[solved] HTML5 Youtube with no video on Firefox/Iceweasel, in Debian testing/Stretch

Posted 08-10-2015 at 12:04 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Googling a little bit about, some solutions to the same symptoms pointed to needing to install something like gstreamer-ffmpeg. But not only that's unavailable in the latest Debian testing (Stretch), but it seems it's the other way around: for me it started to work again when I deactivated something related to gstreamer on about:config.

Doing so doesn't seem to have affected anything else (namely flash videos). But I feel that now HTML5 on youtube is somewhat heavier, buy maybe it...

Icedove: Cleanly reply to a message from a web archive

I assume that - at least once in your 'working' life, you've felt that your job wasn't satisfying you. Working in Hi-Tech - the last 29 years have been reasonably interesting, but lately I felt that whatever I sought to do, wasn't doing it for me. Now I think I might have found what I was destined to do: Ethical Hacking!

My personal roadmap to becoming a savvy computergeek in many area's of computer technologies started when I was only 16. I was seriously interested in how computers...
