Screenshot of bug on imgur website

I've got "libavcodev may be vulnerable or is not supported, and should be updated for play video" message, when I'm trying to play any mp3/mp4 file with firefox. In dev console it prints "The video on this page can’t be played. Your system has an unsupported version of libavcodec". URL for example:

But it's not true, I have recent versions of all packages. I've searched how to fix it in google and this bugzilla, but I haven't found anything gentoo-related. Also I've tried to test an empty firefox profile, but got the same issue.

Comment 1 Andrey 2017-03-31 18:42:01 UTC
I fixed the issue by removing the libav and installing the ffmpeg package. So you could close the bug, if you want.
