Description

Hi,

with the latest fresh install and update: SunOS oi-imac27 5.11 illumos-025a8c178a i86pc i386 i86pc

I installed vlc from hipster-encumbered and I cannot not play any mp4 video via vlc and firefox does not find the required codecs for the streams. Was also working ootb, before.

I think this is not a problem of vlc but instead the firefox problem mentioned in a different ticket.

I did another fresh install of OI 04/2024 USB on the Thinkpad P52 and firefox has the same symptoms. Not being able to play videos (mp4) but the standalone vlc player does.

I think one can be closed as it seems to be a firefox problem.
