t  Adding more confusion to the whole thing, I updated to 112.0_1,2 yesterday
and now many youtube videos lack audio, but not all. 112.0,2 seemed to work
fine. I have media.cubeb.backend set to OSS on a recent build of FreeBSD 14
(head). firefox was build from source with SNDIO, ALSA enabled. Of course, OSS
is always present. All ports are current as of about 10:15 UTS today (Arp-9).

If I play some new video, silence, but playing an older video, I get sound.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwLRQn61oUY has audio. 7 years old.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3QKXViWwZQ no audio. 8 days old.

I downloaded the files and both were webm with OPUS audio streams. muediainfo
shows identical audio characteristics. If I play the audio files, both played.

I'll admit that this is a rather small sample and I am not a heavy YouTube
user, so additional testing is needed and I will try to do some today.

I am suspicious that some dependency of Firefox was updated and that is the
actual trigger, but I can't see what.
