Video on the Rai website doesn't work in Firefox
http://www.ray.rai.it/dl/ray/media/Un-chimico-in-famiglia-37bb061d-f424-4600-98f0-1a517c767122.html works in Chrome, doesn't work in Firefox. Rai is the national public (and largest) Italian TV network, so its website is probably used by a lot of people. (I've tested this on a Nexus 5 with Android 5.1.1)
The video works in Firefox desktop on Linux.
Looks to break using a Firefox for Android user agent on desktop. Thus has a webcompat component. Mike do you have a moment to look at this? Took a quick look at the the source but could not determine the Video player.

Unassigning since we should just support HLS at some point and this will just work™. But if someone who speaks Italian wants to try to talk to the website about their mp4 stream... :thumbsup:

I could send them an email, but I guess it'll just get ignored.
Per bug 577084 comment 27, we're not going to support HLS.
I think it would be very bad for us to not support HLS on Android -- "video doesn't work" is a very good reason to switch browsers. That said, bug 577084 comment 29 mentions Android specifically. So not much has changed (the video works in desktop). :/

(oops sorry, didn't mean to ni?)
Hopefully the work in Bug 1286133 will make this work finally...
Whiteboard: [needsdiagnosis] → [country-it][notcontactready]
Looks like they're now using a different player (http://mediaelementjs.com/) and it's working in Firefox Beta as well.
