I wonder whether this is a Tor Browser issue in general as there is nothing that jumps at me immediately looking at our 5.5 changelog. Can you try with 5.5 outside of a Tails context?

Probably about missed mp4 plugin for gstreamer (see #17970).

Indeed, I bet this is a duplicate of #17970, aka. "no mp4 support in Tor Browser on recent Linux distros due to building against an obsolete version of GStreamer". I think this ticket can be closed as such.

angelotheram: please use Tails support channels ( for reporting Tails problems.
