Default Live stream won't load

I've really enjoyed the simplicity of livestream, as well as the familiarity most of the people I watch and stream with have with the procaster software, however starting a few weeks ago livestream would not load for me. It just keeps loading without showing the video. At first I thought it was something on your end since several people were affected at the same time, so I switched to other services in an attempt to wait it out. Since then the problem resolved itself for a lot of my friends, and I have been able to load the stream on my android phone.

First I tried to disable adblock, but it didn't seem to make any difference. I have a small list of servers blocked from the hosts file on all my machines, but its mostly to stop tracking software, 3rd party cookies, and various malicious stuff rather than ad servers.

Could you provide me with a list of addresses for anything that is required to play livestream, especially anything changed within the past month. That way I can check it against my hosts file and adblock list.

Also is there any other problem that I may have overlooked that could be causing this?

Are you able to play streams if you remove AdBlock?

Best,
Jason

I hadn't tried removing it completely up until now, only disabling it on the site.

Just tried removing it entirely, but it didn't seem to change anything.

On second thought I've previously tried it on chrome where I never had adblock installed and got the same results.
