Description of problem:
Firefox from the Mageia v6 dev1 x86-64 Classical ISO with a KDE installation cannot play .webm or YouTube files. I already installed the updates, and even tried enabling the tainted repositories and installing task-codec-audio and task-codec-video - still happens.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the KDE desktop.
2. Start Firefox.
3. Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruxmWBHCGn4 or tohttp://www.shlomifish.org/Files/files/video/ and try to play the .webm files.
Steps to Reproduce:
plays ok for me in Mageia-6-dev1-LiveDVD-PLASMA5-x86_64-DVD - installed system
[no flash-player-plugin installed]
Could someone from QA or packagers try to investigate? This has the potential to be an important issue.
I'm using Firefox on Plasma/cauldron daily and haven't noticed any such issue. I'll try with the links given above though.

I think we need to test from a fresh installation. Maybe a missing dependency.
No flash player is available initially so it'll use html5 and require relevant codecs installed, possibly from tainted.
FWIW works fine here, too.
Can you check whether https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15043#c25 helps?
Also the output of "rpm -qa|sort|grep gstreamer" might be helpful.

Yes, I'll get to it.
With the recent classic x86-64 DVD -dev1 snapshot in a VBox VM, I can play the YouTube file in the link (though the sound is very low), but I cannot play a regular HTTP-served .webm file such as:
(short URL : http://is.gd/12jWx1 )
it says the file is corrupt.
I'll attach my rpm-qa soon.

With the recent classic x86-64 DVD -dev1 snapshot in a VBox VM, I cannot play either the video in question on YouTube or view a .webm file from the /video/ directory on my site. See:

mga6 dev1 rpm -qa output with selecting KDE as the desktop
This is the Â«rpm -qaÂ» output inside the VM.
Adding the 6dev1 keyword.
Assigning to all packagers collectively, since there is no maintainer for this package.
It might be wise to wait investigating till the new QA 6sta1 isos are released... maybe this got somehow fixed with firefox-45.1.0?
still happens with a classic DVD i586 KDE install of 6sta1.
The plot thickens - this video plays fine in the latest sta1 x86-64 plasma5 LiveDVD - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPNTC7uZYrI - while the other videos still exhibit the problem.
