Hi,

I have Netflix and using SafeVPN and Air Parrot with Win 10 1803 x64 and FF 61.01

When I log into FF from a server on SafeVPN, as soon as the video starts to play it stops streaming to the TV screen.

Thought it was all the other programs however have now been told it is a DLM problem with all browsers except Chrome.

I tested it and Chrome is the only one that works.

Can FF fix the problem please?

It doesn't appear to be a Firefox issue per se but the VPN or AirParrot could be factors. I find no problems viewing videos on Netflix running Firefox 61.0.1 (64bit) under Win10.
Have you tried viewing the videos without the VPN and AirParrot running?

Can FF fix the problem please?

Netflix tries to detect if you are using a vpn in order to support region blocking. If it succeeds it will complain that you are using a unblocker or proxy . Nothing to do with what video codec is used. I also ran into similar problems with Amazon Prime Video, but it only occurred with certain movies.
