It plays just fine on my old iPad Mini2

I had a recent problem with Netflix which was cured by a couple of entries in the about config file. Is this also fixable like that?

Thank you, Ken

If Basilisk ever gets its DRM-support functional again like it was before, would the kind of video that KC013 linked to work in Basilisk?
