Unable to play video streams from vimeo, others in Firefox.

Posted

Error with Vimeo source: Player error The player is having trouble. We’ll have it back up and running as soon as possible. This video is either unavailable or not supported in this browser

Error from finewoodworking.com: Error Code: MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED Technical details : No compatible source was found for this media. Session ID: 2018-10-04:bc5f8e3bb5df654965dbea25 Player Element ID:myPlayerID

Running v 60.2.1esr (64-bit) "Mozilla Firefox for Red Hat Enterprise Linux" on Scientific Linux 7.5 (distro from Fermi Labs based on RHEL). All extensions and plugins are disabled (have tried enabled & disabled with same result).

Videos all run great on my Ubuntu 16.04LTS box with Firefox 62.0.3 (64-bit) "Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu" with the same plugins + "Shockwave Flash (Ask to Activate)."

Frustrating. Anyone have any ideas? TIA Ric

"media.wmf.enabled" setting does not exist. The others are as specified. The gstreamer ffmpeg plugins are installed. The Mozilla pages were not helpful.

Get the FFmpeg from in package manger on your Linux distro instead.

The gstreamer ffmpeg plugins are installed.

You need FFmpeg. Firefox has not used anything Gstreamer since 46.0 and later.

Got FFmpeg rpm package installed, (running a derivative of Red Hat, not Ubuntu) and the problem seems to be solved. Thanks to all.
