cannot stream remotely via safari on Mac (works fine with Chrome)

I am a Flex Pass user and have set up remote streaming.

It works fine on my Mac Wirth Chrome and works fine on my iPad and iPhone.

However, when I use Safari, I get the never-ending circular loading icon after selecting my film to stream.

Does anyone have a clue why Safari specifically does this?


Plex v 3.9.0
OSX v 10.12.5
Safari v 10.1.1

    To clarify, this inly occurs on Safari when streaming over the internet - it works fine remotely and locally

    I know I can use the Mac app (which also works fine) so this is not critical, but it is strange.
