I've been using Firefox for Android for quite long without problems. However, since one of the recent updates (not sure which one), I have a problem with sites with embedded videos (from youtube, for example). I guess it's the new media player that comes with Firefox. I have two problems:
- It stutters a lot, to the point it's unusable (I can't see the video).
- The pause icon doesn't disappear during the reproduction.
I didn't have this problem with the old player (which I guess it's the old known flash player). In fact, with others browsers in the same cell phone I don't have any problems playing videos.
I've searched around and I've found two solutions:
- First, set stagefright.disabled to true -> didn't change anything.
- Second, somewhere (here) I've read Firefox wasn't going to have any third party media players and that the solution would be to long tap and then select other app to play the video. That would be ok, but the long tap doesn't work for me. It appears a menu (like pressing the right button on a desktop firefox over a video) that is not clickable (or touchable) and that is not related to android (like would be a list of apps to open the video with).
I'd like to use the old player, so I'm looking for a way to disable this new player. If that's not possible, is there a way to fix the stuttering and the icon visibility?
I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S2, with rom CM 9.1 (Android 4.0.3) and Firefox and Flash are updated. I've uploaded a picture here http://postimg.org/image/pwhqjcfc3/ to show you how I see the video (with the pause icon visible). Could someone tell me if this is how you see the videos in Firefox too?
Thanks in advance!
