I'm trying to stream live TV and this message appears - "Error: No valid source could be found" I'm on the Fox Business web site and the message appears in the Watch Fox Business box on the lower right of the page. I'm using a MAC with the latest OS. I have another MAC in the house and I'm able to access streaming content. I can also access the content by using Chrome.

Apparently the older MAC that can stream the video has Flash. The new MAC Mini didn't have it and I didn't want it because of the negative things I've heard. Unfortunately I needed it on the new computer and reluctantly downloaded it. Problem solved. Thanks for your response.

Are there any difference between the two Macs? For example is there a plugin that is installed or a Firewall/Antivirus (I noticed you had an antivirus extension in your Firefox profile)

The other thing I noticed is that you do not have a video player extension installed, HTML5 should default unless there is a specific type of video for that specific codec that is causing that error.
