Description Randall 2022-04-25 01:37:23 UTC
I can't seem to figuire out how to make epiphany play any videos on YouTube or Vimeo (maybe others too, but I didn't try).

Perphaps there's as missing gstreamer plugin?

Reproducible: Always

This probably is related; Spotify doesn't work as well. Upon signing in, it load an error "Enable secure playback in your browser".

In my case it takes some seconds to start playing... but it ends up playing them properly. I tested on youtube with latest epiphany and webkit-gtk
