Running v 60.2.1esr (64-bit) "Mozilla Firefox for Red Hat Enterprise Linux" on Scientific Linux 7.5 (distro from Fermi Labs based on RHEL). All extensions and plugins are disabled (have tried enabled & disabled with same result).

Videos all run great on my Ubuntu 16.04LTS box with Firefox 62.0.3 (64-bit) "Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu" with the same plugins + "Shockwave Flash (Ask to Activate)."

Frustrating. Anyone have any ideas? TIA Ric

FFmpeg as Firefox on Linux has not used Gstreamer since Firefox 46.0 and later. Bug#1234092. The Ubuntu restricted extras is a way to install FFmpeg if using Ubuntu or a flavor of ubuntu yes.

Got FFmpeg rpm package installed, (running a derivative of Red Hat, not Ubuntu) and the problem seems to be solved. Thanks to all.
