When I view that link with the Fedora provided firefox, and right click
on the video, and select stats for nerds, it shows that I am seeing it
via webm codec=vp9, which is an html5 format. I didn't do anything
special, so I think you have configured your browser in some way that
prevents webm from playing. Add-ons? Special about:config settings?
Also what's the status of the availability of codecs as shown on the
/html5 page on youtube? it pretty much tells you what it thinks your
setup can and cannot play.
