Since Firefox 43 you should have ffmpeg and libavcodec from packman
instead the
original repositories. Firefox tries to use libavcodec directly and
the fallback
to GStreamer (libav) does not correctly work because the ffmpeg
compiled with
openSUSE is supporting weird combinations of codecs so Firefox
_thinks_ it might
be able to play H.264 while it does not in many cases.

I just notice this thread.. sorry to have openned an other :-)

I usually run

zypper dup --from "Packman Repository"

after every install. I think I did this time, but may be not.

reading your post I noticed libavformat56, and some other libraries come
from opensuse, not packman.

So I run again

zypper dup --from "Packman Repository"

with a lot of changes

I had to restart FF, but now it works as expected


Yes, it was the solution, now FF plays videos correctly. Thank you :)
