There are fixes on the Bug Report Forum for this. Also, on Customer Service. I don't remember what they were exactly, but I had the same issue. Here is my attempt at remembering.

Assuming you're on Windows 7 or beyond, go to Start and search for D3prefs.txt.

Open it and make sure that the following lines match this:

PlayedCutscene0 "31"
PlayedCutscene1 "31"
PlayedCutscene2 "23"
PlayedCutscene3 "143"

If those values change, the videos won't properly play, and previos patches have changed them for some reason.

Hope this helps.

You have to be careful too when passing zones or chapters. i mistakenly skipped the fight between imperius and diablo for 4 months... did not know it existed until browsing diablo related stuff on youtube. then it all made sense lol... wasnt sure why imperius was beat to hell. i just assumed it happened at one point during the invasion.

remove your hands from the keyboard and mouse between acts and zones. ANY button will cancel a cutscene
