Firefox 53.0.3, 32 bit (Windows 10 Home 1703 on this Surface 3 tablet I'm testing on) gives the warning on the Devices page and will not play a live stream. However, recorded sessions on the Library page will play.

Chrome 59.0.3071.86, 32 bit acts the same unless I add to the whitelist on chrome://settings/content
