Ghostery Dawn is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page

When trying to stream from Hulu, HBOMax, or Netflix, a banner appears stating

Ghostery Dawn is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later.

However, I can stream just fine. What is the purpose of the banner?

I’m having the same problem. For me, I can’t watch videos from the sites I get this on, I have to use another browser for them. Sites like disneyplus, paramountplus, peacocktv. Strange thing is all these sites worked fine before now I can’t watch any streams from them. I even disabled all the add-ons, still get the same thing. I was even thinking about uninstalling ghostey dawn and canceling my Ghostery plus. what’s the point of having it if I have to use another browser to watch streams on these sites.
