Regression: No video playback (MP4); Samsung Galaxy S4 (Android 4
.4 .2) (I420Color Converter)
See attached log-cat for OMX related output. Of particular interest maybe? E/OMX-VDEC-1080P( 209): omx_vdec::component_init(): Start of New Playback : role = OMX.qcom.video.decoder.avc : DEVICE = /dev/msm_vidc_dec E/OMX-VDEC-1080P( 209): omx_vdec::component_init(): Open returned fd 39, errno 2 Playing the video http://images.apple.com/media/us/mac/30-years/2014/feature/mac-30/mac30-feature-us-20140124_640x360h.mp4 will yield no video playback, however audio will work. On Firefox 26/27/28 video playback works. This is reproducible on my Samsung Galaxy S4 (Android 4.4.2) with Nightly (01/24) Last good revision: 0d11fce4f845 (2013-12-16) First bad revision: b1e5ade62913 (2013-12-17) Pushlog: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=0d11fce4f845&tochange=b1e5ade62913

We don't have an SGS4 here in the Auckland office. Could you try this build? http://people.mozilla.org/~eflores/apk/fennec-29.0a1.en-US.android-arm.apk
With the build above, I continue to not see any video playback on my device with the video from comment #0
The bug here is with Qualcomm's OMXCodec implementation that hadn't previously surfaced because the hardware decoder was returning a colour format we didn't support at the time. When we pass the kClientNeedsFramebuffer flag (needed by Samsung and others) to OMXCodec, internally it sets a flag called |mThumbnailMode|. Somebody at qcom (presumably) decided it would be efficient to handle this flag in their OMXCodec implementation by returning a single video frame and then return EOS on subsequent |read()| calls. This patch just makes sure we don't pass the flag into Qualcomm decoders.

Mind posting a build for me to test with the patch applied on 28?

I still have no idea why when I was testing Aurora 28.0a2 at the time and yesterday again it was not working, oh well. Lukas, I think we should get this out in a point release.
Thanks for the detective work here, I'll get a proposed schedule out tomorrow morning to deal with this in a fennec only dot release.

Duplicate of this bug: 984230
I'm still seeing this issue - no video playback when playing the video from comment#0 - on Firefox 28.0.1 and Nightly 31.0a1 (2014-04-24) on several devices: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (4.2.2) Samsung Galaxy Tab (4.0.4) Samsung Galaxy S3 (4.3) Samsung Galaxy Note (4.0.4) Motorola RAZR XT910 (4.0.4) ZTE x86 (4.0.4) I'll attach a log capture from Galaxy Tab 2 playing http://images.apple.com/media/us/mac/30-years/2014/feature/mac-30/mac30-feature-us-20140124_640x360h.mp4 Also I've tested the files from http://people.mozilla.org/~atrain/mobile/tests/media.html and all of them were played correctly on all devices mentioned above.
I believe that the aforementioned in comment #18 is a seperate issue and not nothing new in regard to video playback on that particular Apple video. In particular, this bug is focused on Qualcomm chipsets. As in this case, I do not see any frames at all. I see the scrubber and time marker work which wasn't in the case in this particular bug report. Can you please file a new bug? I am able to reproduce an issue with that particular video on my Samsung Galaxy Note II (Android 4.1.2), on all channels including Firefox 27. As for this bug in particular, I can verify the mozilla-release candidate is working.
I filed bug 987223.
