[SOLVED] Audio streaming in Firefox: Celluloid components missing?

Post by palimmo »

Hi.
I can't play within Firefox 73 any .m3u8, .m3u, .mp3 or .ogg files. Celluloid is launched instead.
How can I play them within Firefox?

I think in the past was possible thanks to VLC components for Firefox, right?
Thanks!

Hmmm... I am not experiencing the same problem. I CAN play mp3 and ogg files on youtube with Firefox 73.0. Perhaps before you used to play any music online through Vlc? Or am I mistaken in this suggestion? But when I open any site with mp3 or ogg files on Youtube with Firefox 73.0 I can play them without problems. Just wanted to share this experience to help you further analyse the cause of your specific problem...

Right-click on audio file and select "Open with other", then select Firefox. You can choose to add Firefox to the list or make it default for that file type. Note, if you use FireJail, then Firefox can only see files in your download folder by default.
