I install anything in packman that contains "ffmpeg" or "libav" in the name. I'm not sure if that is enough.
While Packman helped with the one link I provided, here's another that fails: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vepQloYhgqs
However, this one also works fine in Chromium.
Works for me. Codec information according to "Statistics for nerds": Codecs avc1.64001f (136) / opus (251) This is apparently H.264 which requires libavcodec from packman. If you have that it should work with Firefox. I'm not sure why it doesn't for you.
rpm -qa | grep libav ?
rpm -qa | grep libav

I often watch CNN and other clips from Youtube and haven't had this problem before, only since I updated to 15.2. Also, it's not just CNN. I also have problems with Global TV, such as this one, where I get error code 102630: https://globalnews.ca/news/7141438/iran-confirms-nuclear-centrifuge/
It also works in Chromium.
I guess it is because you haven't switched all libavcodec to packman and that is also the reason why Chromium works but Firefox doesn't. Both might use different libraries based on what they prefer internally.
Firefox 78 for example (68.x probably similar but haven't looked it up) starts searching with version 58 and then proceeds getting lower. Your version 58 is from Leap not not from Packman. Therefore it does not work. Switch version 58 to packman or remove any version 58 from your system (if it has no deps but most likely it has)
