MGA8-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50 in Dutch
No installation issues.
Ref bug 29777 for using konqueror to test.
Youtube video plays OK, newspaper site is OK with thext and pictures, but video fail, see e.g. https://www.standaard.be/cnt/dmf20220131_94310556
When I click on the video, there flashes a message "Sorry ......" on the screen, but to quickly to read. On the CLI I get at that moment:
[8561:13:0131/150517.502665:ERROR:batching_media_log.cc(38)] MediaEvent: {"error":"FFmpegDemuxer: no supported streams"}

That's to be expected.  Fedora patched out a lot of the ffmpeg stuff.
Comment 4 Morgan Leijström 2022-01-31 15:35:43 CET
Testing the failing site of comment 2 before updating:

I see the Sorry.. message (also here too quickly vanishing) and the last lines from "VIDEOJS" and on are the same. Different lines in between.

So I would say that is not a regression of qtwebengine.

Comment 5 Thomas Andrews 2022-02-04 21:42:11 CET
@Herman: Since it appears that the issue you saw is "to be expected," and existed before the update so "is not a regression," do you have any objection to an OK for this? Did you see any other issues?
