I have tried numerous times to play Vimeo videos in Pale Moon.
I'm one of two people I know of who use Pale Moon as a browser. It plays Vimeo videos perfectly in one computer but not mine. This rules out the browser and draws attention to what must be a setting in my computer.
How do I get Vimeo videos to play in any browser Other than in Internet Explorer?
I've read numerous comments online from people who can't play Vimeo files, both Vimeo and Browser issues, but the results vary as to whether people succeed in the end or not, and the solutions I've followed haven't worked for me personally.
I’ve delved around online to try to find a solution, but all to no avail, including following the suggestions posted to other people to adjust settings in About:Config. On my computer, all my dom.ipc.plugins settings are set to “True” except for Java. I briefly changed the Java setting to “True” but the Vimeo playback issue was no different. For some reason Internet Explorer plays the files fine, so something must be activated in that browser which is inactive in my everyday browser, but I prefer to use any browser but IE for optimum security and have only visited IE temporarily to compare the results of Vimeo. I don’t want to be reliant upon using IE as a general thing to view Vimeo which I’m keen to revisit, but I don’t know which setting(s) on my computer is/are stopping Vimeo from working to enable them to work through Pale Moon on My computer.
When I click on a file the video first appears as a still, which is correct, as it’s displaying what the video should play.
I then click on the Play button, a blue horizontal scroll bar moves rapidly from left to right, the video window drops down to the bottom of the screen and the screen turns black.
I then click on HD mode when a now light grey horizontal dotted scroll bar appears instantly followed by a standard horizontal scroll bar gradually moving from left to right.
After that I click on the Play button, a blue horizontal scroll bar appears.
If I start off in HD mode and click on the Play button, a blue scroll bar moves from left to right and the video window drops down to the bottom of the screen before turning black.
Youtube files always play fine, but lately I’ve sometimes had to refresh the page to get them to work.
Here’s a Vimeo file as an example, but unfortunately the same issue applies to any Vimeo files, irrespective of television programme, music, etc:
