(Whiteboard: [platform-rel-Youtube])

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0
Build ID: 20150223185154

Steps to reproduce:

Using Windows Professional 7 N (Possibly any N versions) which doesn't include Windows media packs use Firefox 37 to view Youtube video using html5 player. (tested with http://youtu.be/HHkEdCm2t8s )




Actual results:

Html5 player appeared and showed a moving circle indicating its loading the video.
However the video never plays or indicates any errors.


Expected results:

When needed libraries for playback aren't found making playback impossible, I'd expect Firefox to tell this to me via some kind of error message, popup or similar.
