Description

Videos that are played via the player on pbs.twimg.com do not load. An example of this can be found here -http://dudecomedy.com/mom-shaves-daughter-head-caught-bullying-bald-cancer-patient/

Looking through pbs.twimg previous reports with Firefox (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1076592), it would appear to be a common issue in the older versions of Firefox.

I can confirm that in Firefox 49 this issue no longer occurs and the video in the above mention link plays correctly, however in Firefox 39 (around the base version of the current ABB app) the video does not play.

In short, the overall upgrade in Firefox Mobile code base could resolve this issue itself.

Environment

ABB Android 1.1.1
Galaxy S7
Android 6.0.1

How to reproduce

  1. Visit http://dudecomedy.com/mom-shaves-daughter-head-caught-bullying-bald-cancer-patient/
  2. Select play on embedded video

Observed behaviour

Video player shows error message 'The media could not be played'.

Expected behaviour

The video loads correctly.

As the link does not work anymore, I found another twitter hosted video in an article: http://dudecomedy.co/twitter-obliterated-the-cash-me-ousside-girl-after-she-brags-about-how-rich-she-is/

Seems as if the Fennec update solved the issue. Maybe we can close this ticket after the next round of QA?
