Can't play video on Galaxy Tab 3 w/FF24

I have a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and FF 24. When I try to play a .mp4 video directly (pasting in the full path to the .mp4 file) nothing happens. I get no error messages, just a gray screen.

In addition, when I try to play the same video using jwplayer, when I click the play button, nothing happens.

The same video plays in FF24 on the Galaxy Tab 2, but the audio is choppy (video is perfect).

I can also play the same video in the Dolphin browser and Android browser on the Galaxy Tab 2 or 3, and Safari on the iPad with no issues.

Please try Firefox Beta. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an Intel device and we have an Intel specific build of Firefox in the Play Store as Firefox Beta.

We are looking to release the Android Intel version of Firefox shortly as a stable version.

Thanks for that information. I will look forward to the Intel version.

Good news - I tested FF25 beta on the Galaxy Tab 3 and the videos played.
