Dropping frames in sped up video playback ANDROID

more options

the tittle says it all , when i playback anything at more than 1x speed it drops alot frames very unwatchable , but this is on ANDROID not desktop ive literally found nothing when i looked this issue up except for pc . 0 info for android , this happens on both the regular and nightly build and i even tried to do some of the solutions for pc cause nightly has ability to add extensions like h264ify etc... , i tried messing with vp9 settings in about:config and with opengl media and i really tried alot of em lol but nothing works , still very stuttery

Hi

Please can you install Firefox for Android Nightly from the Google Play store (no need to sign into your Firefox Account and it will be separate from the Release copy of Firefox for Android).

Type about:config into the address bar and set media.android-media-codec.preferred to false. Does this make any difference to the video?
