Youtube videos of all the format doesn't play in Ubuntu 14.04 Firefox 40.

Only 360p is playing. But all resolutions works fine in Chromium. But I want to use Firefox as default.

Is it flash player related issue ? After little bit Google I have installed freshplayerplugin but still same problem. Is there any way to solve this ??


It is because of the lack of H.264 codec support on Firefox.

Try to install the FFmpeg plugin for GStreamer :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
