Eurosport Player not working

  • Hi,
    The Eurosport Player (www.eurosportplayer.com) isn't working in Opera for Windows. It works perfectly in Firefox. It loads the page, then the player time keeps flicking between 00:00 | 00:00 and 0:00:00 | 1:23:55 as though it keeps restarting the stream. I'm using the Formula E coverage from Paris on 28th April as my test, though others suffer from the same problem.
    I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, disabling ad-blockers and adding this domain to automatically enable Flash, but with no luck.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Richard

  • Had to use a VPN just for the site to let me in. Then, it wants me to subscribe to a paid service to use it. So, I won't be able to test.

    But, I'd test in Chrome and Vivaldi to see if it works fine in them since they're Chromium browsers like Opera. It'll probably work fine in Chrome, but Vivaldi might have the same issue as Opera.

    Do you know if the player even uses Flash?

    You could ctrl + shift + i to load the dev tools. Then, switch to the Network tab and check "disable cache". Then, click the 3 dots on the bottom left, goto "Network conditions", set the user agent to Chrome for windows and then reload the page. If it works then, it's just a browser-detection issue.

    You can also use the "media" and or "xhr" filters to see if a stream is actually being fetched. You can then check the URL for it and maybe load it in a new tab to see if it at least works there.
