Some live streams fail to play
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0 Build ID: 20171121103731 Steps to reproduce: Tried to play: https://news.sky.com/watch-live Actual results: This error is displayed: An error occured. Please try again later (Playback ID:XKveXHd5ampQvrkj). Learn More Expected results: The live stream should have played.
Windows doesn't work too. Console says something like: Media resource blob:https://example.org/4e5c6ee7-2167-4599-8028-32f4df9f01dc could not be decoded.
Since it's clearly related to broken WebM format parser/player, you can disable it completely by setting "media.webm.enabled:false" until the bug is fixed. Disabling WebM makes the live streams play for now..
Component: Untriaged → Audio/Video: Playback
Product: Firefox → Core
This also happens on Firefox ESR.
I have the same problem on Youtube live streams. Disabeling webm works
Also happening to me in ESR.
