I like slimjet - but cannot get it to play many videos. I've tried following all the directions on the slimjet site but still no go. eg I cannot play the clips on this fox news site
https://video.foxnews.com/v/5976940354001/?playlist_id=938973798001#sp=show-clips

My system is tahr 6.0.2

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hey Champ, tell the folks @ home which version you're running.

The page you referenced plays fine for me aboard v21.0.2.0..

Plays fine for me running v21.0.3.0 (peebees slimjet_lxsc_spot_21.0.3.0.sfs). I'm in the current LxPupSc right now. I did have some issues with the Slimjet versions between 18.0.5.0 and 20.0.4.0 on some sites so I skipped those...

6.0.2, huh? Sketchy....

Earlier Tahr builds had issues until they reached 6.0.5.. the "standard" as I see it.

I think this cat runs 6.0.2.

I wonder if your page flies on their setup?

Thanks Semme - tahr version 6.0.2 was not the only problem - but definitely the main problem. Once I upgraded to 6.0.5 and added the appropriate (newer) version of ffmpeg to match slimjet chrome 70 engine ...all starting working.

I appreciate the assistance.

BTW - this also solved the same video problem I was having with vivaldi.
