I got the following msg each time that I tried to play these videos:
"OOPS ! Something's gone wrong, check back later to watch this video"
In their terms, I found out that the reason is because I am in Canada.
Seems only people in Ireland or UK  etc can access these nickjr Puffin Rock videos.

QUOTE:
What does Metered/Unmetered next to the video player mean?
Our 'Full episodes' are drawn from ABC TV's iview service.
This service provides unmetered viewing on some ISPs.
Unmetered:
This means you have an internet service provided by one of the ISPs in the 'unmetered' list. You can watch Full Episodes on the ABC Kids site without it counting towards your monthly allowable bandwidth. Please note that viewing clips will still count towards your monthly download. You can see a list of ISPs who currently provide unmetered iview content on the iview FAQ page.
Metered:
For metered ISPs, viewing any of the streaming video content will count towards your download limit. As a guide, watching a 10 minute episode will consume up to 50MB of your download quota. If you are unaware of your download limit, please check with your internet service provider.
For Children:
You should ask your parent or carer for permission before watching any metered video.
