Problems with streaming videos

I've recently experienced problems with streaming videos. Not all, but only some.

It turns out that Freedome somehow blocks as the problem does not exist when I turn Freedome off. Change of virtual location does not help.

Example:

Any idea why this is happening?

Hi NatV,

 

Could you try to turn off Tracking protection in Freedome and retry loading the page to play the video? I tried to disable the tracking protection and the video played for me. May be this article can provide more information to you regarding this issue.

Re: Problems with streaming videos

you're right. Turning off tracking protection makes it possible to stream the videos again. 

It's not a real solution for me though as I don't want to miss that protection, but I also noticed that more and more websites use that tracking via player (and I guess it's the player that does it).

 

I don't like it but what can be done?

Good to know you are able to stream again, @NatV. True, the sites prevent their usage if their tracking is not enabled.
