Error playing file: Unknown Playback error

Hi,

 

I travel with Southwest very often and have never had any issues watching the free movies on my Microsoft Surface Pro running Windows 10.  Last week I started getting an error when trying to watch a movie.  See photo attached.  I tried both Chrome and IE and got the same error last week.  This week I am getting the same error again.  I have no issues playing movies on my Andriod phone, so its just not working on my computer (which I prefer to use with the bigger screen).  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also,  I tried deleting the brower cache and resetting the broswer to "default" and I still get the same error.  Also the video appears to start for about 1 or 2 secs and then the error appears.

This has happened the past two trips I've made including Sunday. Following hoping for a solution. I also have a Surface Pro.

I have the exact same problem. Chrome and IE suddenly stopped working. Unknow sources or Unknown Playback error. It worked flawlessly before, but now suddenly it doesn't work anymore. I can watch from phone though. Annoying.....

Exact same issue here on fairly new HP Elitebook x360 w/ Windows 10. Tried Chrome, IE and Edge. Works on Android phone. Thinking it's related to latest security push from MS?
