    I doubt it will work if you can't play it any browser.

    wayback only supports webpages text and images ... all links to downloads / video should be considered dead.

    What Bjs said.

    The Wayback Machine is a free service and their space needs would be staggering if they were able to actually keep every video they index. They'd never have enough money donated to them to pay for that.

    They seem to have gotten it to work on a video that was on the site.

    The video you linked to doesn't seem to actually have any video there, which, for reasons mentioned, aren't very surprising.

    im not sure about that to me both users seem to refer to vids to youtube which got pulled. To me that sounds the vid is no longer on youtube which seems to be similar to my vids. If anyone has the vids themselves they downloaded before they got pulled they cans how me. One time I try it says i need to download flash http://web.archive.org/web/20120129073931/http://www.nbc.com/whos-still-standing/video...eddie/1380819/.
