The website is SBS OnDemand in Australia. When there is a program that I want to watch, I know that it won't work in Chrome, won't work in Chromium, probably will work in Firefox, and when Firefox doesn't work, I use Chrome in Windows XP in VirtualBox (which also, very occasionally, won't play the video).
The website video uses Adobe Flash Player. The browsers use the following versions of Flash Player:
- Firefox: 126.96.36.1998
- Chromium: 188.8.131.52
- Chrome: 184.108.40.206
- VirtualBox>Windows XP>Chrome: 220.127.116.11
Why would Firefox (using older version of Flash Player) work, while Chromium and Chrome don't? I ask this question purely out of curiosity. It's been occurring for a year or two on several different computers using various Linux distros, so I'd love to get to the bottom of it. My main computer uses Ubuntu 14.04.
