firefox!?

    No idea why it is happening but .. I signed up for VidMe and uploaded a short video.

    Everytime I try to view the video, it freezes my browser and I have to use the Task Manager to end my browser session.

    The program (VidMe) actually 'stops' my browser from running!
