Firefox is not playing most of my videos
I have been running Mozilla that comes default with Ubuntu 18.04 for the last one and a half months but not been able to play most videos and gifs. Youtube runs properly but Amazon Prime does not. I tried restarting in the safe mode and still couldn't get it to work. I only added an ad-blocker add on and disabling this did not help too.
I browse reddit and one thing I noticed is that gfycat gifs play fine but rest of them just don't play. They just show a picture of the first frame, no error messages as such.
With the various flavors of Ubuntu you may also find the FFmpeg in Ubuntu Restricted Extras for example. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormatsFunda le mpendulo ngokuhambisana nalesi sihloko 👍 0

I installed from the link given but still the issue is not solved. Thanks for the reply!
Make sure you have installed the latest FFmpeg packages in Ubuntu. See also about:config: media.ffmpeg.enabled = true
You can open the YouTube test page to check support in Firefox for playing HTML5 media.
