    Default twitter videos not playing in firefox

    Hi everyone ! I have a problem with firefox, it used to work, but now twitter videos won't play, it says "media format could not be played" or something similar. I have all restricted formats installed from the packman repos, gstreamer plugins ugly , gecko media player, etc. I really dont know what is the problem. Running Leap 42.2 here

    It is not very interesting if you installed individual packages from Packman. You should do the "vendor switch to Packman".

    YaST > Software Management, then from the View menu choose Repositories. Then in the list of repos, select Packman. At right, above the list of Packages there is a line saying something like: Switch system packages to ..... Click on the underlined part and continue low-right.

    thank you very much it worked!! just one more question doing "switch system packages" is not the same as doing
    Code:
    zypper dup -r "repo"
    ?
    I 've being dealing with this playback issue for a long time seems that at some point it worked but I couldn't figure how to get it back working again, thanks a lot.

    As said. I offered the YaST version because IMHO it is easier to explain then
    Code:
    zypper dup --repo <repo-identification>
    because then I have to explain how to find out what the actual <repo-identification> is. Explaining to to
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    search for the Packman repo and use either the Number, or the Alias, or the Name ................

    But both are rather long stories to type (Sigh!). Specialy when you realize that this action is described all over the place
