User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0 Build ID: 20170616092053 Steps to reproduce: Go to http://www.tutorialrepublic.com/codelab.php?topic=html5&file=video-element Actual results: The poster image on top of the video will be "grayed", there is some kind of opacity on it. Expected results: There should not be any opacity. Chrome and Edge works fine (use them to compare the image). This opacity problem doesn't look nice. Problems happens in Firefox in Linux and Windows.

This isn't an audio playback issue. It's a design one. It's a matter of guess I guess. The video isn't playing.
Component: Audio/Video: Playback → Video/Audio Controls
Product: Core → Toolkit
Yes, it's a design issue, not about playback. Here's an image that shows Chrome, Edge and Firefox, I think it looks much better in Chrome and Edge. https://s23.postimg.org/pg5pch2u3/firefox-chrome-edge-html5-video-image-poster.jpg Haven't found a way to remove this opacity, looks like it's built-in into Firefox.
ralin, can you investigate this? I have seen in on occasion too but I don't have reliable STR.

Ever confirmed: true
The grey overlay is by design for the visual refresh, but I think it's fine to make it transparent and behave like Chrome and Edge.  http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/2c9a5993ac40ec1db8450e3e0a85702fa291b9e2/toolkit/themes/shared/media/videocontrols.css#84-86
