Hi, Mozila Firefox team and Technical Support

Always experienced, the best browser "Firefox".

In Linux "RPM based", specially using Red Hat, Oracle Linux, Centos and may be in other distributions,

live streaming videos are not playing using YOUTUBE.

Firefox shows Error: "Your browser can't play this videos".

Note: In Ubuntu Linux, plays correctly no issue.

Most if not all Linux distro installs do not come installed with some proprietary packages due to license reasons and such.

Make sure you have packages like FFmpeg installed so you can fully support HTML5 players used by many sites for video, audio and games including Youtube as Flash Player is EOL since end of Dec 2020.
