More video streaming issues with Palemoon 29.0.1

Hello:

I'm having more problems with video feeds in Pale Moon 29.0.1 (64-bit).

Trying to see this: https://www.washingtonpost.com/?noredir … 2880468724

...  I get this:

Any ideas?

I can hear it, do you have any addons blocking the video?   

Works for me even with my adblocker running.

No.
Only have uBlock Origin 1.16.4.28 running.
But I get the same if I turn it off.

On a hunch, I tried enabling MSE for MP4 video: I get the slow motion sound/video I reported the last time I posted about video feed problems with Pale Moon.

I enable MSE for WebM video, get the same "Please try a different browser" advice.  8^7

This is the latest Pale Moon available.

Thanks for your input.

Cheers,

A.

I had been putting off upgrading from ASCII to Beowulf for the longest while.
The thought/possibilty of WINE/PMail/IrfanView or X acting up really put me off.

But then I saw Perseverance land on Mars (safely) and said to myself: iof NASA can do that, I can upgrade to Beowulf.

So ...

About maybe an hour or so later, here I am.

groucho@devuan:~$ uname -a
Linux devuan 4.19.0-14-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.171-2 (2021-01-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux
groucho@devuan:~$ 

A few configurations did not make it eg: custom terminal colours and window styles, but I'll manage.
Unfortunately, my VirtualBox installation went south.  8^-7
But that's for another thread.

With respect to Palemoon and the video feed problems: the one at the WP is fixed. It seems I can see it without problems.
But a couple of the movie sites I frequent still do not work.

It's still the same version 29.0.1 (64-bit) so it was not (?) a Pale Moon thing.
No idea what is missing.
Maybe some codec?

Just thought I'd send a heads up.

Cheers,

A.

Do the movie sites use DRM? (Links please!) Pale Moon does not and will not support DRM. With that said, some movie sites will work with Microsoft Silverlight but since we're on Linux I don't think that's an option.

Not the ones I frequent ...   8^D !!!
uBlock Origin gets heavy use though.

I don't go near any of those.

uBlock Origin must be blocking a necessary script for the video to play. I got a video playing in a clean profile without any ad / script blockers. And I then promptly deleted that profile as that link has a "Caution" rating at Norton's Safe Web.

https://yesmovies.ag/yes.html looks to be a pirate streaming website, no wonder it doesn't work properly? Im using ungoogled-chromium and it wont even load.
