Tips: Manually changing DRM settings on watch.spectrum.net (Microsoft Edge)
I wanted to provide an update on a previous post I made regarding watch.spectrum.net but since the topic was closed, I can't reply to it. I have found out that the issue is watch.spectrum.net not recognizing the new Microsoft Edge browser as a chromium-based browser. The problem that is causing is the DRM requirements for watch.spectrum.net are not being implemented, hence the stream failing during or immediately after a commercial.
The fix was to manually change Edge DRM settings by going to edge://flags but it looks like Microsoft has implimented something in Edge that works around Spectrum's problem.
At my wits end with watch.spectrum.net

I am at my wits end with watch.spectrum.net. Whenever I am trying to watch TV and there is a commercial break, after the second commercial, the video just stops. I have to refresh the page, which brings me back to channel 1, then I have to switch back to the channel I was watching. When the next commercial break plays, I have to do this all over again. The website is unusable.
I am using the new Chromium based Microsoft Edge browser which is fully up to date. I have tried:
- Clearing cache and temporary files
- disabling my add blocker
- resetting the browser
- doing a factory reset on the computer
- rebooting my router, modem, and cable box
Spectrum support has been of no help either. I have this problem on multiple devices so I honestly don't think my computer or software is the problem.
Anyone have any ideas?
