videos wont play on android

more options

Attempting to play any video from any site and 3/4 of the video is covered with a grey block and the rest is scrambled. My device is SM-T217.

Others have had this issue with their specific devices and it appears to have been resolved for them. I would like Firefox to be able to play videos again on my device as well.

I recommend you clear the Android application to free up memory on the device.

  1. From the Android home screen, open the application library and select the Settings app (the cogwheel).
  2. Select Storage
  3. Select Cached Data, this will clear the cached data for all apps.

I hope that this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.

It did not help clearing storage cache. When I hold my finger down it gives me an option to open in app. It will work on some sites, and it goes to VLC video app, on a few sites, not all. But, on the OEM browser within the samsung it will play video.
