Distorted Audio on ZDF Mediathek
I want to watch this video on the ZDF Mediathek but the Audio is extremely distorted: https://www.zdf.de/serien/familie-braun/1-lara-102.html
Everything is fine on Safari. Does someone have the same problem?
Some videos on German channels sound distorted. It is a problem that has already been reported and is allegedly by reason of some proprietary audio codecs used by these channels.
Great browsers, such as Chrome and Safari can pay the licenses to include them in their browsers, which obviously (still) can not make Vivaldi
@mau It looks like this might be a problem with the web site doing something weird when Vivaldi connects. When I changed Vivaldi's user agent (using Developer Tools) to make the web site think that "Opera on macOS" was connecting, the video played fine.
@xyzzy Yes with the Opera user string it works. Weird!
Especially because other videos such as: https://www.zdf.de/comedy/neo-magazin-mit-jan-boehmermann work out of the box.
Use Einstellungen in video bar and change to Qualität Medium.
And some videos are differently encode dependand on user agent by the ZDF media-on-demand server.
Yes, there are some videos mis-decoded by Vivaldi. Our dev is busy with other video and audio bugs, she works on a bug fix.
@gwen-dragon Okay thanks. As for now the user string trick works for me.

The direct link to the media file also works.
