imdb.com - no video

Unread post by ivanbuto » 2023-12-09, 21:28

No videos seem to play recently on imdb.com.

Only audio plays, but the video is not visible.

I am experiencing the same behavior on the live broadcast of the ČT24 channel (Czech television):
https://ct24.ceskatelevize.cz/#live

Using the latest version of Pale Moon on Windows 7 x64. The same behavior is with Firefox 88 (will also try with 115 ESR on a different machine; I am assuming it works OK there).

As to the ct24.ceskatelevize.cz,
probably the CSS "aspect-ratio" is not working.
You can try userContent.css to fix problem:

Code: Select all

@-moz-document url-prefix(https://ct24.ceskatelevize.cz/) {
  div.live__player.video { 
    height: 360px !important;
  }
  div.live__player.video iframe {
    width: 640px !important;
    height: 360px !important;
  }
}
For the imdb.com:

Code: Select all

@-moz-document url-prefix(https://www.imdb.com/) {
  div[data-testid="video-aspect-ratio"] { 
    height: 360px !important;
  }
}

Thanks for the help!
It's been a long time since I actively worked with (much simpler) HTML and CSS... examined both websites with the web developer tools inspector. Not easy for me to decipher what exactly is going on.
In the case of imdb.com, it seems the "aspect-ratio" CSS property is not used. What seems to be the problem there that causes the element to display with zero height? I couldn't find where "video-aspect-ratio" is defined in the various CSS files.

It is used, but the rule is not displayed in Pale Moon.

@media screen and (min-width: 600px)
.gLmNql {
aspect-ratio: 1.77778 / 1;
}
