New Edge (Chromium-based) browser
I have been experimenting with the new Edge browser (Chromium based), and have an interesting problem: some stations simply won't stream, and generate a constantly repeating "Attempting to Resume..." message ("We've run into a problem while streaming...blah bhal"), and never get going. Others work great. For instance, Starz and HBO fail, while local stations (here in Denver) seem to work fine. CNN fails but CNBC works great. Sometimes I get an "Enable Flash" message with a stream sometimes not, sometimes it just starts streaming great. It doesn't seem to matter if I enabled Flash or not.
While monitoring the system Performance via Task Manager, the CPU demands of the new Edge browswer, for stations that work, is far, FAR lower than other browsers like Chrome, which makes a big difference on a low-end PC. Memory consumption seems much lower, too. So the new Edge browser seems very promising to me, except for this "station-by-station exception" problem.
What's going on? Why are the different stations so wildly different? Is there any hope they might all be made to work properly in the new Edge?
