why wont firefox play video on pbs.org mobile site?


Using an mk808 with android 4.1.1. when i click to play a video on the pbs.org mobile website firefox begins to open video but crashes each time. Videos are usually in the m4v format. Is there a fix or patch?

Hi nipomo_man23

Sorry to hear that. I don't have a device like the MK808 but this is surprising because all of my Android 4.1 and 4.2 phones and tablets play pbs.org videos fine.

e.g. http://m.video.pbs.org/video/2365001702/

Could you please test that video and give us a sample URL of a' non working video?

Finally if you are technical I suggest filing a bug at : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ and letting us know the URL of the bug

(and of course if you aren't technical, let me know and I can go ahead and file a bug for you).
