    "Playback Error" "Unable to Start Playback" on LinuxMint 19.3 Chrome Web Browser

    When trying to play videos on VUDU I am getting a message of "Playback Error, Unable to Start Playback" The only option I am given is to select the "Exit" tab provide just below the text. After selecting a film it played all three advertisements but would not play the film afterward. So it can play commercials but not films? There's also no option to start the film over like on Roku. I tried playing a film I already own and got the same result. Is there another web browser you could use? Chromium maybe? I tried Firefox and got the exact same result. My apologies if it's already been mentioned but is there a certain processor requirement for desktops and laptops?

        Why does Vudu need to "Support" Linux? Please enlighten me.... If the browser is supported and codecs installed there shouldn't be a problem...

          Not only can I play the commercials, but I can also play the trailers, so Vudu DOES support Linux playback,just not the actual content.
          I've tried Ubuntu and a new install of Kubuntu, both Firefox and Chrome.

            Trailers and ads are not encrypted - it's a DRM issue.
