    Unfortunately as you can see the "Get more info" or "Learn More" links aren't always very helpful.
    I don't begin to understand the technical aspects of this but there are some sites and content that Google Chrome can open while other browsers cannot. This is particularly true with Safari (I have found) and sometimes Opera. When it comes to social media streaming content you are much better off using Chrome or Firefox.
    I have all four as well as Waterfox, Vivaldi and Brave.
    Having said that Vivaldi is very good nowadays but you may find its a bit too different in function and setup. Chrome and Firefox are, on the other hand, very similar to Opera in function.
    These days I am using Safari as my default and keep Firefox as my alternative for content Safari can't handle. When all those fail I try Chrome.

    Chrome has built in Flash. I suspect that what Ron is trying to view and gets an error may contain flash. There are streaming sites that won't work with Safari because Flash is turned off by default. When that happens, Chrome can usually show the video.

    I understood it was a java problem, but Chome stopped supporting it with v. 42 and later.

    Starting with Chrome version 42, Chrome has disabled the standard way in which browsers support plugins
    Mac OS X information for installing and using Java

    I also understood that youtube had also pretty well eliminated all Flash based videos and was using HTML5 or some such format.

    No. Flash is not provided with macOS by default. If you want flash, you have to install it. I don't recommend you do that, but if you decide to go ahead, make sure you get it directly from Adobe. There are lots of installers claiming to install Flash that are malware.

    By any chance did you “restart your router” yet? If you did, then the next logical explanation is “this video is unavailable”.
