SOLUCIÓN

Activar "Reproducción de contenido DRM" en las preferencias del navegador, en la pestaña "Contenido".

 

PROBADO EN

Firefox 53 (Linux), la reproducción de contenido DRM no viene habilitada por defecto en este navegador. Supongo que será el mismo problema que afecta a Chrome.

Chrome no longer supports any form of flash player. Flash cannot be used with Chrome. This is actually due to some security issues with Flash Player and many websites no longer use the plugin.

 

Firefox seems to be not working due to a couple of scripting errors as it is across multiple OS's and Widevine is working on other websites.

 

For Linux users, try using Konqueror. It's part of the KDE Desktop Environment package. It's working fine on there (listening to Dolly Parton's version of House of the Rising Sun at the moment on Linux thanks to Konqueror) and seems to have a higher fault tolerance with scripting errors. It is either that or the bug is in and of itself in the firefox code, but I have had problems loading the site at all in Opera.

 

For Windows Users, I'm not entirely sure as I use the desktop application over there. I would say try Edge if you have Windows 10 because it now supports plugins, including flash - just make sure they are installed.

 

For IOS, try your native Safari Application with the approprate plugins.

I still cannot use Firefox in Linux Mint.
