Can't play videos from YouTube or Twitch
Using arch's latest version. I recently upgraded my firefox version to 117.0, and can't play any videos from different sources.
The image freezes and is in an eternal buffering state.
I tried downgrading to 116.0 and 115.0, and the issue persists, so it doesn't seem to be related to the latest Firefox version.
So far, I've confirmed the same issue in YouTube and Twitch.
On Twitch, the videos are super laggy. The image freezes, then moves to a different scene, freezes again, and then the same thing over and over.
On YouTube, it always shows as loading. If I try to move it to play a different time in the video, it works for half a second and then freezes again.
The issue still occurs if I try incognito mode, troubleshoot mode and refreshing Firefox. I already tried disabling hardware acceleration (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1206076) and have no more ideas or options.
Thanks in advance!

Nevermind, it was an issue with my arch installation, and the same problem occurred in other browsers. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=276311 fixed it for me.
