Don't get me started! I used to LOVE the Internet in its early days. Now it is just a tool that I wrestle with every single day and I have less and less inclination to have anything to do with it. Why am I even here? I promised to meet someone. Why am I at this particular site? I want to make a record of a few songs, so I can close tabs in a completely separate purpose-dedicated browser.

I can see NO video content on either of the pages you linked. Am I going to investigate it? No. Why? Because if I have blocked something, it is deemed to be undesirable in some way or another. I am NOT going to undo my own security just to see some web content. I'll either go elsewhere or do without.

The first link just included "Formula 1 2017: New car launches in pictures" - whether a video or a slideshow of some sort, no idea. It doesn't load in Linux nor in Android. I was just interested in what car would look like for next season. Like you not going to investigate, was just sayin ......

The second link just gave info :

Some of the interactive features on the BBC Sport website use technology made by a company called PlayBuzz.
