Chosen solution

The link should be potplayer:url without the two forward slashes ("//") and Chrome will soon be the same (Bug 1876729).

You can revert by changing network.url.useDefaultURI to false in about:config then restart the browser.

Here is the explanation from the release notes:

The fallback URL parser for unknown schemes was changed to DefaultURI, this improves specification adherence and web compatibility.
