Changed Steps to Reproduce
Changed Title from “Video not supported error on nydailynews.com when Flash is not enabled on the page” to “Video not supported error on nydailynews.com”
Edge team has investigated and see that nydailynews.com is trying to use HLS. HLS on desktop browsers is only supported by Edge and Safari (not Chrome).
If Flash is disabled in Safari on OS X, the video will fail in the same way. The failing downloads can be seen in the F12 Developer Tools console-- not found for akamaihd.net URLs.
We have outreached to nydailynews.com to take a look and fix issue.
