Could you be a bit more verbose? Thanks! FWIW: The video plays for me if I do not whitelist the /latest option but the other one.

No video on Windows after whitelisting any of the options.

This is a bug.

Hm, I get it to play on Windows as well. Which Windows version is that?

comment:5 Changed 16 months ago by cypherpunks

Any Windows. But the reason is that it appears on updated (unmodified) browsers, but not on a clean new 9.0a3. Old persistent settings of NoScript? Where to dig?

One way to go could be to disable incremental update and check the state after the full update.

NS11 sucks hard, even on YT.

I confirm, even my modest suffers. It should really be rewritten in WASM as uBlock or HTTPS-E does.

It looks fixed. The video plays in Tor Browser 9.0.4. It's also possible their site's admins changed something to fix it in the 7 months since this ticket was opened.

In Safer mode, I click once which pops up to allow MEDIA for /latest_version and then click again which pops up to allow MEDIA for /videoplayback. The yellow semi-transparent box doesn't tell you you have to click it a second time, so some users might think it doesn't work.

In Safest mode, I click once, and the video's direct link opens and fills the window. I click again, and the blue click-to-play pops-up. I allow MEDIA for /videoplayback and it plays.

Mark as fixed?
