For example, I cannot play any videos on, a mainstream news site.

How can I know which video player controls this, to narrow down what is the problem, in order to fix it.

I found the problem myself. It had to do with flash player settings, Right click on video area, see local settings set to 0. Raise above 0 and it works.

Separate issue is that reports say setting above 0 allows the site to track you.
