Thanks... please see below. The google chrome screen seems fixed and frozen and remains that way for ever (I stopped waiting after 10+minutes). The MS Edge screen shows the normal and expected video and its playback controls.
Let's stick to this list of filters turned on (English Filter, Spyware Filter, Social media filter, Annoyances filter) and please check problem page in incognito mode in chrome. Also what chrome version do you use?
Yes, Adguard symbol shows on the page, if that's what you mean by assistant. Disabled Adguard service, Chrome web plugin and all filters and filtering in Adguard settings panel. No dice, still can't play these videos in chrome.
Maybe the problem is not with Adguard after all, since videos play fine using MS Edge with Adguard running.
Is there ANYONE running AG just fine in using the latest google chrome browser with its chrome plug-in and windows service both running on Windows 10 AND can play these videos at http://www.cnn.com/videos ?
