[SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

Hello!

As some of you may already know i am currently playing around with a stretch/sid version of bunsenlabs and (diregarding some minor gui issues) everything works better than expected.
Now some video streaming sites keep telling me that my ff is not capable of playing html5 video streams.
Has anybody else experienced this difficulties too and can tell me what to do about it?

I am using html5-video-everywhere Plugin but the problem reoccurs whether it is activated or not.
Furthermore I`ve got Shockwave Flash 23.0 d0 and OpenH264-Videocodec running (if this is of any interest...)

Thanks in advance!

Interesting:

Your browser scores 422 out of 555 points
You are using Firefox 45.0 on Linux

I had no idea that I have html5 available.  smile

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

How come I get 444 points with the same browser?

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

Maybe because of another extension you have installed?  At a loss about this I have no html5 stuff installed to the best of my knowledge.

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

I don't think any extension or anything installed besides the browser should change the results (perhaps some video codecs ...). Can you click on 'save results' and share the link?

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

With 45, I think it depends on what gstreamer 1.0 (not 0.10) packages are installed; also maybe what some of the settings in about:config have been changed to. There has been some issues with Pale Moon playback for their own packages with gstreamer 1.0 on recent Ubuntu releases; thus they switched back to 0.10 for their packages. Both Firefox and Pale Moon are planning to directly use ffmpeg for playback in the future to avoid these gstreamer problems.

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

Nah, diff:

Beacon
WebRTC 1.0
Data channel

and no idea what are those.
P.s. yeah, could be something in about:config.

Naik, your version of Firefox should support HTML5 playback out of the box with no extensions enabled.

Try a fresh profile or remove all of your extensions and test YouTube support here:

https://www.youtube.com/html5?gl=GB

For the record, the stock version of firefox-esr available in BunsenLabs also supports HTML5 playback with no modifications, it even works on the live ISO with iceweasel...

EDIT: please also post the output of:

firefox -version

There is no version 49 of firefox-esr...

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

so here we go:

rSsTwFLz.jpg

The version is 49 without esr. I don`t know what drove me to write this. sorry!

if i run a new profil the output of html5test looks like this:

fKf0DhXH.jpg

Anyway, i have to admit that youtube and other sites are playing well and that there is only this streaming site that tells me it wouldn`t work. Are they wrong maybe?

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

You are missing h.264 support, dunno if this (and what stevep wrote) is still relevant. (youtube plays well because it serves vp8/9 version of video i guess)

p.s. For testing, get some mp4 file on local hard-drive, so it is drop-able to the browser. example:
youtube-dl -f 136 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceX18O9pvLs

I did so, but if i drop the file into the browser he only asks me whether to open it with VLC or save it to hard-disk.

Gstreamer stuff makes any difference?

It may be a DRM issue, I would recommend trying the PPAPI player instead, either via Google Chrome, Chromium or the Freshplayer wrapper script, in decreasing order of likely efficacy.

EDIT: More information from Mozilla on DRM issues:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm

Also, an RFP for the needed software:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=757772

Which helpfully points out that Arch has a PKGBUILD that could be co-opted to a Debian system:

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

Firefox 49 will now ask to download and install the widevide plugins in your user folder the first time you visit a site that needs them, such as Netflix, so we don't have to worry about a package for those any longer. Those are for HTML5 DRM, though, not Flash.  I don't know if Adobe has added DRM to their 24 series PPAPI and NPAPI Flash releases on Linux yet, the last I heard, no--we still have to use the 11.2.XXX plugin combined with libhal1-flash.

That was the situation last month when I was trying to watch a free baseball game of the day on mlb.com.  Pepperflash wouldn't work on Chrome or in Firefox, so I had to use 11.2+libhal1-flash.   

I also believe that gstreamer1.0-libav may be necessary for h.264 playback, or it may be in the "bad" plugin package for 1.0.  Try both.

gstreamer1.0-libav--->

Package: gstreamer1.0-libav
Source: gst-libav1.0
Version: 1.10.0-1

had allready been installed.


I somehow realized that my nvidia-legacy-304.XXX driver had been in conflict with nvidia-libvdpau and thus libvdpau.so.1.0 was not to be found until i realized that a version of it had been left inside $HOME/.config/steam/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/.. and copied it over to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/. I was anxious about the compatibility at first but everything works fine now.
Though this will most definitely not work for most other users (especially those who keep their system clean), it worked for me and so i will mark this thread as solved.

Re: [SOLVED] no html5 video streaming on FF49

the fix was to provide ff with a recent version of libvdpau.so.1.0. Since my knowledge is far from enabling me to find/build one on my own, i was lucky to find one living in /home/$USER/... being a leftover from some previously removed steam installation.
