• Firefox and h.264/mp4 green video


    hi,
    I’m using gnome (gnome-shell) on a laptop with intel/nvidia card and recently have a problem with some videos on firefox, the f*^*** green video

    This testing page [http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html][0]">[http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html][1] with 3 videos (different formats) shows how the browser plays them, and in Chromium all three play well, but in Firefox just the WebM and Ogg/theora, but I get a green screen (just hear sound) with h.264/mp4 coded video.

    Using Chromium there’s not such problem so I guess everything needed is installed on my system, or not? I mean, it’s just a plugin missed from firefox or something?

    That page is not the problem, of course, is just a page for testing. I get this problem on sites like vimeo, some youtubes, vine, …

    After some searching on forums it seems it’s something about flash plugin, but this videos are html5s, so how can flash/adobe be involved?

    thank you

  • Hi, XoseM, i check the videos on my O.S ( KDE) and i see the three videos smoothly. Mi video card is:

    [b:zkdyupeg] Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RS780D [Radeon HD 3300][/b:zkdyupeg]

    … and i use the open driver[b:zkdyupeg] radeon and mesa 10.2.7[/b:zkdyupeg]. I think it’s a problem of intel/nvidia driver.

    Best regards,

    Héctor.

  • could just be the way firefox handles it. have you updated to the latest version? they just released a new one.

  • no problem for me with the three videos in firefox. i use gnome-shell and driver nouveau for nvidia card

  • so it’s my problem
    I’ll dig deeper to solve it

    at least works fine on chromium

    thanks anyway
