This works for me. Please try a fresh profile and in case if it is working please check if you have  any of these settings changed: 

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2015-10-29 09:36:43 UTC
Also please test in safe mode ($firefox -safe-mode)

Comment 3 Eduardo Silva 2015-10-29 16:55:24 UTC
I tried both --safe-mode and a new profile, and the linked video above still doesn't play. Here's youtube player debug information:

Well, I can reproduce that. I can't also play that with upstream Mozilla binary.

Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2016-05-12 10:34:08 UTC
Please make sure you have ffmpeg-libs installed. Firefox removed support of gstreamer and moved do ffmpeg.
