In this article, we will be discussing the ZEE5 error code HTML5.

This is a general HTML error code that shows up when there is a problem with the video file that you’re using or there might also be a problem with your browser. These are not the only issues behind this error code, there might be some other reasons too that we will discuss with the solutions in the next section.

Let’s get into the next section without any delay.


How to get rid of the ZEE5 error code HTML5?


We have already mentioned that this is a common error that shows up when there’s a problem with the video playback on the browser. There might also be a specific problem with the video file that you are trying to play.

There are many reasons that this error code can show up and we will discuss all of them separately so that you can have a clear idea of what solution to use in what situation.

Fix 1: Make sure that your web browser is updated to the latest version.

If you’re using the platform through the web browser, then you need to make sure that the web browser is updated to the latest version.

This is because ZEE5 launches new shows and features every single day, and if you are not updating your web browser to the latest version, then you might be dealing with incompatibility issues on your browser and the platform.

When you face this error code then look for the latest versions of your web browser update. If you find a newer version then install it. Relaunch the browser and see if this issue goes away.


Fix 2: Clear the cookies and cache data on your web browser

When you enter the username and password every single time that you launch ZEE5, it can become a little infuriating.

It is not only about the credentials but also the other information that needs to be re-entered every time you launch the platform. This is very temporary. Files in the form of cookies and caches are stored on your web browser. These files have to store the information that you re-enter on the platform each time you log in.

However, many users are not aware that they need to regularly clean this cache and cookies data from their web browser to have uninterrupted functionality.

If this is not done, not only will your device memory be full, but it will also cause issues with corrupt files. 

Launch the settings on the web browser and clear the cookies and cache data. No. Relaunch the web browser and try to log in to ZEE5 again.


Fix 3: Switch to a different web browser

There are certain issues with your web browser that can lead to incompatibility with the platform.

The most common issue is that your web browser is not suitable for running the platform. This can happen when you’re using an unconventional web browser that does not have the functionality to support all the platforms online. 

To get rid of this issue in an easy manner, you can switch to a different web browser. This will not solve the issue with the previous browser but will get rid of the issue that you’re facing on the platform for the time being.


Fix 4: Take a look at your Internet connection speed and stability

If you are streaming content on the Internet, we do not need to tell you that your Internet connection speed and stability need to be impeccable.

If the connection is not stable, you will not be able to maintain a connection to the server, which means that the data from the server will not be downloaded onto your device, hence you will face video playback issues.

Google the Internet speed meter and run a test for your current network connection. When you receive a report about the upload and download speed of their connection, check if it is appropriate for streaming content online.

If it is not the case, then talk to your Internet service provider to help you with the issue.


Fix 5: Check if the ZEE5 server is down

You need to make sure that the ZEE5 server is up and running when you were trying to play your video.

If the server has crashed due to traffic congestion, then you will not be able to maintain a connection to the server to download any video content that you are trying to stream. This is an issue on the part of the developmental team and there is nothing that you can do to get rid of this issue.

You need to wait it out and come back later. To find out if the server is down or not, you can Google down detector. On the search bar, type the name of the platform and run a test. You will now see a real-time report about the outages of the platform in different regions. 

If the server is down in your region, there is nothing that you can do except wait.


Fix 6: Restart the device that you are using

The computer that you are using for this streaming session can be the problem behind the error code showing up.

This is because there are many technical errors that show up on the device due to too many background processes clashing with each other. If you do not have enough free space on the device’s hard disc then also this issue can show up. 

To get rid of the minor issues on the device that you’re using, you can try a power cycling session on the device. 

This is also called restart in simple terms. After you restart the device, then relaunched the platform and play the video that you were trying to play. Check if this solves your issue.


Fix 7: Switch to a different device

Just like the web browser, sometimes there are issues that you cannot solve on the device. In this case, even if you power cycle the device or restart it, you will not be able to get rid of the issue and you will just need to switch to a different device. 

This will not solve any issues on the previous device that you were using but it is a workaround that will help you to access the platform.

When you do not have time to get rid of the issue, then you can try this fix.


Fix 8: Contact the ZEE5 support team
