Playback Error After BBC Video Finishes

  • Moderator

    I can play BBC videos like this one without any issues, but after they finish, I get this error.

    On my PC there is no Flash and it plays with HTML5 at BBC.
    Do you have Flash Player enabled?

    Adobe Flash Player - Version:
    Shockwave Flash 24.0 r0

    It's not using Flash though, as the error dialogue shows.

    I cannot reproduce it now, but it's not unusual.

    I tried on my Win 7 laptop (Win 7 32-bit • Snapshot 1.7.715.3)
    At first the video wouldn't play at all (error you need flash to play this video 😆 ) - but after updating Flash plug-in it plays fine and the "automatic" next video played as well.

    I only have Ublock and ImTranslator as extensions.

  • @Pesala I use BBC for most of my news so I view pages like this all the time - and I've never seen what you're talking about.

    I'm using Vivaldi (and Opera) at home and Vivaldi at work - at home I get UK connection but have an international connection at work since the company proxy is in France (there are slight differences in the BBC content I get served at home and at work). So I really cover a lot of the ways of connecting to the BBC. I've seen cases where content I viewed "in France" (i.e. at work) would refuse to play for my wife at home when I mailed her the link(*), but the message was never what you show - it would say something about "not available in your country" instead.

    (*) Strangely, there are international BBC stories which you're not allowed to view in the UK! I don't understand why... seems the wrong way round to me.


Looks like your connection to Vivaldi Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
