Do what? I don't follow.
Comment 2 lejeczek 2015-10-19 03:40:23 EDT
for Firefox to be able to playback youtube (similarly other html5) video. Version I reported does not do that.
Comment 3 lejeczek 2015-10-19 03:43:54 EDT
is it vp9 (and newer) problem? Is it only vpX problem?
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2015-10-19 04:00:56 EDT
Please post a link to broken a video on youtube.
Comment 5 lejeczek 2015-10-19 04:03:21 EDT
having relevant booleans set (which are not by default) so - https://www.youtube.com/html5 - reports OK for all types I still cannot watch, eg:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPagHDfTFmo (which is vp9)
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2015-10-21 04:35:46 EDT
That video works for me. A stock Fedora Firefox 41.0.2 without any plugins. Also GMP plugin is disabled.
Comment 7 lejeczek 2015-10-21 06:07:14 EDT
seems like my bad, add-on "YouTube ALL HTML5" brakes it all for me. Now disabled and vpx works.
