Seems you do not read.

  • If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post. Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

You can edit your post.

IDK the GNOME DE :slight_smile:
Which player is installed and which settings you set in browser for the player?

All in all the Video's are not broken and best is you read the FF manual :slight_smile: .

How would I check for the player and find the player settings in FF?

As always, we do not teach every app in Linux-World.
Start reading, please.
Here is the Garuda forum, not the Firefox forum, sorry.
