I just discovered that I can now Watch Videos in the browser.
This is a change because I used to not be able watch any videos in the browser.

I go to NFL website a lot, and for the first time I was able to watch the videos.
I'm looking forward to watching the games while being a passenger ;)

Edit: audio works too! But can't change title.

You should look into the youtube -> fullscreen browser trick, its much better than the dinky Tesla browser.
This is Amazon Prime Video via Twitch, Thursday Night Football.

I can watch video on browser while driving.
I was downvoted for sharing information, lol love the internet.
I think somebody maybe have hit the wrong icon. But thanks, I found it helpful!

Also, definitely does not work in drive. In fact as soon as you put the car in drive, video stops playing

launch youtube app. click on "manage google account". click on 9 dots for google apps, click google search. Wala. Full screen browser.

I can get to any site but some sites only support Chrome or Safari.

Is there a way to change the useragent on the Tesla Chromium browser?

I've got everything to work so far but Amazon Prime Video, natively. I think it has an HTML5 limitation.


Is it really the law?

In California, where I live, it is. Its been around since DVD players and flip-up LCD screens were popular.

Also - if you are a subscriber of YouTube TV - i discovered this is accessible through Tesla's new native Youtube app. It's a bit hidden and sometimes logs me out. But amazing!
