I have the same issue with the Tor Browser and GNU IceCat as well. What's interesting: when exactly the same folder of TB is copied to a VM with latest Debian, video works fine.

It seems to be related to H.264:
* https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html : H.264 clip cannot be played
* https://www.youtube.com/html5 : H.264 and MSE & H.264 are listed as not supported
* about:support in address bar -> Graphics shows "Hardware H264 Decoding: No; Failed to create H264 decoder"
