Ubuntu 18.10, Firefox 66.03
Videos in the browser (youtube, twitter, reddit) load, and then pause. I can see any moment of the video as a still, but I can not play the video.
Does anyone know a fix for this? I have tried installing flash, installing ubuntu restricted extras, gstreamer, and so far the behavior persists.
edit: hardware... also disabling hardware accelleration in firefox does not solve anything. Currious why Virtualbox is reporting as VmWare.
