On 16. July, NoScript has been updated to v10.1.8.5 version. Among all newly features added in this release, there is also one change to the MSE media: reporting and blocking e.g. on 'youtube' site (In a previous NoScript releases, various changes have been made to Media Source Extensions etc.; please see 'LINK')
It turned out, that now '<media>' option is needed to properly display and watching videos on 'youtube' website. Without '<media>' selected - for example - via "CUSTOM" preset, there is a NoScript message instead of a movie. And it looks this way (there is also a big NoScript icon that moves and floats, during a mouse cursor is put on an icon but without clicking):
Code: Select all
Closing this message via little [x] icon in upper right corner, has no effect - background has black color and only - let say - the wheel is spinning. Normally, in this moment film should start etc. However, clicking on the above message, the window similar to the XSS suspicious requests, opened. It looks this way:
Code: Select all
NoScript Blocked Objects Allow <MEDIA> (o) Allow https://www.youtube.com/watch ( ) Allow https://www.youtube.com [OK] [Cancel]
Summarizing: now, '<media>' option is needed to display videos on 'youtube' website. I would like to ask if I would like to ask if someone of you also noticed this? What is your opinion: should '<media>' option be added, for example, in the "CUSTOM" preset for this site or apply the "global" setting and mark this option via "TRUSTED" preset in options "General" tab?
Honestly, I'm a little confused, because of "MSE media reporting and blocking" message (see 'v 10.1.8.3' [in:] "LINK") which is - to be honest - happening. I mean, without '<media>' option, there is an information (see above) and movie can not be loaded - so, here we have reporting and blocking.
Taking all of this into consideration, what should be done with 'MSE'? If new feature is for reporting and blocking maybe it should be blocked, but then there are problems with movies on 'youtube' site.
So, has anyone of you had added '<media>' option e.g. via NoScript options window, after update and had a similar problems with movies loading on 'youtube'?
Thanks, best regards.
