Chrome and Videos
« on: May 18, 2017, 11:41:34 PM »
Something is amiss with the latest of SID and multimedia that Chrome needs to play videos.. I cannot play anything in Chrome but go over to FF and they play fine

Anyone else up to latest code and using Chrome that can confirm, please?

Not a chrome user but have you tried renaming-removing the profile? If you haven't then rename "~/.config/google-chrome" to "~/.config/google-chrome-bak" and check if it solves the playback issue.
If it doesn't then open the following page in Chrome,

YouTube HTML5 Video Player

Are all the boxes under "What does this browser support?" checked?

Cheers!!!

Welp.. I did the bak of the existing profile and the video sounds were there on youtube...

So I went back to the original profile with no changes and of course video sound is working there now as well

Could very well have been issues on the youtube servers... Lot of weirdness going on today

Thanks hakerdefo!
