Firefox can't play youtube live media after update.

I ran a dup yesterday and got the system up to date on the latest TW and everything seems fine except now FF won’t play youtube live video anymore. It appears that something either removed h264 support …I think that’s what it is or something in FF is broke. I seem to have all the codecs and they should be from the packman repo. Anybody else experience this?

Try:

zypper dup --allow-vendor-change --from Packman

Replace Packman with the name or URL or number of the Packman Repo.

Hi, if you allow me to ask, that is just Firefox that is not working? I did an update Saturday and my audio devices wasn’t be able to be managed anymore. I use KDE, so In my case I need to install plasma5-pa again, I did via Yast.

No issues with FF

This is the second thread about FF having issues. But mine is fine :person_shrugging:t3:‍:male_sign:

I did this when I installed TW over a year ago…did it again and had two files but nothing else. Still FF does not play youtube live streaming and some twitter videos as they seem to use what appears to be h264 which I believe is the issue. Chrome is working so this seems to be a FF issue.

Not sure how but ffmpeg4, if installed, was uninstalled and reinstalled when I installed opera and it fixed the FF issue. Just reporting back…I didn’t see that package shown on the wiki for media in suse.
