firefox with ubuntu18.04.3-4.14 on xu4 cannot view youtube videos.

Unread post by bzb » Fri Jan 03, 2020 7:47 pm

I've installed ubuntu-18.04.3-4.14-mate-odroid-xu4-20190929.img.xz onto xu4 and I cannot view any youtube videos using firefox. When I try to view a video the video player says "An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: ..."

It works with chromium browser though.

Any insights greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

On my Raspi3 I had to use a special version of firefox. ( forgot the name..)
Which firefox did you try?

BTW: on Raspi it really sucked and I had to go back to chromium...

It's Firefox-esr esr= extended support release
It' on a debian server, maybe not suitable for Ubuntu?
