Firefox cannot play media in these websites:

- Spotify Web: redirects me to https://support.spotify.com/us/using_spotify/system_settings/enable-the-spotify-web-player/ (DRM is already enabled)

- Twitch: error #4000

- Youtube: Some videos work, others give me the message "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available"

- Twitter: "The media could not be played"

Things i have tried:

Going into safe mode, unable hardware acceleration, setting media.me to true (already enabled). Nothing works. Would appreciate any help

It worked! "sudo apt-get install ffmpeg" solved my issue, thank you so much.
