I've made some progress, this is a HTML5 problem within Firefox.
Gstreamer is used by firefox to play the content, looks like there was
a missing gstreamer plugin.

I've installed all the plugins and now the player plays (before it
didn't play at all) but I don't have any sound.

I've have disabled gstreamer in the firefox build and that works
(firefox reverts to flash)
