Problem only occurs when I try to view videos on my facebook wall in Firefox. There is no sound for the video, only a very loud "crepitation". Using Ubuntu 14.

I already tired to reinstall pulseaudio, didn't helped. I tried to clear the cache/cookies/history in Firefox, didn't helped. I tried to reboot the notebook, didn't help.

Question: how can I fix this? Or the solution is to clean install a fresh Ubuntu 15?


Search google for

static noise facebook firefox

and you can find that facebook made a new proprietary video serving method, that is only supported in Ubuntu 15 (at least it works on it)
