I quite often have issues with playing newly posted NZ herald videos, for at least 3 or so months from memory.
eg, this one...
The play button is purple, I move the mouse over the video and it turns grey but when I click the play button nothing happens.
I double checked, and it is a similar issue in the MS edge browers, and same on a different PC too.
Anyway to fix this? (assuming that the issue is on my end)
