Firefox blocking video players?

Ever since about a week ago, my Firefox just started... bugging. Twitch doesn't work, now Netflix doesn't work, basically anything that plays videos (except for YouTube) doesn't seem to be working.

On Twitch, if a person is live and streaming, upon clicking their stream to view it, it's suddenly offline, even if the chat is going and the "this person is live" notification is there. Netflix gives me a f7351 error. Websites with online media (like free movies on putlocker) have multiple streaming services attached and neither of them works.

I've cleared all cookies, cache, data and history.

This is only concerning Firefox, other web browsers work perfectly.

Extensions on my Firefox are as follows: BetterTTV, Dark Mode, DocsAfterDark, Facebook Container, FrankerFaceZ, I don't care about cookies, Instagram Dark Theme, New XKit, TinEye, Tumblr Saviour. No adblocks, no nothing.

My operating system is Windows 10, 64bit, Firefox is updated to 119.0.1.

Any help would be appreciated as this has been the bane of my existence for a while.

Install the Media Feature Pack if applicable.

Does it still happen in Troubleshoot Mode?

It does still happen in Troubleshoot Mode and the pack isn't available for installation, it's not on the list at all. Could this all be happening because I've still got Windows 10 instead of 11 ?

Does it still happen in a new profile? An easy way to test a new profile is to install Developer Edition and see if it happens there or refresh your existing profile.

Can you play videos that use the H264 codec in Windows Media Player?

Check your system integrity with sfc /scannow.
