    I think Vivaldi and Chromium with Chrome plugins can play protected content. But ... if your computer is 32 bit, has it enough power to decode compressed stream realtime?

    I can watch YouTube videos streaming without pausing and waiting. I was chugging a bit with Windows XP so I figured that it would do better with Lubuntu being a lot more resource friendly.

    My computer specs are:

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7200 (4MB/2.00GHz/667MHz)
    Screen: 17 inch UltraSharp TrueLife WUXGA, 1920 x 1200.
    RAM: 2GB , DDR2, 533MHz memory.
    Hard drive: 120GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive.
    Video card: 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GO
    I have a subscription to HBO Go so just trying to stream the content. I would figure this this would be enough but it isn't.

    I checked everywhere and tried everything ... On XP, Firefox was slow and chugging but on Linux it just stays black .

    What's your excuse running 32 bit?

    Because I have a 32 bit processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo processor T2250 (1.73 GHz)

    My mistake,I copied the wrong CPU specs,the rest is the same.

    chrome doesn't support 32bit anymore.
    i hope you have better luck with other browsers.
    i'm generally a little sceptical about performance; those online streaming sites are pretty resource intensive, and your cpu really isn't much anymore these days, neither is the gpu...

    I tried Chromium with the proper plugin and still no go But I do like the browser since it's pretty much the same as Chrome which is my favorite browser. I like Lubuntu 16.04 LTS too having security updates once again is a nice thing to know. Lol

    I might be able to upgrade my processor to the Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 2.33 GHz socket M Processor.(64 Bit) I found a few online for about 20 bucks.
