I have a similar, but different, issue. Video doesn’t play on a school website. The videos are not hosted on YouTube or Vimeo, but have their own watermark.

Example at

The videos play fine in Safari.

I use a desktop Mac mini, Apple M1 chip, macOS Monterey 12.3.1.

I logged into the website and navigated to a video and pushed play.
It didn’t play.
Took the shield down.
Confirmed that Widevine is on.
Confirmed that “sites can play protected content” is enabled.
Restarted browser for good measure.
Still doesn’t play.
With the advice here, I tried it in a private window (shields still down).
Still doesn’t play
I don’t understand the Google DNS thing.
No firewall to check.

Any more suggestions? Thanks.
