This issue is logged as a follow up from bug 842639.

I'm unable to watch and listen videos on both YouTube and Soundcloud, in Metro mode, with: Windowws 8.1 64-bit and Win 8 in both 32-bit and 64-bit architecture (build ID:20131003030203).

After uninstalling flash, the audio from soundcloud is still played in desktop firefox.

STR:
1. Open Firefox Metro
2. Go to youtube or soundcloud.com
3. Select a video/audio to play

Expected results:
The video and audio start to play.

Actual results:
YouTube and Soundcloud video / audio are not working.
While testing for the pre-beta sign-off, with latest Aurora on both Win 8 and 8.1 64-bit, I've noticed that on Youtube, some videos work and others don't.

Videos that work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFf4zc02a5Q and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FydwthgLeM

Videos that don't work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPgElESKtZw and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bdogVyV6yg

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Yeah, youtube converts some videos over to html5 web video, but they don't convert them all. Not much we can do about this.
