BTW if you didn't recognise one of the extensions, do an AV and Malware scan. It could well have been put on your system by a 3rd party program without you knowing

It came with something I installed recently, It was bundled with Malware bytes!
There was an offer to add it, and I did.

I put Emsissoft browser security back on, and video loads fine.
