Thread: Embedded Video is not played in Firefox

    Embedded Video is not played in Firefox

    Hi,

    The below link contains a video which I'm not able to play on SLED 11 while I'm able to play on windows so why is that?

    http://www.filgoal.com/Arabic/VideoV...oVideoID=12330

    Could it be due to a missing plugin from firefox?

    Thanks,
    Ahmed

    Hi
    More likely a codec... Is this SLED 11, or one of the SPn versions? Can
    you post the output from;
    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    If it's SP3, then have a read here;
    https://www.suse.com/communities/con...r-sled-11-sp3/

    Also in Windows, if you right click on the embedded video, does it show
    any media information on the stream?

    It is actually SLED 11 SP2
    Code:
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 11
    PATCHLEVEL = 2
    If it's SP3, then have a read here;
    https://www.suse.com/communities/con...r-sled-11-sp3/
    Is there a way to install these additional codecs for SLED 11 SP2?

    Also in Windows, if you right click on the embedded video, does it show
    any media information on the stream?
    When I do the right click, I don't get information about the stream but the last item in the menu is about Adobe Flash Player version and this is what I believe to be missing from my laptop

    By the way, it is not only this page, this problem happens with a lot of pages!

    Thanks,
    Ahmed

    Hi again,

    Would like to highlight that the problem is not that I'm not able to play the video but the real problem is that the page is loaded without recognizing that this is a video there is no play sign so that I click it!

    Please let me know if this is not clear.

    Thanks,
    Ahmed

    Hi
    Since it's SP2, then probably the installed flash player is too old...

    You can check via YaST software management and search on
    flash.

    You should upgrade to SP3 if you can?

    As Malcom suggested, could be your version of Flash could be too old. General support for SLED 11 SP2 ended some time ago, you really should update to SP3.

    However, the videos at that website play on my iPad, which means they do not require Flash to view. Quite possibly they serve Flash video to some browsers and something in a HTML video tag to others. You could try using a useragent switcher extension for Firefox such as https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ent-overrider/ to make Firefox pretend to be Safari on iOS.

    I upgraded the flash player to release 11.2.202.406-0.3.1 and the problem is the same!

    I have that HP repro problem! I have posted the request on their forum long time ago but no reply and the forum is the only way I could find on HP website for support and technical assistance!

    Strange enough, when I use iOS/Safari 7 I'm not able to play the video!!!

    Any other suggestions?

    The other option is pipelight, but I doubt it would work for SP2.

    Do you still have an active subscription for your system, if not then
    maybe you should look at openSUSE, else get an updated subscription for
    SLED 11 and upgrade...

    By the way, after my last post I thought of giving the SP3 update another shot and I got one conflict, not related to the kernel as last time, and I opted for keeping the obsolete version of that package and the update passed so now I have SP3
