Cannot play videos on Joel Osteen's web site

Post by RealQuickQuestion » Sun Aug 24, 2014 1:24 pm

https://www.joelosteen.com/Pages/VideoStreaming.aspx#

Wanted to play sermon #626, but NoScript on FireFox is blocking it. With everything on the page allowed, all I see is an encircled Play button over a white field.

The same video will play through IE 11 without issue.

Any ideas?

I can't get it to work (in SeaMonkey 2.28, like Firefox 31) even with NS disabled. Nothing related in the Error Console.
However, in Pale Moon (like Firefox 24.6), works with allowing only:

Code: Select all

+joelosteen.com
+googleapis.com
+theplatform.com

I got it working, Gecko 32, HTML5, using:

Code: Select all

+scorecardresearch.com
+conviva.com
+theplatform.com
+akamaihd.net
+facebook.net
+googleapis.com
+facebook.com
+joelosteen.com


Took a lot of clicks.
And scorecardresearch.com is required. Maybe there's a message in there ;-).

realquickquestion, i think it would have helped if you had mentioned which build of "noscript" you were using..

when you are having problems with a webpage and you are trying to figure out what the problem is, one thing to try is running "firefox" in "safe mode", where no addons are loaded (flash player still works), and see if the webpage then functions properly, in this case, where the video will play..

one way to launch "firefox" in "safe mode" is to hold down the "shift" key, on your keyboard, while launching "firefox".. another way is to use "start"/"run" and, in the dialogue-box, there, type "firefox.exe -safe-mode" (minus quotations)..

i didn't have any problems playing the joel olsteen video.. in "noscript", i "allow-ed" scripting for "joelosteen.com" and "theplatform.com", and i had to allow the "blocked objects", for "theplatform.com", to allow "flash player" to run, to display the video..

i am using "firefox 24.7 ESR" and "noscript build 2.6.8.36"..

Yeah, that message is probably that Giorgio needs to update some surrogates ;)

I was actually thinking along the lines of a religious context ;-).

I know :)

Actually, does it work without scorecardresearch and facebook if you set about:config -> noscript.fakeScriptLoadEvents.onlyRequireJS to false and make default all other noscript.fakeScriptLoadEvents.* prefs? (checking for some strict script inclusion enforcer different from require.js)

They've fixed the problem, now it works in SeaMonkey 2.28 with only the sites mentioned here
