Everything worked normally for me for 2 years, but recently i decided to reinstall windows. So i did it, downloaded firefox on raw system and now i get this error on some youtube videos. I tried everything i could find but nothing fixed this issue. It pops up with firefox account, without it, in private vindows, in regular ones, with addons, without them. I tried reinstalling firefox, i updated every driver, i use google DNS, but it still doesnt work. In edge, chrome etc. theese videos play fine

YouTube usually provides multiple different encodings for its videos, but occasionally, only one encoding is available that is not natively supported in Firefox. In case your version of Windows does not automatically come with media components, you may need to install them. See: Fix video and audio problems on Firefox for Windows N editions.
