So, I reloaded the page and then got audio and video, though there was some stuttering (MacMini 1.5GHz) but more tweaking of the "Deblocking filter" allows better, more fluid/continuous - no/less stuttering, video/audio. However, on that page there is a second video of an interview of the driver, and it seems that once the first video/audio has been triggered it does not load up the audio or video for the second video without a complete reload of the page.

You've got to remember my comments were soon after v1.12's initial release, and after further "tweaking" I got some better performance out of it . . . and . . . a video actually played (which with v1.13 - v1.16 it doesn't) on formula1.com
That said . . . it seems that you've now got more features and more improvements along with other additions in v1.17 that with the HVC codec and Media Source playback I can now get the videos to run quite well on formula1.com
, and from what others have said they too have noticed significant improvements with media/video capabilities, so kudos to you and the others involved
in making this release such an improvement - big thanks
