I am not able to play youtube livestream videos (including the videos that were streamed earlier). I am using Ubuntu 20.04.2 and firefox 87.0 (64-bit). I tried disabling all the extensions; but no luck. I am facing the same issue with BlueJeans also. Youtube displays - "Your browser can't play this video."

Make sure you have the latest FFmpeg and libavcodec packages installed.
