I couldn't get the crash data at all. But I managed to get this from the Terminal;

[Child 10502, MediaDecoderStateMachine #4] WARNING: Decoder=7f0fd7cf1400 Decode error: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) - RefPtr<mozilla::MozPromise<RefPtr&lt;mozilla::MediaTrackDemuxer::SamplesHolder&gt;, mozilla::MediaResult, true&gt; &gt; mozilla::MediaSourceTrackDemuxer::DoGetSamples(int32_t): manager is detached.: file ./dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachine.cpp, line 3470 Exiting due to channel error.
