Subject: epiphany-browser: No sound right away playing HTML 5 (?) video from mozilla.org.
Package: epiphany-browser
Version: 2.29.6-1
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***

Dear Debian folks,

I tried to play a video from the Mozilla website [1], where on the
bottom left it links to [2].

Clicking on the link pointing to [2] some kind of player appears but no
sound is playing. On the bottom right of the player there is also a red
cross showing it is muted. Clicking on it (unmute) there is still no
sound. Clicking on it again (red cross is shown) I can then hear the

I do not even now where this player comes from and if it is from the
Mozilla guys if this is a bug in the Mozilla player or Epiphany.

Sound is working otherwise on the whole system. I did not see any error
messages printed to the terminal.
