Does foxnews.com Hate Linux Users?

Filed under
Web

Try to view the Video page at foxnews.com from a Linux system using any browser and see what happens.

I see these results. The first is Firefox on Linux the second is Opera on Linux:

Up until recently there was no problem viewing video content on Fox News Video web pages. Apparently some Microsoft and Apple Only types have taken over the video content pages for Fox News. I for one would appreciate it if these large organizations would stop trying to pretend that Microsoft and Apple are the only games in town.

Not being able to watch Fox

Not being able to watch Fox Neocon News is more of a blessing than a discrimination.
Hope they'll never switch back to any sort of trans compatibility.

You can watch Fox News videos still...

All you have to do is install the User Agent Switcher plugin for Firefox. Then go to Tools/User Agent Switcher and select the Internet Explorer 7 (Windows Vista) agent. Your Fox News video will play now. Go Fox!!!

It's not just Fox News.

Every major television network seems to be switching to clients that don't support Linux.

Audio-Video Production On Linux: Best Software

Over the years, I've heard both Windows users and Linux enthusiasts make the claim that professional media production on Linux is impossible. While there may be some workflows so over-engineered that legacy software is a must, I firmly believe that, with effort, using Linux for media production is doable. In this article, I'll share application titles that can help make media production with Linux possible. The key thing to remember is that in order to be successful you will have to put forth some effort. Because some of the applications are quite complicated and require an education all their own.
