I'm trying to watch videos in Firefox. Youtube works but Xvideos does not. Firefox pops up a window asking me:

>> "Opening xvideos"."com ###.mp4". >> which is: MP4 Video (16.4MB) >> from https://cdn77-vid.xvideos-cdn"."com >> >> What should Firefox do with this file?

My only choice is: Open with Windows Media Player x86 (default)

suggestions?

I'm running Windows 7 Firefox 76.0.1

Thanks!!!!

Does it help if you try the 32 bit Firefox version ?

I don't know why Firefox on your system doesn't seem to detect the Windows Media Foundation components needed to play MPEG-encoded video. Do you recall the last time it worked normally?

>> Just before I updated to 76.0.1.

Does it help if you try the 323 bit Firefox version ?

I'm guessing you mean 32-bit. Do I just download and let Firefox Setup do it's thing?

>> That did it. I've no idea why. Still pushing buttons but Yahoo mail, Youtube, movies all functioning. Help About now says 32-bit.

go figure.

Thanks to both of you!!!!

Install ffmpeg with shard libraries

typing ffmpeg in terminal the configuration should look like


configuration: --enable-gpl --enable-version3 --enable-nonfree --enable-shared --enable-gmp --enable-gnutls --enable-libgme --enable-gray --enable-libaom --enable-libass --enable-libdav1d --enable-libfdk-aac --enable-libfontconfig --enable-frei0r --enable-libfreetype --enable-libfribidi --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libpulse --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libopenh264 --enable-libopenjpeg --enable-librubberband --enable-libsoxr --enable-libspeex --enable-libtheora --enable-libvidstab --enable-libvorbis --enable-libopus --enable-libvpx --enable-libwebp --enable-libx264 --enable-libx265 --enable-libxvid --enable-libzimg --enable-opengl --enable-libzvbi --enable-libdrm --enable-libxml2 --enable-linux-perf --arch=x86_64 --enable-hardcoded-tables --enable-pic --extra-ldflags='-Wl,-Bsymbolic' --extra-cflags=-I/usr/local/cuda/include --extra-ldflags=-L/usr/local/cuda/lib64

How ever --enable-shared --extra-ldflags='-Wl,-Bsymbolic' are just enough to play mp4 content in firefox
