After being puzzled by Firefox making it more difficult to use Adobe Flash Player and apparently being forcibly shown HTML5 I was geeking out and hoping it means Adobe Flash Crasher is on its way into obsolescence and extinction. Although it looks ike Youtube's video quality has decreased, at least for now.

I hate Adobe Flash Player. while I'm sure its coding must be impressive IMO it is the worst video playing software ever. Slow, inconsistent, buggy, crashy, tricky. In my experience it can't do the one thing it exists to do very well: play .FLV files. The .FLV filetype is ok though and there are other programs like RealPlayer and VLC that can technically deal with it, but I guess Adobe doesn't want them meddling.

But now I'm seeing HTML5 is causing similar problems. After each time I rerun Firefox after an APPCRASH (they happen so regularly and predictably) I know it's just a matter of time until the next one. And the cause is almost always YouTube, running FireFox's memory up even when I don't have many tabs open. Then I start getting blotches of the black screen of death and I know that session is now in its death throes. Memory Fox and clearing cache may buy me another 45 minutes, tops.

Is there some way I can have my streamed media confined like we use to have it when FireFox was good and only the video would crash but not the whole application? I'm actually missing that now.

I have a quite low end system set up, so I'm not expecting miracles from it, but there seems to be some problems playing Youtube videos on Firefox.

If I load a video on Internet Explorer, it will play fine, even on 1080p with CPU usage of about 20%. Firefox often exhibits problems playing videos.

If I launch Firefox immediately from signing in, the videos will play fine. If I navigate to another video, there will usually be dropped frames and high CPU usage.

I understand that Internet Explorer will use the h.264 codec which is GPU accelerated whilst FF will use a more CPU intense task, but that doesn't really explain why sometimes the videos will play fine and others, it won't.

I have tried on a completely clean install of Firefox, so it will unlikely be extensions, profiles or add-ons. I have then changed the timing of the sessions saving and disabled smooth scrolling as advised elsewhere, with no success.

All help gratefully received.

I have tried Flash Control, HTML5 Everywhere, Flash Block, Shumway and so far none are doing what I want or are very intuitive. I am grateful that Mozilla is developing html5 to replace unsafe flash. Adobe appears to be working with Microsoft and Google to force older computers into the trash pile that do not have sse2 instruction, force issues onto GNU/Linux users by not fully supporting flash, and also making Firefox appear to have "performance issues" to coerce people into using less secure browsers like Chrome or IE.

Is there a simple and obvious way to choose to use my older version of flash or HTML5, depending on the web site? What plugin is best?

My PC becomes unresponsive after several days without a reboot. I open several tabs and use Facebook, watch YouTube videos, and read worthless Yahoo news. Ever since HTML5 videos have replaced Flash, my WinXP PC has required more frequent reboots of Firefox and of the PC, itself. I used to be able to open Task Manger and kill "plug-in container" and everything would be fine. Is there such an option for HTML5 videos? Note: I have No Script installed. Even with No Script, the HTML5 videos auto-load and slow down my machine, as they add up and don't let go of memory.

Thanks for volunteering and helping the community. We appreciate it.

Ever since the HTML5 player has taken over Youtube, I've had problems with it perma-freezing my computer as soon as any window was opened. Until recently I got around that by setting media.windows-media-foundation.enabled to false, forcing Youtube to use the Flash player. Lately, though, it's somehow gone back to the HTML5 player with 360p resolution only, so I went digging through the config file again in search of solutions. That's when I found two settings I hadn't noticed before, media.hardware-video-decoding.enabled (which I found true) and media.hardware-video-decoding.failed (which I also found true, though I hadn't touched it before). Re-enabling windows-media-foundation caused the hard-freezes to reoccur, but I discovered that by setting media.hardware-video-decoding.enabled to false I was able to leave the windows-media-foundation option true, and I can now use Youtube's HTML5 player in all resolutions. I conclude from this that the media.hardware-video-decoding.failed setting is bugged somehow, since it didn't seem to prevent the freezes.

I was watching Netflix fine last night, but now all of the sudden it's giving me this message when I try to watch videos:

I suppose Netflix is trying to use HTML5 instead of Silverlight, of course getting away from Flash only to come back to Adobe isn't that ideal.

The plugin is automatically downloaded by Firefox, so this is a Firefox issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm

Anyway, I have "Play DRM content" selected in Options ==> Content. What else could fix this?

Hi all,

First off I'm using Firefox 44 currently and I've used a copy on my work PC that has well used user profile and also a fresh install on my home laptop without any additional addons with the same result.

I'm struggling to make html5 videos work across all browsers. I thought I had this nailed until I realised it had stopped working in Firefox. I'm currently using the following code to load video via a html5 webpage (I know this is html talk but please bear with me as I believe it more likely be a bug with firefox than my code):


EDIT: ok so it won't show my html 5 code properly and I can't find any instructions on how I should put html5 code into the questions on this support forum, so here it is in [tags], just replace the [] with <>

<!-- first try HTML5 playback: if serving as XML, expand `controls` to `controls="controls"` and autoplay likewise -->
<!-- warning: playback does not work on iOS3 if you include the poster attribute! fixed in iOS4.0 -->
<video width="900" height="506" poster="videos/poster.jpg" onclick="this.play()" preload="none" controls>
<source src="videos/playme.webmhd.webm" type="video/webm" /><!-- Chrome10+, Ffx4+, Opera10.6+ -->
<source src="videos/playme.mp4" type="video/mp4" /><!-- Safari / iOS, IE9 -->
<source src="videos/playme.oggtheora.ogv" type="video/ogg" /><!-- Firefox3.6+ / Opera 10.5+ -->						

<!-- fallback to Flash: -->
<object width="900" height="506" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="videos/player.swf">
<!-- Firefox uses the `data` attribute above, IE/Safari uses the param below -->
<param name="movie" value="videos/player.swf" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="flashvars" value='autostart=true&amp;controlbar=over&amp;file=https://www.examplesite.com/videos/playme.mp4' />
<!-- fallback image -->
<img src="videos/No_Playback.jpg" width="900" height="506" alt="Oops No Playback"  title="Your browser cannot play this file, please use another browser" />
</object>
</video>

The page has several videos listed all with the same result. I don't believe its the code causing any issue either as even if I load the webm video directly in the url it still will not play. I've loaded the webm video in chrome without problem.

I can see from the network tab of the web console that it is trying to load the webm file and that the MIME type is correct, but it just displays the poster for the video and the correct length of the video. If I hit play it won't play, similarly if I try to seek it won't either. I've tried it with multiple videos too.

I did initially convert the videos from mp4 h264 into a webm using the webmhd preset in miro video converter. However I've also used the following command using ffmpeg to reconvert the video as suggested elsewhere online:

ffmpeg -i input.webm -codec copy -avoid_negative_ts 1 output.webm

As it is suggested that it could be a bug with negative timestamps in some version of firefox, but this still fails to load anything but the first video frame.

I've attached a screenshot of what I can see. The poster is a yellow jpg which states press play, so what you're actually seeing is the first frame of the webm video after I've hit play (as preload has been set to none).

I'm assuming it doesn't use the mp4 as a fallback because the webm should be working? I don't want to have to put the mp4 first as its larger in file size and not an open standard that will be permanently adopted. Plus the mp4s seem to take an age to load on android mobiles.

Now this code works fine in all other browsers, as does the webm files as stated above, except for either Firefox or Firefox Mobile on Android (can't test it on Mac as not an apple owner). I've tied it on various PCs and laptops (windows 7 & 10), and also my Sony xperia Z3. Currently using my windows 10 hp omen to type this.

Bonjour,

  having issue with flash and simple playlist shuffle handling by youtube I decided to give HTML5 a try.

Now, my playlist seems to be working good (most of the time anyway!) but after a couple of videos I end up with only a black screen within youtube but still hearing the music (at least!).

I am writting this because I had the same issue many, many months, if not years ago. I have deactivated Video Acceleration within Firefox which fix the problem for a little while (I can now see a couple of videos before I get the black screeen).

What is puzzling me is how come, years after youtube switched to html5, this problem is still around and not fixed!?

Is there any way to fix the issue!? Is this a Firefox issue? Youtube issue?

I'm running Windows 10 64bits, fully patched and latets release of Firefox.
