No NBC Videos

  • The site is www.nbc.com.

    Using Opera 37 with the Ad-Blocker turned off, this web site will not play videos. The videos on www.hgtv.com will not play either. What is interesting is that Vivaldi 1.1 will play these videos, on the same computer, without a hitch.

  • I've tried a couple of videos no NBC's page and they played fine even with ad-blocker enabled.

    On www.hgtv.com i can only watch the ads.

  • Okay, this is what I've discovered.

    Under Settings/Websites/Plugins, I have selected Click to Play; I don't like videos to automatically play when I visit sites. If I manage www.nbc.com as an exception, the videos will play on this site even if ad-block is turned on.

    I thought I would share what I'd discovered.

  • Continuing my thought with the Settings/Websites/Plugins selection, it seems that there are a few sites that if you have selected Click to Play,that the videos cannot be selected to play -- they are grayed out; this is why I was unable to play videos on www.nbc.com -- they weren't selectable. The http://videos.hgtv.com was another site I couldn't select unless managed as an exception to the Click to Play rule.

  • Under Settings/Websites/Plugins, I have selected Click to Play; I don't like videos to automatically play when I visit sites. If I manage www.nbc.com as an exception, the videos will play on this site even if ad-block is turned on.

    Unfortunately, such problems may occur when using Click to play.
