Fixing Firefox Video Playback in Fedora 37
After upgrading to Fedora 37, I noticed that some videos in
Firefox were no longer playing. Instead, the error code 224002 was displayed. I have been using Fedora for years and
have never encountered this problem. After some research, it was looking like I should enable the OpenH264 Video Codec
in the plugin manager and wait for it to download.
Done and done… Except the codec was not downloading no matter how long I waited. Restarting,
deactivating/re-activating the video code was also not helping. Turns out that the fix is to install the
mozilla-openh264 package yourself:
sudo dnf install mozilla-openh264
Not a big deal, but could have done without the deceptive messaging, Firefox.
