can't stream videos from browser

Post by greenteaphil » Fri Dec 08, 2017 6:42 am

Hi,

I've just installed mint 18.3 sylvia and I've tried to stream videos from websites using mozilla and chromium. I click on them but nothing happens.
any ideas?

Thanks
Phil

putlockers uses a bitcoin miner from coinhive.com >>> DO NOT USE THIS SITE
a bitcoin miner site uses your own cpu against you to collect and mine bitcoins, which causes the cpu to be HIGH usage.

most likely it doesn't work because you have some adblockers that block all misleading scripts which is a good thing
