twitter embedded video stopped working

Recommended Posts

hi everyone.

strange problem i got this week.

twitter embedded videos suddenly stopped working, embedded youtube/wines/gifs are playing ok.

in mx i see video preview with text "This browser does not support video playback.", same video playes ok in chrome/ie with same account.   

for example this one from twitter.

what i see with mx


now most interesting thing: 2 pc-s, 1 w10x64 at home, 1 w7x64 at work, maxthon version installed on both and both computers having same problem.


tried  both latest ( portable mx and clean install of full version - same issue (tried with and without copying old user settings/files)

any help and ideas will be appreciated.

In the retro mode it doesn't hear the sound and the volume button is not active. He says "your browser does not support changing the volume"

I have this problem too, using Mx v4.4.8.2000. Videos embedded in tweet posts won't play in either Ultra or Retro, but work fine in Chrome or Pale Moon.

Lately all videos are a bit hit-or-miss, I seem to constantly have to change from Ultra (most videos play in Ultra) to Retro (except some won't play except in Retro.)

Also, way back when I first got Maxthon, it worked wonderfully well with Roboform. Lately, Roboform will only work in Retro mode of Maxthon.

I sure hope these problems get sorted out, I find myself using Chrome or Pale Moon a lot more often than I'd like to these days.
