Unable to stream video from npo.nl website

Post by AndaW » Fri Aug 25, 2017 1:41 pm

Configuration: Windows 10 [x64] with all updates,Eset Internet Security 10.1.219 [x64],Malwarebytes 3.22, Firefox 55.0.2 [x64 & x86] with flash & widevine installed.
After reinstall PC and configuring everything works except a small problem with Firefox / Sandboxie.


Browser works and all sites open fine when NOT running in sandboxie. When Firefox runs in Sandboxie I only have a problem with my local (dutch) TV site; site loads fine but does NOT play the video signal. In defaultbox all programs can access internet.

Are there any other files,other than license check from Sandboxie that need internet access...? How do I get my local TV site to work again in FF?

thanks
Angel

Hello AndaW,

What's your Sandboxie version?
Can you please provide a link to the website so that I can test it?
Does the issue happen in a new sandbox with default settings?

Regards,
Barb.-

Hello barb,

Sandboxie 5.20 64 bit.

Yes,tried it with fresh sandbox; same result. Btw chrome has the same issue when it's sandboxed in its own fresh sandbox.

thank you,
anda

MERGED INFO FROM DUPLICATE POST:
Firefox 5.5.3.0 and latest Chrome. The issue happens with Firefox (also with a standard created sandbox) and Google Chrome. Also no difference with or without addons/extensions.

Hello,

I have the same configuration as AndaW (without Eset and widevine) and firefox 55 doesn't work for me in sandboxie 5.20. I tried the 5.21 beta but no success.

I get a blank screen, no page loading. I didn't encounter the problem wit FF 54. Chrome, Opera, Pale Moon and Icedragon all work flawlessly.

Hello AndaW,

Unfortunately, I cannot test the site due to this:
"Due to broadcasting rights, it is not possible to view this broadcast outside of the Netherlands. ..."

Can you provide another website presenting the same issue?
Or, can you provide the involved video codecs?

-------------------------------- X -------------------------------------
Hello manducator ,

Can you provide a website example that is returning video errors?

If your problem is not related to video streaming, please see:
Firefox installed inside Sandboxie:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=21974&start=75#p129663
Firefox installed outside Sandboxie:
Try a new sandbox with default settings, if that works, delete the contents of your previous Sandbox and re-try Firefox.
If the problem persists, please start a new thread providing this info:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=19746

Regards,
Barb.-

Im sorry,but I can't help with the broadcasting outside the Netherlands. Don't have other problems with video
like youtube, vimeo etc. Maybe I can provide the video codec(s) info that are involved but how do I collect it?
Any help is appreciated..

thank you,


regards,
angel.

Hello AndaW,

You can try right-clicking on the video to see its properties/inspect it.

What is the exact error message that you get?
Do other browsers work?

Does this link work for you? (The site redirects me there instead of playing the original content, due to the restrictions mentioned above):
https://www.bvn.tv/bvnlive

Barb.-

FWIW, I tested the Dutch site, I also get redirected to the link above. Video plays fine for me in W10 64 bits using Firefox 32 bits.

Hi Anda. I am in Latin America, in the NPO site (link you posted), I get:
"Due to broadcasting rights, it is not possible to view this broadcast outside of the Netherlands and Belgium.

We would like to refer you to BVN's live stream. BVN shows a comprehensive selection of NPO TV shows.

Start here the BVN live stream."

UPDATE:
I used a VPN that offers the Netherlands as a free location, with a 2gig limitation. I was not able to play the video inside Firefox x64 Sandboxed, no errors, it just wouldn't play (it did play outside of it).
I made the devs aware.

Chrome Sandboxed worked just fine. Make sure you have the latest version, and to delete its cache.

Hello AndaW,

What is the exact error message that you get -instead of the video- ?
Do other browsers work? (Like Internet Explorer).

Are there any other videos that you can test from that same website? Please test them both outside and inside Sandboxie (new sandbox with default settings).

Regards,
Barb.-

Thank you for update,barb. :)

The exact message I get is:
'Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later' but nothing
happens and there is no [x] to click away the message nor it will vanish as it never completes.

In the non-sandboxed FF on npo/live site I can't find anything on video codecs... just html5. Internet explorer with
npo/live in and outside fresh sandbox still nothing. It was never configured so I used it out of the box. It opens all
sites fine but npo/live does not work.

Other videos (not live and without sandbox) can be played fine in FF/Chrome.

On The BVN site I could view a live program in FF [no sb].

angel
