    Using MacOS Mojave (10.14.1) and Safari 12.0.1

    Click 'play' on embedded video, it looks like it's going to play, then goes back to the image with the 'play' button.

    Click 'show URL', same thing - back to image with play button

    Any ideas what's going on? They worked until a few days ago

    Nope - I have my password saved in Safari, and that's the browser I always use - it was working until a few days ago, and just stopped working.
    Does it work for you on Safari?

    Audio works on youtube, facebook, instagram, etc.
    Device seems to be working fine.
    Used to work here.
    Doesn't work here anymore.

    It started about the same time I noticed some 'new look' features on the site (as per below)...not sure if there was a minor or major change, or? Maybe something happened as part of that?

    This is a little confusing.
    You say audio works with other sites, but video doesn't?

    If this is the case download a different player and see if it works with your Safari.
    You will have to do some troubleshooting to solve this.

    Sorry - that's not what I mean - videos play in Safari everywhere but FABO
    They worked on FABO until recently - just started doing a thing where you click play, it looks like it's about to play, then goes back to the still with the play button superimposed.

    I noticed odd stuff with the video's on here as well and figured it was just my browser.
    Maybe one of these days it will get important enough to check into it more.:D

      its not that simple. It works fine for me - and its hard to know what problems he might be having on his device.

      Hi Joey - have you tried it on Safari?

      My device works on every other site I attempt to view videos.
      The FABO site looks like some updates happened about the same time videos stopped working.
      Thought there might be some correlation.

      Thanks,

      John

      Ok, it might be some safari setting on your mac, or some extension that needs to be upgraded or was upgraded recently.
