I'm running F28 and haven't had any problem playing videos for the weeks
I have been. I just went to youtube and had no problem watching a video
with both the Fedora firefox and nightly. Is there a specific way to
make sure that a video is H264 (mp4) instead of webm (most of youtube)?
Can you maybe point me to a video that has the problem so I can try
does it tell you that your
browser has H.264 support?
Fedora 27 Firefox does. Fedora 28 Firefox does not.
