Hi, I watch specific streaming live show on YouTube every week. Unfortunately, I always have to play it in non-Firefox browser, because the video freezes every couple minutes, while audio track is still playing in the background. Based on the comments from the stream chat, other people have this issue too. Why? How to fix it? It is annoying. Internet connection is ok. Other browsers no issue. OS Linux Mint 20 Ulyana 64-bit Kernel Linux 5.4.0-172-generic x86_64 MATE 1.24.0 Mozilla Firefox 123.0 (64-bit)

Linux Mint 20 from 27 June 2020 Looks like it's time to upgrade. What graphics card and driver are you running? What version of ffmpeg are you running? Here is what I have, not sure what's current for your distro. X11 or Wayland?


Operating System: openSUSE Leap 15.6 KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.10 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.114.0 Qt Version: 5.15.12 Kernel Version: 6.4.0-150600.8-default (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 16 × AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850HS with Radeon Graphics Memory: 62.1 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: AMD Radeon Graphics Manufacturer: HP Product Name: HP EliteBook 865 16 inch G9 Notebook PC

What graphics card and driver are you running?

Graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M Driver is nvidia-driver-535 (recommended) Version 535.161.07-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 There are others to choose from, one of which is Open Source. Next time perhaps I try to switch and will see if it solves the issue. I know I was switching between those drivers in the past because of some other video playback issues.

You should boot to a live usb stick running the current OS, download the current version of Firefox and test. Also try the same on a VM if you have something installed.

Try installing the flatpak version along with the associated ffmpeg runtime:

flatpak install org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full//23.08

Next stream (I guess in a week) I will try running live USB with newest Mint and Firefox and see if it freezes again. Also will try switch to different graphics driver. Not sure what is flatpak and how to use it. I will study and use it as last resort. I will keep you updated. Thanks.

I have tried to watch the streaming YouTube video on live USB of linuxmint-21.3-mate-64bit.iso in Firefox but the video freezes there too. Selecting Open Source graphics driver instead of Nvidia driver also did. Then I booted Windows 10 with Firefox and it seems there is no issue with the video.

Linux ISOs usually don't come with proprietary codecs preinstalled. For Linux Mint you need to run:

sudo apt install mint-meta-codecs
