How to get to the Geeks on tablet

Hi, I just joined “the Geeks” and hope to learn a lot, as a semi-literate digital user.  Before this I’ve been watching the weekly videos, mostly on my Samsung tablet with no problems.  But when I got on the website as a member and tried to pull up a tutorial video, I got a gray screen with a “this plug in not supported” message.    I also couldn’t get more than one layer into the forums.  I’m the only user on our wifi right now, and the tablet is pretty new and doesn’t have too much extra stuff loaded on it.  What do I need to do to watch you on the tablet again??

Hello Pam … well, that’s not good! You should be able to watch videos and use the forum on a tablet, so I’ll need to look into this. The videos are of varying ages – older ones may have a problem. If you let me know which one doesn’t work, I’ll check it out. Some of them may have a link to click, called “Alternate Link” or something like that.

Thanks  Christ.  I’m traveling and using the tablet, but I am able to get further into the forums this time.  I’ll give the videos another try.  I think I was trying to use one of the early videos about google photos.   I’ll keep you posted.
