New Paragraph?: Youtube HTML5 Support

The MediaSource extensions on Firefox/Linux seem not to be fully supported yet and thus YouTube will only play 720p/30fps videos. This seems to be a Linux specific problem. However a workaround exist. Look here: (especially the last part of the accepted answer). Also although H.264 is fully supported you still need to install "gst-libav". Maybe someone should extend the troubleshooting section by a paragraph with this workaround as missing full YouTube support is probably a very common problem. --Scindix (talk) 22:12, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

This one is related, but it's not the same: Firefox_tweaks#WebM_and_Youtube By the way: what's the difference between Firefox_tweaks and Firefox#Troubleshooting? Maybe they should be merged. --Scindix (talk) 22:15, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

I guess this is why Firefox_tweaks#Enable_additional_media_codecs is marked as incomplete. Feel free to expand the table. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:13, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
