Drum roll - watch the video closely once I launch the address, and then I have captured a screenshot of the first page it goes to.
and the screenshot
The Distros I used were 'Impish Indri' GNOME that's Ubuntu 21.10 Desktop, since I figured Eddie would be on it, and 'Hirsute Hippo' Ubuntu 21.04, which I am retiring likely tomorrow since it has reached end of support.
Browsers used were Firefox latest and Waterfox latest on both Distros.
I would have been back sooner but it took a while to work out that my 'Impish Indri' was set up to launch under Wayland, which did not support the video player I was using without H264 codec, so I switched to Xorg and was OK.
So there IS a problem, which may be fatal for some and not for others.
In my case once I got to the usual screen, I had no trouble downloading the example of mplayer using wget.
