    Why am I able to view a particular live video stream on a website* in Firefox, but not in Chrome and Opera?

    All the extensions I use in Chrome and Opera I also use in Firefox.

    In fact, I use more extensions if Firefox than I do in Chrome and Opera.

    *Video stream is on:

    It works for me in Cent, which is Chromium based.

    Thanks @roger_m for the input.

    Just trying to figure out why this is.

    It only happens with live video. I am assuming Washington Post made a new change to their website as this issue suddenly appeared today -- has been fine till today. Maybe they changed their source for live video feed and that has something to do with it.

    Usually it's the other way around -- occasionally have had to view video in Chrome or Opera that won't play in Firefox.

    Um. Did you look at the video just before you posted? At that time I'm pretty sure the live video feed had ended and was replaced by canned video.

    Got fixed today :)

    I had emailed their IT Dept. a couple of times reporting the issue.

    Was a server-side issue -- no surprise there.
