I'm using Fedora 29 cinnamon. I can watch all the Youtube videos I want to, but if I go to Udemy using either Chromium or Firefox my instructors videos won't play. I've searched high and low for software to install can't find an answer on the net. I've looked in the repositories and DNF doesn't show anything to install. I could understand if it was one browser or the other but both won't play. I was using Fedora 28 Xfce and everything was working just fine, I only had FF then.

Here's an oddity, I just installed VLC player and now Udemy works, I needed something that was in that install.
