    No problems here on my Tumbleweed, just updated to 84.0.2 a couple of minutes ago.

    Question: Where is your Firefox coming from? 84.0.2 was made available for TW with the latest snapshot 20210111 that was pushed into the repos this afternoon.

    FYI, I've opened an entry about this in Bugzilla:

    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1686079

    Not so much replies until now, I'm afraid...

    You can also find some more details there (some examples are failing on Leap 15.2. and Win10 :-o ).

    My FF 84.0.2 on Leap 15.2 came from

    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...USE_Leap_15.2/


    My multimedia libs are also packman-based:

    Probably websites tries to send videos in AV1 format.
    Check it with disabling support for AV1:

    Code:
    media.av1.enabled = false
    For playing AV1 you need AV1 codecs. Firefox hints on dav1d.
    AV1 is an open format, no need for searching it in closed-source repos.

    dav1d - An AV1 decoder
    dav1d is a SIMD-enhanced decoder for AV1 video. It features

    * Accelerated assembly using x86 AVX2.
    * Partial acceleration using x86 SSSE3 and ARM NEON.

    * Support for bitdepths 8, 10 and 12.
    * Support for chroma subsamplings 4:2:0, 4:2:2, 4:4:4 and grayscale.
    AV1 is a royalty-free video codec by the Alliance for Open Media. It has the potential to be up to 20% better than the HEVC codec.

    I was using version from Mozilla repository. Downgrading to versions in OpenSuse ones fixes issue. But now on lower version.
    - Custom built core i7 720, 18GB RAM, nVidia GT1030 Asus Xonar D2X, OpenSuse 15.2 and Tumbleweed 64bit

    Still the same situation here:

    * 84.0.2 from Mozilla repo causes the video playback issue
    * ESR 78.6.0 from OpenSuse repo fixes the video playback issue completely

    In the meantime I've continued to track down the issue: webm videos are playing fine, mp4 videos are causing problems.

    And:

    On the 84.0.2 from OpenSuseRepo (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...USE_Leap_15.2/) the issue with mp4 is there.


    On the 84.0.2 from Mozilla directly (https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/...nux-x86_64/de/) mp4 is playing without problems.

    What's the difference between the two versions?

    For your information: Visited your links in above bugzilla with firefox. All all them play smoothly with version 84.0.2. No blocking or error messages encountered.
