pc issue Twitter videos and twitch streams won't play

6 posts in this topic

This has been happening for months and I've simply been using chrome whenever I want to watch a stream/twitter video but it's getting so annoying at this point I might completely change browsers if I can't find a solution.  

In short, twitter videos won't ever play (GIFs will,) and will display a message saying "The media could not be played." On top of that, every single twitch stream never starts playing, and the little circle keeps spinning forever. As I said as soon as I change browsers those problems disappear.

I'd really appreciate some help.

What version of Maxthon are you using.  I am on 5.1.0.2200 and Twitch and Twitter videos play just fine.

However it says that my browser is up to date and I've tried downloading the latest version a couple times and it keeps happening.

Have you tried the version I mentioned?  I just watched a few minutes of a video on Twitch and as I said, had no problem.

I also have been having the problem, even update my maxthon. 

 

How are you able to make it play?  Twitter vidoes don't play, twitch livestreams don't play only the said broadcaster videos load.

 

Having to change to chrome just to watch twitch videos.

Can you link to some videos that don't work for you so others can check.
