    Can't play Foxnews videos ?

    When I go to the Fox News page and click on a video (akamai) all it does is load forever.
    I tried turning off Ghostery but it doesn't help.

    Suggestions?
    Thanks

    You may need to turn off enhanced tracking protection. That works for me.

    I turned that off and it didn't help, then I paused Ghostery and it works!
    Now I just need to figure out how to suspend Ghostery for just this site and just videos.
    Thanks for saving me again.

    You'll find that many sites are going to have the same issue. YT started showing problems two weeks ago after Googles announcement about ads. The page would load, the screen would blink and produce an error. Reload the page and it was fine. It happened every single time, 100% repeatable on different OS's and browsers. Then they stopped forcing that and it was fixed. But companies that rely on tracking for other more normal reasons - you'll find videos wont load. I use a specific browser to watch Maria Bartiromo because of the same problem you stated.
