    This is one of the cases where sharing on Twitter is the best course of action. Unlikely they'll get kicked into gear otherwise.

    But did it work?

    If you can't play it with a media player of your choosing, you don't have anything.

    I had a somewhat similar experience three years ago. It's amazing how they have never fixed the issue.

    I've got a solution for you: don't stream from a laptop or anything of the sort. Either use a smartphone + Chromecast combinaton or buy a smart TV.

    There's no other way.

    Don't worry, you're not alone -

    half the open-source ecosystem is trying to find a way to remove the M1 chip to get their code working again.

    @sardigarmi44 not really a solution is it?

    Now I need to uninstall the M1 chip? Wtf?

    @bashleigh stop being a fanboy and uninstall that m1 chip already. Processors are sooo 2015, everyone uses cloud computing nowadays. Also you might consider downloading more ram while uninstalling it.

    @bashleigh
    ..... They suggested you do a factory reset for your mac?

    Kick those idiots into orbit around the sun. Also - insist they escalate to a Manager bc you want all of your money back.
    Or use an android VM.

    @magicMirror It's a classic flowchart response from unskilled tech support guys. "Factory reset it" is annoying enough that it gets rid of people for a while, while they can do no actual work to solve the problem.

    This is why I torrent

    This came to mind the other day. I wonder if you could genuinely sue them for replacement hardware if you *actually* destroyed your Mac by trying to remove the physical M1 chip.

    I mean, they are directly advising it after all.

    @AlmondSauce In the USA usually not. You have to prove that a legal entity had an obligation to you, a duty of care. For example, you’re paying a company to repair your laptop and it explodes they’re responsible; if you visit my blog and your laptop explodes due to high CPU usage it’s not my responsibility. Your mileage may vary in other countries.

    @magicMirror and send the Laptop afterwards back to them and ask for your money.
