No video playback
Same problem again with upgrade. After the last upgrade today 9-5-2022 I no longer have video play back on sites such as MSNBC, CNN or Twitter. U-Tube seems to be working fine. I have checked and have version 5.0.1 of ffmpg installed if that helps. And I have turned off ad blockers. Firefox 104.0.1 in Fedora 36 workstation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob.
I did a "sudo dnf remove libswscale-free libavcodec-free" and now video is working in Firefox. I am not sure why this worked. Maybe someone can explain why? However video is still not working in Gnome WEB browser. Is there a forum for Gnome applications?Diese Antwort im Kontext lesen 👍 1

Can you provide screenshots and links to the pages giving you issues?
Here are three screenshots two of the sites and one of the Console.
Make sure you have the latest FFmpeg and libavcodec packages installed.
5.0.1 of ffmpg. How do I check libavcodec?
ffmpeg -version and see screenshot. Did you ever try Firefox in Safe Mode? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/diagnose-firefox-issues-using-troubleshoot-mode#w_how-to-start-firefox-in-4troubleshoot-modesf5safe-modesf

As stated Fedora 36 using Wayland , Firefox 104.0.1. The problem still exists opening Firefox in Safe Mode. (troubleshoot mode)
I have tried the Gnome WEB browser and have the same problem. So it seems it is not Firefox specific?

Good work. Mark it as resolved.
Solved for Firefox but not Gnome WEB browser.
