Firefox Nightly Video Playback on Fedora 33

I've installed Nightly the same way I have for years on my latest Fedora 33 install—i.e., download tarball, extract into /opt, set appropriate chmod and chown, make .desktop file, etc.—but certain videos certain videos on certain sites refuse to play. A Fedora discussion discussion led me to think it's how Fedora 33 may sandbox apps; I haven't yet had any hits on solutions in the Fedora groups, so I thought I'd ask here, since I can't be the only one with this issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Make sure you have the latest FFmpeg and libavcodec packages installed.

You can also check the Web Console for possible messages.

It works for me. Have you tried it in safe mode. I just downloaded Nightly, extracted it, made a shortcut on my desktop. Do you have any issues with YouTube? KDE or Gnome?

Thanks for checking in, @jonzn4SUSE...

I have tried it in safe mode, without success; YouTube plays just fine, as do several other sites. No love for TED and a few others.

I really wonder if this is due to some of Fedora's sandboxing features; e.g., openH264 is installed as a flatpak, although that shouldn't matter as Nightly seems to ship with it's own openH264.

KDE or Gnome. Does it work in the distro current version of Firefox?

Sorry, I meant to include it was GNOME.

The distro version (84.0.1-2.fc33) works fine.

Interesting... Maybe try downloading it again and just extract and run it. Can you also post a screenshot of the issue?

Yeah, looking like more of a Gnome / Ubuntu issue. Just for kicks, if you feel like testing... switch to KDE and see what happens.

It can't be an Ubuntu issue, since I'm on Fedora, and I'm not sure being on GNOME would make any difference; however, I'm becoming more and more convinced it's a quirk of Fedora's new sandboxing.

Thanks, anyway, @jonzn4SUSE...

No worries... It's extra-comical to me because I started my Linux journey with Ubuntu (back in the good ol' Warty days) and used it up until about two or three years ago. :-)

Didn't even think to check libavcodec, @cor-el, and that was it; installing "GStreamer Multimedia Codecs - libav" fixed things.

Thanks a ton!
