Error loading media file could not be played: Chrome, Safari
The error message ''Error loading media: File could not be played'' appears when you try to stream a video that can't be played. In general, this is either a temporary problem with the reader or a connection problem at your home.
If you receive the error message: 'Error loading media: file could not be played' when you attempt to stream a video, the following solutions may help. This should work for most browsers, including Chrome and Safari:
If you are connecting from a VPN, start by disconnecting and reconnecting from the VPN; then, try to access the video again. You can also try resetting your browser and cleaning your PC with CCleaner.
- If that still does not work, try disabling IPV6 in your network properties.
- If none of these solutions work, the video may have been removed from the streaming service, or the streaming service may be temporarily unavailable.
- If this is the case, you will have to look for another service or try to play your video a little later.
