    Plays fine here:

    Btw, that's a HTML5 video, so flash-player is NOT used here.
    AFAIK Firefox uses gstreamer-0_10 to play back HTML5 videos, so maybe you miss the appropriate plugins package?
    It's an MPEG4/H.264 video in a quicktime container, I think you would need gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg for that.

    For chromium you would need chromium-ffmpeg from Packman.

    Thanks for the reply, I will have to fiddle with it tomorrow and see if I have the right plugins.

    BTW, the video would not play with firefox on OSX 10.8 either. I am not really worried as much about that although I do find it odd. Safari on the mac plays it right off.

    I will follow up with the results, thanks.

    Right. Firefox doesn't support MP4 (and gstreamer) on MacOS X yet.
    See also https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/..._compatibility (especially the last note) and http://bluishcoder.co.nz/2013/08/21/...n-firefox.html .

    Thank you wolfi323, installing gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg allowed me to play the video.

    Plays fine in Konqueror which you have installed.

    Yes, but that one also uses gstreamer-0_10, so as well requires gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg just like Firefox.

    Yes I am sure it should all just "work" but for some reason I had to install the gstreamer plug-in, I think it just happens sometimes for whatever reason.

    What I would like to know is who is this gstreamer person and how can I give some gratitude, thanks gstreamer people.

    ???
    There is no one "gstreamer person".

    You can find the project's homepage here:
