DRM content won't play

After installing the DRM content through the browser I still cannot play any videos on Netflix or Udemy.

I have run this website (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/sumo/html5-video.html) from previous answers to check and the results are attached to the question.

I have also checked media.eme.enabled and it is set to true.

I am very much puzzled by this.

Hey! I ended up running this:

sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras

solution found here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1193012/ubuntu-19-10-firefox-cant-play-drm-content

which solved the problem. The command would not run at first which is why I thought I had to check with other community members.

Thank you for your quick response though!!!
