This comes with YouTube.

 

My browser is the latest Firefox version 52.3.0 (32 bits)

 

My OS is XP Pro SP3

 

I have the Flash/HTML5 Firefox add on

https://mybrowseradd...flash-html.html

 

Somehow only Flash videos are working. Somehow the HTML5 videos are rejected. I get a black screen and this:

 

Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available

click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 videos

 

Some videos will run fine. Other videos will not run.

 

Embedded Facebook videos mostly not working.

Live Facebook videos never working.

 

I have tried a lot of things somehow it isn't any better.

 

Have I missed anything??

Thank you for your answer. I followed the instructions on your link.

It all seems to be working for now.

I still can't watch live videos on Facebook. Somehow I get turned off.

I get a still image and then when I click on it I get an error message.

Every time is the same.

Re-runs work but not live feed. I wonder why.

There's so many scripts and stuff nowadays.

When I tried about:config I got "Navigation to the webpage was cancelled" in an IE box and I use Firefox.

I have Firefox 52.4.1 on XP and can't play any You Tube videos. I disabled all my add ons but no help. I uninstalled Firefox but no change. Help. Thank you.

Is this issue only happening with firefox?

Have you install latest version of graphic card driver?

Honestly firefox is really "well-known" for it's problems with displaying videos.

It also happens with Chrome. I have a Intel 965 Express Family Chipset, which the Intel website says is discontinued.
