    Problems with Firefox (81) and video after reloading 20.04

    Due to really dorking my system up I reloaded 20.04.1 (except my home directories). I did not do updates while reloading because that caused problems on one attempt. After getting the system reloaded, I ran the Software Updater to get to the most current versions of programs. When I went to Youtube, I kept getting messages that Firefox did not support the video format. One Youtube channel in particular I go to is Lab Padre since I am a SpaceX fan on which I get the video message.

    What am I missing. It would seem that there is some dependency that is not being met. However, I don't know how to figure out what it is.

    Thanks CelticWarrior. Unfortunately that didn't work as I had no Flash player installed. I did another web search (I don't google) and found the answer:

    >sudo apt install libavcodec-extra

    After doing this and restarting Firefox all is good.
