Still broken here, windows 10 and osx, 18.5.

Watching the help page load for the 'labs flowmap visualize' sop, 2 mins so far. Video playbar is there, but no video. All the little icons for the rest of the sops in the left-hand nav bar are slooowly loading in, I assume once they finish, the video will appear.

*time passes*

Nope, no video. Frustrating.
