avast doesnt block specific videos, only when it detects virusses in it and that on-access scanner

i do think you should look into codecs

Why do you think Avast is causing the problem? Have you tried a different browser?

codecs (coder/decoder) are used to decode the stream of video and audio from a file, if a codec is not installed on your system then you wont be able to see the video or hear the audio.....

check for  kazaa codec pack or any codecpack

like Jahn also asked, why you suspect Avast of "blocking" the video

If you still can't play them try k-lite codec pack from cnet
