Problem playing (free) on-line OnDemand at Comcast website

Problem playing (free) on-line OnDemand at Comcast website

   

Browser: Opera 9.8 - Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) Presto/2.12.388  Version/12.15

(this is a standard browser version that virtually always otherwise works at Comcast websites for email & account maintenance & bill pay, even when other customers are reporting issues using other browsers and browser versions at Comcast's web sites ...  dot net or dot com).

 

Typically I don't stream from Comcast on-line, but with this browser,  ...

 

fwiw:  at Comcast website on-demand, watch Tv on-line, 

The free tv episodes from CBS stream & play.

The free tv episodes from NBC or any from Hulu never start, no errors, they just don't start.

 

Any of the same videos will stream & play if viewed directly at Hulu & at the Tv network's web sites, (ABC, CBS, NBC, CW).

 

examples:

---------------------------------

   excpt this episode, S5 | Ep4 - Outside the Bubble
   42mins - but only 25min played & video stopped w/msg "you just watched .." & went to next episode

Re: Problem playing (free) on-line OnDemand at Comcast website

 

Update:

 

So i found that using Opera 64bit  browser, (same version number, same version plugins),

The free tv episodes listed previously, & a dozen or so additional randomly selected videos, 

all stream & play fine  w/o the issue posted above, which at this point only occurs using my Opera 32bit browser version.   Signed in or not, & Home Pass active or not, makes no difference in either Browser.

 

    64bit browser: Opera 9.8 - Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.15

    Flash version: 11.7.700.252
