If he has flashplayer installed on his system and set to "always ask befor starting the plugin" the automatic or manual selection of html5 in FF will not work. If he wishes in this conditions to play html5 he will have to go to "big mac menue" on the left side of the bar, choose supplemental components, - plugins - set flash to "never start" and reload the page. Now it should work as expected.
He (a.k.a. 'me') did indeed have flash set to 'always ask' so I tried this suggestion and disabled it ('never start'). I restarted firefox just in case that might matter. Still no joy.
Both with and without flash enabled the page chooses html5 by default (or so the page says), and displays the static picture of a monarch butterfly sitting on some mammal's nose or such, but clicking to play just still overlays the picture with 'Sorry, you need Flash to play this'.
More ideas please. Thanks.
FWIW, this is firefox 51.0.1 openSUSE version on 42.1.
He :-) (sorry) Do you have also noscript installed? If yes, set it to allow all. In my case 42.2 the video plays if(!) I do allow several scripts. They may also trackers and similar. So If you have other plugins installed, try to simply open this with all plugins deactivated to see if one of them interfears.
It is a coala playing with a monarch and a funny music.
LOL, today I am dyslexic for sure. Sorry, interfere not intefear, I fear. They may also "use" trackers.
Finally you can also uninstall the flashplayer to see if it plays. If it does, you may reflect if you really need this shitty piece of software.....
