Topic: Video play on sites such as foxnews.com, cnn.com, etc.

Video links don't want to play. I'm sure the sites have set up some test to prevent people who don't want to give up their privacy from seeing them. Is there a work around? Thank you.

Those videos don't work because they require a proprietary plugin owned by...Google.  Unfortunately we no longer have any workarounds.  Thanks to...Google.

Google stopped support of Silverlight in Chromium (this was our previous "hack" to get Netflix and other videos to play by telling them we're Firefox). 

Google will license Widevine freely to just about anyone EXCEPT other Chromium browsers (though we've asked them for years now to provide it to us).

OK Alok, thank you for the information and for working on this situation!! I appreciate it!!

Videos won't work on Facebook. Is this due to the same Google plugin that's missing?

You need to find a way to show these videos.

Hopefully you now have a way that allows us to see videos on yahoo and other sites.  Let me know please.

I love Epic, what it does and what it stands for. BUT, i'm getting increasingly frustrated not being able to play videos on Facebook pages, or in PMs sent to me.
I seen the difficulty Epic has with Google as posted above, but when will the problem be resolved?

Sorry about that...we are working on this and Google last week said they would *finally* get their Widevine plugin to use which would let us support video at so many sites such as Netflix.
