I believe this is the same issue reported in
<https://bugs.gnu.org/38045>, so I'm closing this new bug as a
duplicate.

My best guess is here:
<https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=3D38045#22>

      Thanks,
        Mark

Sorry, I forgot to mention why I think this might be relevant.  The
reason is because upstream Firefox adopts the approach of downloading
certain codecs in pre-compiled form, to avoid certain patent concerns.
That's not necessary when using Guix's system ffmpeg library, but maybe
Mozilla rigged the bundled ffmpeg library to avoid including support for
those codecs.

I have a hypothesis of what might have happened here.

Since the upgrade to version 68, the IceCat package in GNU Guix is no
longer using our system ffmpeg.  Although ffmpeg is listed in the
'inputs', "guix gc --references $(guix build icecat)" shows that the
built package does not reference it.  It must be using the bundled copy
of ffmpeg instead.

Prior to the upgrade to version 68, the IceCat package in Guix
referenced the system ffmpeg library, and that fact was reflected in the
output of "guix gc --references".

Possibly related: I noticed while debugging this upgrade that the
'link-libxul-with-libraries' phase no longer seems to be doing its job.
That's why I needed to add pulseaudio's lib directory to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
in the 'wrap-program' phase.

I would be grateful for help debugging these issues.  I'm very heavily
overloaded with other tasks at present, and it may be a few weeks before
I can look into this specific bug.

Incidentally, I agree that 'important' is an appropriate severity level
for this bug.

      Regards,
        Mark

Hi Raghav,

Are you actively working on this bug?  If you are not, then as a matter
of etiquette, I think it would be best not to change its severity.

Can you provide specific example URLs that do not work?

Did you try installing the gst-plugins-* packages?  I observed similar
behavior in the past.  I believe I resolved it by installing the right
gst-plugins-* packages, which is probably one of these:

gst-plugins-base
gst-plugins-good
gst-plugins-bad
gst-plugins-ugly

You might also have to adjust some settings in about:config.  I can't
remember if I did that or not.  Video in IceCat generally works, but
depending on the video you might need to jump through some extra hoops
to make it happen.

Hello Guix and GNUzilla!

I am currently using IceCat (68.2.0-guix0-preview3) on Guix System.

Starting from version 68.X.X, I started to face issues with playing
videos online. This happens on most of the websites (not all though).

I get any of these following errors:
1) No compatible source was found for this media.
2) Your browser does not support the playback of this video. Please try
using a different browser.
3) Error loading player: No playable sources found.

I thought issues could be due to any of the add-ons I am using. But I
was able to reproduce these errors by running Icecat on safe-mode (i.e.
with all add-ons disabled).

Regards,
RG.
