I'm encountering consistent video playback issues on Firefox while running Fedora 38. The error message I receive when attempting to play videos from certain sites, notably LinkedIn and Twitter (now X), is:

  • The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.*

Furthermore, when examining Firefox's console while attempting to play a video, I observed the following error:

  • [Child 5999, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: Decoder=7fdb3c55a100 Decode error: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) - mozilla::MediaResult mozilla::FFmpegDataDecoder<60>::InitDecoder(AVDictionary**): Couldn't open avcodec: file /builddir/build/BUILD/firefox-118.0/dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachineBase.cpp:166*

Steps to Reproduce: 1. Navigate to LinkedIn or X (previously Twitter). 2. Attempt to play any video content. 3. Observe the aforementioned error.

Additional Details: - OS: Fedora 38 - Firefox version: Initially 117.0.1, then updated to 118, both 64-bit. - This issue does not occur on Google Chrome on the same system. - I have attempted the following troubleshooting steps without success:

 1. Updated Firefox to the latest version.
 2. Enabled DRM content.
 3. Booted Firefox in Safe Mode.
 4. Disabled hardware acceleration.
 5. Cleared cache and cookies.
 6. Used a Flatpak version of Firefox.

This issue has significantly impacted my user experience, and I hope to find a resolution soon. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Make sure you have the latest FFmpeg and libavcodec packages installed.

RPM Fusion repo:

sudo dnf install ffmpeg


Flatpak:

flatpak install org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full

I have exactly the same problem, using the environment:

  • Fedora 38
  • Firefox 117.0.1 stable, Flatpak version

I can't open videos from my Synology Photos. Looking at the console, I get the following error: ``` Media resource https://<my_nas_server>/123 could not be decoded, error: Error Code: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) Details: mozilla::MediaResult mozilla::FFmpegDataDecoder<60>::InitDecoder(): Couldn't open avcodec ```

And I already have the `ffmpeg` DNF package and the `org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full` version 23.08 flatpak.

Note: Testing here, the `ungoogled-chromium` flatpak works just fine. My guess is that Firefox (flatpak version) have some misconfiguration related other flatpak dependencies, like the `org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full`.

`org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full` version 23.08 flatpak.

The Firefox flatpak currently uses the 22.08 runtime, so you will need to install the corresponding version of org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full.

@zeroknight thanks for the answer.

I just tried. I restarted the browser and it didn't work.

Can you play the same videos in a non-flatpak installation?

@zeroknight yep. It works just fine, despite the following warns:

``` [Child 156982, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: 7f101e2ae3a0 OpenCubeb() failed to init cubeb: file /builddir/build/BUILD/firefox-118.0.1/dom/media/AudioStream.cpp:281 [Child 156982, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: Decoder=7f0e0162e000 [OnMediaSinkAudioError]: file /builddir/build/BUILD/firefox-118.0.1/dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachine.cpp:4649 ```

- Mozilla Firefox 118.0.1 (installed via dnf)
