Anable to access site after update

Good afternoon, I found information that the media player had an update, after that the game does not start from the site where I usually play. Here where I read about update: https://community.roku.com/t5/Roku-Device-Features-Settings-Updates/Latest-Roku-Media-Player-update-..., here site where I play: https://1x-rate.com/, can you please fix it.

Roku doesn't have any control over 3rd party websites.

The web site you linked does not provide any media to stream. And RMP is not designed to play media from an external web site. It is solely to stream from a DLNA server located on your home network. I think you're attempting to spam this site.

I'm not spam. If you don't see on page Window with Game - reason really in site. Maybe I'm mistaken in how the game is played from the browser, I think from RMP, but the fact that Roku can play media from the Internet, including from sites - 100%

No, RMP cannot, and has never been able to play media from the Internet. There is one exception, in that it can access a URL from a playlist, assuming the URL goes directly to the media. The link you provided only takes you to the main web page, and RMP can do nothing with that.

Again, the web address has to be within a playlist for RMP to access anything from the web. It cannot do it any other way.

No, RMP cannot be used to watch a YouTube video. Notice that the URL does not link directly to a media file. RMP can only connect to a web site media link if the link goes straight to the media file itself. Otherwise RMP doesn't recognize it as a playable file. Also, RMP doesn't support most of the containers used for online media, such as FLV. The media must be in either a MKV, MOV, MP4 or TS container, or it will not play.
