    I tried that site from your link. No videos would play until I saw a message at the top of the window to accept cookies. Clicked "accept" or "agree", or whatever the message said. Then the video started to play.
    (At least I THINK it asked to accept cookies. I don't read much Italian without my slow translation, but it looked like a typical "You have to agree to accept cookies before you can view media on this site" or something very close to that.)
    I hope that will help you.

    Thanks Delta, but I don't have any window at the top

    Also I just noticed the same issue is present on Firefox

    EDIT: I'm closer to finding the issue, seems like some resources can't be opened from my Mac "impossible to open the page"

    but when I try on my iPhone it opens correctly

    So I guess something is blocking access to those sites

    This link for example

    Like I said, I could only see still images on that page, until I tried to view the resources on the image (right-click, and choose "Inspect Element"). The message appeared after I did that a couple of times on different images on that site.
    I clicked the button, something like "accept", but in Italian - and the videos worked after that.

    Modifying my hosts file I was able to access that link

    But still I can't play videos

    Found the culprit, it was a modified hosts file I was using

    Now everything's ok

    Yes, videos didn't play for me until I could click on the button in the message (through the Inspect Element)
    Did you try that? I recall the message didn't appear until I did the Inspect Elements a couple times...

    If not, maybe your host file is messed up now. I don't know what to tell you about that...
