When a post includes what I assume to be a Gawker hosted video, if I don't play the video shortly after opening the tab, it fails to play.

My browser workflow is to scan the front page, opening articles I want to read in a new tab, which I then go back and read. If I get to one that has a Gawker video, I used to be able to refresh the page and it would reload and I could hit play and watch the video. Now, when I reload I get this:

and it doesn't seem to go away no matter how long I wait or whether I refresh the page.
