    i think it has to do with the format limitations of the device. I have the same problem with cnet video podcast. Device just doesnt play them.

    You'll have to wait for Froyo 2.2 and Adobe Flash 10.1. CNN videos are done with Flash. I just got 2.2 installed on my Droid tonight along with Flash 10.1 and the videos on CNN play just fine.

    I haven't tried skyfire. Yet. But I think the cnn mobile/touch site video is in a quicktime format.

    Just tried and was able to watch one of the videos on CNN's homepage with Skyfire so you should be good to go.
