JW Player isn't streaming mp4 videos on in Opera

On this page after the ad loads, an mp4 video is supposed to play. This isn't working in Opera 49.0.2725.39 (PGO) 64-bit Windows 10. Opera fetches the video but it never plays in the player. JW Player (7.12.6) eventually gives "Error loading media: File could not be played". Works fine in Chrome and Firefox. In Vivaldi, the video fails to play like in Opera, but the player gives up right away and switches back to and ad.

The link to the mp4 is:[MP4%20MV%20360p].mp4


GET /downloads/1839/3/1838348-4455b47f/128/Romance%20-%20Nacho_%20Justin%20Quiles%20[MP4%20MV%20360p].mp4 HTTP/1.1

I thought maybe it was an issue with the mp4 being served as application/octet-stream where non-Chrome Chromium browsers like Opera and Vivadli aren't sniffing the file to see if they can play it. However, testing via local Apache with the mp4 served as application/octet-stream, the video loads no problem in Opera and Vivaldi.

Was hoping someone can figure out the cause.
