Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have noticed that I have not been able to play audio or video from a few different players in Firefox for a while, namely videos from the Canal + Zapping website and music from the Free Music Archive website; however, most other websites, like Youtube, Dailymotion and Soundcloud, work perfectly in Firefox.

Also, this problem does not exist in Google Chrome.

I am using Ubuntu 13.04 and Firefox 22.0 with proposed and backport updates, as well as ubuntu-restricted-extras 57 installed.

Cheers

Could some extension be to blame? Maybe some script that needs to function is being blocked? freemusicarchive.org/music/Johnny_Haway/Race_Soul/El_sky_lo_try plays for me in Firefox 23 (beta). –  user25656 Aug 6 '13 at 11:58
    
Thanks vasa1, it was actually the add-on HTTPS Everywhere that was the culprit. I could listen to the Free Music Archive after disabling it. The Zapping website ended up working fine after a while. –  chtfn Oct 15 '13 at 8:26

The Zapping website ended up working fine after a while, without any particular action.

I might add that streams using mp4, like this one, because of licensing issues (they will support it when a third-party decoder is available).
