>Synopsis:      The Otter
>Category:      User
>Environment:
        System      : OpenBSD 6.1
        Details     : OpenBSD 6.1 (GENERIC.MP <http://generic.mp/>) #26:
Wed Dec 13 16:36:16 MST 2017

[hidden email]:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC.MP
<http://generic.mp/>

        Architecture: OpenBSD.amd64
        Machine     : amd64
>Description:
        The Otter Browser cannot play videos such as at YouTube
>How-To-Repeat:
        Go to YouTube and try to play a video. You will get an error
message.
>Fix:
        The fix is to install gstreamer1-plugins-good-1.* and
        gstreamer1-plugins-libav-1.*
        as root do the following:
        # export
PKG_PATH=https://mirrors.syringanetworks.net/pub/OpenBSD/6.1/packages/amd64/
        # pkg_add gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.31p18v0.tgz
        and
        # pkg_add gstreamer1-plugins-libav-1.10.4.tgz
        The above is only an example. Your OpenBSD system may have
different versions.

        The Otter-Browser will now play videos.

SENDBUG: Run sendbug as root if this is an ACPI report!
