The video is totally black. In console it has many red error messages. But in Chrome, the video plays ok.

What did web developer on these two sites did that make the video can only play in Chrome?

Change your useragent to:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/47.0.2526.73 Safari/537.36 OPR/ 

No idea why, but recently this is becoming more of an issue. The maxthon/ string causes some issues, and the OPR/ string seems to fix some issues with some flash content.

Thanks, Rob, this video is not available in my region, could you help to confirm it?

This is what Chrome says, meaning "cannot get the video and do not support playing in your region"

I get the same error, but that at least means it's trying to load the video. If you don't do the UA change then you just get a black screen.

I'm pretty sure that if the OP checks it, it should work.

@scottchu.tw Hi there, it seems that the video is only available in your region (Taiwan), while we test it only see it's loading. While in MX5 it's only a black screen. Would you like to change the UA as suggested by 7twenty to see if it could solve your issue?

@BugSir006 @scottchu.tw Indeed, there is a regional blockade. For me it works fine, but through vpn set to taiwan.

My user agent is: 

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Windows NT 6.1; U; WOW64; IA64; en) AppleWebKit/599.0+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Maxthon/5.0.4.1000 Chrome/58.0.3029.110 Safari/537.36 OPR/45.0.2552.812 QupZilla/2.1.2

so it probably is not affected.
