I can no longer stream video from websites in firefox (v40.0.3), though they work with IE. Problem started abruptly last week. I am not aware of any changes, updates, or new software on my computer that may explain this issue. When I launch the video nothing happens and the cursor sort of flickers. How can I solve this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I've streamed videos from Amazon successfully on my desktop computer (Windows XP in use) until the latest version 47.0 of FireFox was installed. Now my videos will not play. I did all the things Amazon suggested: uninstalled and re-installed Silverlight, disabled it, etc. but still no luck. I do not want to have to use Chrome to watch my Amazon videos. Chrome works, but I'd like to stick with FireFox.

Please advise on what I can do to get my video streaming back on Amazon.

Thank you.

Hello,

sorry for the weird title, it's hard to explain for me. My problem occurs not only for my usual Firefox, it occurs even after a complete Firefox refresh, without any Addons or changings in the options. It's just the Firefox, IE and Opera don't have that problem. I have Win7.

I can play most movieclips (Streams) as intended. That means I can for example click the progress bar to an unbuffered point, the player skips to that location and I can watch from there.

That does not work with every clip. Some clips (it's always the same pages but I cannot give you an example here) don't work that way. I can skip to a later part, yes. But only if the player has already buffered to that point. If it's in the unbuffered part, I cannot jump there.

Any advice?

Somehow websites have figured out how to play audio even when the Flash object is blocked. This did not used to be the case and I only recently noticed they can sneak the audio through.

I have looked around other help sites but found no solution. I have a link of an example, below. Note: this link has audio that is particularly annoying and vacuous.

Specific you tube music live stream. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHW1oY26kxQ

This live stream crashes in FF always. Other similar types of live streams work just fine. This specific live stream works just fine in all other browsers. I have tested with add ons, without add ons, on windows, on Mac and they all crash on this specif live stream.

At this point I have no idea how to further try and resolve this besides use Chrome.

Hi I have a problem with my new bought hp pavillion 10-k000ng with windows 8 1. The camera is working just fine outside firefox, but using it for firefox hello is not working. No error message is shown, it only goes to a black image. I also do not get the media symbol beside the url field. I also tried other webpages for testing the webcam and on non it is working. Therefor, I think it must be a problem of firefox and not hello. Thank you very much for your help! cheers Evchen

I like to watch live youtube videos at work (live radio stations like ChilledCow) and it often crashes. Watching normal YouTube videos aren't a problem, but I will get error reports where I have to refresh the page often.

I've tried changing the hardware acceleration settings and the about.config [media.webm.enabled] settings to false. Any ideas? Thanks for your help

PC crashes when streaming video... but not on all sites

Hello,

Firefox is causing my entire PC to crash when I watch videos on Twitch or Picarto. This does not happen on Netflix, Youtube, or Prime Video, and it does not happen on other browsers. It also doesn't happen when I watch someone stream on Discord.

This crash is completely unique to Firefox. No other program in my library causes this.

The way it goes is, I'll be watching someone stream, the PC will lock up for 2-3 seconds (the sound also locks up), and then it reboots. No blue screen, no crash dump, and no crash report in Firefox either.

The crash can happen 30 minutes into watching, or 2 hours into watching. There's no rhyme or reason to it.

It can happen with no other tabs open, or twelve other tabs open.

I'm on Windows10, I have 16GB of RAM, my GPU is a 2060 Super, and my GPU is a Ryzen 7 1700X. Nothing is over or under clocked.

I've disabled hardware acceleration to see if it helps today, but in the meantime I'd really like to know if this is a known issue or a common problem.

The Doki Doki Live site won't load any live stream. I've tried Chrome, the old Edge, the new Edge and Brave. They all load everything with no problem, but that particular site on Firefox won't load up the live broadcasts, but will load a video there. I've refreshed the browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it and nothing works. I am using the latest version of 78.0.2

Unlike other posters who describe crashes while trying to stream Netflix due to Silverlight issues, the movies will in fact stream, but so slowly they are unwatchable. The audio keeps going but the video freezes and then skips. This has only begun to happen with the last 1 or 2 Firefox updates, and the last update is what has made Netflix unusable. I've spoken to Netflix tech support and their suggestion was to install Google Chrome and use it to stream Netflix. I will do this if I must, but would prefer Firefox if you folks can come up with a fix for this.
