Site doesn't work

Posted

Videos and perhaps other features of hgtv don't display correctly. For instance:

http://www.hgtv.com/shows/love-it-or-list-it/love-it-or-list-it12-videos

Just shows blank. Works as expected in webkit browsers.

Right-click in the player area of webkit. What type of player is used? Flash, HTML5 . . . . . .

Right click doesn't show anything. It appears to be using Adobe Flash.

To complicate matters, the video is now playing in Firefox. Previously, it had just been displaying as a blank space - not only on my computer.

Going to http://watch.hgtv.com/live.html and clicking on the big play arrow still does nothing. In a webkit browser, it displays a list of TV providers.

If it helps, I'm not interested in being able to run this particular site but in solving what appears to be a problem with firefox. If there's a good explanation for why the site isn't running, that's just as good as making the problem go away. Maybe better :-)

As I said, I'm interested in firefox not the website. If a site displays correctly in webkit but not firefox, it's a concern. Doesn't help if the website fixes the problem. It will just show up again on another website.

Note that Firefox is using the old Flash Player 11.2 esr NPAPI branch on Linux while browsers like Chrome/Chromium is using a different player (and newer branch) as in Pepper Flash Player or PPAPI. Some websites do not support the old 11.1 (eol, used by Android/PlayBook) and 11.2 (Linux) Plugins anymore very well or at all.

Adobe however is looking to perhaps support Linux again with the NPAPI Flash Player as they released a Flash Player 23.0 Beta builds for 32-bit/64-bit Linux.

http://blogs.adobe.com/flashplayer/2016/08/beta-news-flash-player-npapi-for-linux.html#sthash.DFJ9us1Q.xirBv0W9.dpbs

A easy way to use this is to place the libflashplayer.so file in a created plugins folder at ~/.mozilla/plugins/

However the Flash Player 23 NPAPI Beta builds may not work on all sites properly either as Twitch.tv for example gives a black window in player however audio works.

Adobe does do new Beta builds as a build I downloaded on Sept 6 was 23.0.0.162 (same as version on Win/Mac) and the current beta build is 23.0.0.173

Only one copy of flashplugin (as you say, 11.2) shared by both firefox and webkit browser. Substituting 23.0 makes no difference. With either build, webkit works as expected but not firefox.
