I’m unable to view the content due to my region. I’ll try logging in via VPN, but in the meantime, would you mind sharing a short screen recording of what happens when you attempt to stream content on the site?

Screen recording using Brave.

I imagine that the site is detecting our ad-blocker (Shields) and halting the stream. Can you try lowering Shields using the Shields panel (in the address bar) and see if that changes the behavior?

Hey @jasonk I just tested the video (via vpn) had no issues with playback. Was a bit slow, but eventually loaded

I tried again with Shields down, all Shields disabled. The advertisement played for about 30s, the actual video still cannot be streamed. Both Sensors and Autoplay showed as blocked too. I then allowed both Sensors and Autoplayed but it didn’t work too.

Hey @jasonk Do turning off site-trackers helps with video playback? Can you paste your site-trackers from Shields also…

I turned off site-trackers, video still can’t play. Only the advertisement video played for about 30s-1min, but the actual video after the advertisement video cannot be played.
