I'm working at a music company and we have noticed that audio quality for videos on Youtube is significantly worse in Firefox than Chrome and even the new Chromium based Edge browsers. The audio sounds like it is lower bit-rate with a total loss in low frequencies. You can literally play the same video in one browser, stop it, switch to the other, and immediately notice the difference.

Is this a Firefox caused issue, or do the Chromium based browsers support an audio transport that Firefox does not? I'd hate to think that Google is just purposely using lower bit-rates on browsers other than theirs for no technical reason.

How to Reproduce 1) Open Firefox to a youtube music video on VEMO channel (professional official music videos) 2) Open Chrome to the same URL/Video 3) Play the video on one browser at a time, switching back and forth to hear the difference.
