Their player has issues as in you are unable to tap play but I'd like to confirm that it's not us.

Here's some warnings in the console on-load:

[10:03:39.007] <source> element has no "src" attribute. Media resource load failed. @ http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/quick-look-the-last-of-us/2300-7467/
[10:03:39.007] All candidate resources failed to load. Media load paused. @ http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/quick-look-the-last-of-us/2300-7467/

When I tap the player I get 

[10:04:09.364] TypeError: Value does not implement interface Node. @ http://vidtech.cbsinteractive.com/h5/2_2_0/CBSI_PLAYER.js:304

Line 304

VastParser.prototype.serialize=function(a){if("undefined"!=typeof XMLSerializer)return(new XMLSerializer).serializeToString(a);if(a.xml)return a.xml;throw"XML.serializer is not supported or can't serialize "+a;};
This also similarily kind of fails in Firefox on desktop, albeit you can tap play. It seems that no source for the video element is fetched.

I think this is tech evangelism to explain to CBS Interactive that their HTML5 support for Firefox on desktop and Android is broken.
I posted a thread topic if it turns out to be a problem that GiantBomb has control of over at http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/bug-reporting-33/unable-to-view-html5-video-in-firefox-for-android-1441443/

This issue mystifies me so far.. testing on FxOS 1.1.
1) Without "Android" in UA string, the play button does nothing. This is probably due to sniffing in http://vidtech.cbsinteractive.com/h5/2_2_1/CBSI_PLAYER.js

2) Spoofing as Android the video still doesn't play. The player shows an error message about no compatible video source.  Now, some content on this site is served as M3U playlists (at least on iPhone), but for example http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/we-got-yer-console-farming-simulator-2013-launch-t/2300-7897/ creates a VIDEO element referencing the MP4 file directly:
http://v.giantbomb.com/2013/09/04/tr_framingsimulator_090413_1800.mp4
For some reason it still doesn't play, and trying to load that MP4 URL says the video file is corrupted..? It plays in VLC..

Created attachment 832851 [details]
884280.htm

adb logcat output isn't very informative: 

E/GeckoConsole( 1208): [JavaScript Warning: "Media resource http://v.giantbomb.com/2013/09/04/tr_framingsimulator_090413_1800.mp4 could not be decoded." {file: "http://192.168.1.10/884280.htm" line: 0}]

The video in this attachment (warning: linked directly on the giantbomb server, might disappear) plays in Android stock browser, and Firefox on Android, but not on my Geeksphone Peak running FxOS 1.1.
Aaron, how's that attachment behaving for you? Do you get a more detailed log output?

This is the same as bug 866080 which has been broken forever.
Flags: needinfo?(aaron.train)
Thanks Aaron. I'll set 866080 as a blocker for this one - we still need to contact Giantbomb about fixing the sniffing later on, but there's no point in doing so until 866080 is fixed.
Depends on: 866080
