Videos on certain sites load green with sound

Posted

I seem to be having issues playing videos on FB, and Hulu and a few other sites. Netflix and youtube seem to be working fine. The video loads with the green screen showed below with the sound playing but no images shown. These other sites work on Safari. I have tried removing the hardware acceleration and it has not solved the issue. I have tried using Firefox in safe mode and with the plugins disabled. None of these solutions have worked. I even refreshed Firefox to its default settings, to no avail. Has anyone else tried or found something that does work?

If this is about the Firefox 67 beta version then you need to wait a few days (Tuesday) for the next beta. The current beta doesn't have this fix (beta gets an update twice a week).

Maybe consider cor-el's suggestion in the thread I linked to  ?

Hello McCoy,

   I had tried that bug report first but none of them fixed the issue. I am not running the beta version, but still tried the configuration walk through but those files did not exist.

Tried those threads and also no luck, even unistalled shockwave player, even though I only had one version in case, and it still plays green. Oddly it is not every site. Thanks for your added help so far, do you have any other suggestions I could try?
