Hulu not playing


#1

Just got the Brave update. Now, suddenly, Hulu is not playing at all.


HULU.com Runtime Error

Hi @Mo86,

You need to install Widevine first before using DRM-protected content. There should be a puzzle icon at URL bar, click that icon, then “Install and run Widevine”.

Hope that can help
Thanks

Thanks, but that icon is not showing.

@Mo86, thanks for the info. Need to check it first.

For now, can you try this:

  • Visit spotify.com
  • There you should see the puzzle icon
  • Install and Run Widevine
  • Try to access Hulu again.

Did that. Seemed like it worked for a moment. Played a few moments of video, then went back to Error 5005 network error.


#6

Thanks for the info @Mo86,
Will check it and get back to you asap. :slightly_smiling_face:

Appreciated, thank you.

Now I am trying to play a video on CWTV.com and it won’t play.

I can’t believe I am going to have to switch browsers again! Everything was fine until this latest update. Is there anyway to switch back to the old version? I love Brave, but I need to have video capability!


#10

I can confirm that I’m having the same issue as well


#11

I was going to say, “Oh, good!” I don’t mean I am glad you are having the same issue. But at least I am not the only one!


#12

Can you try putting shields down to see if this solves your issue?

Thanks,
Lauren


#13

Hm, it seems to work with shields down. Is that safe to do, though?


#14

Agreed. I do not like to do that either, a few other video services are no longer working within Brave currently.

Reddit embed videos used to run fine before the old update as well.
