Try installing the flatpak version.

Install the ffmpeg version that matches the firefox runtime (mine is 23.08):

flatpak install org.freedesktop.Platform.ffmpeg-full

Can you provide a link to a video that fails for you. What desktop? X11 or Wayland?

Maybe try to match what I have installed and see if it works. I had issues on my other laptop running Leap, but after matching the ffmpegs that are installed on my other laptop running Tumbleweed, videos are now working. I know your distro is different, but see what you can do.
