I’ve recently noticed that my 360 videos no longer work under FF for Android,
I checked and noticed that the problem lies in the video textures not working properly,
also noticeable in the video texture demo.
See official demos, currently not working on my S8, Android 9, FF 99.2.0
That’s really interesting! I had noticed this on my project awhile ago, but it seemed to be fixed when I started making additional changes to make it more compatible with iOS. I’ll take a look at the tutorial and my project and see if I can spot what differences causes it to work.

I confirmed that my projects are still working on Firefox Mobile 99.2.0. After a bit of testing with the tutorial projects, it seems like it’s a problem with my old Firefox nemesis RGB textures. I was consistently able to break and fix the textures on the tutorial project (On FF Mobile) by changing the generated texture to use RGBA instead of RGB like this:
Strange that I got it to work on my LG G8 with what appeared to be a normal framerate. But using Browserstack for a Samsung Galaxy S9, I can definitely see what you’re experiencing. My projects also fail on that device. I’ll keep digging to see what the difference there is.
Alright, so I am a bit baffled on this one. I just realized that Browserstack is only running FF 96.1.1, so testing there really isn’t very useful. I’m mostly thrown off by my phone (LG G8 - Android 11) working with the video projects without issue running FF 99.2.0 regardless of the speed of the texture upload. Here’s what I get:
I promise it looks better in person, but still even uploading every frame instead of every other frame like I normally do shows the video without issue. I’ve looked through my settings to see if I could find anything funny, and I know I haven’t messed with the flags on mobile.
Over the next few days, I’ll see if I can find a bit more time to take another look.
Figured I would bump this for anyone out there with an Android device using Firefox. My phone is currently using 100.1.2, and the tutorial as well as my projects still work.
Unfortunately, Browserstack has still not updated to the latest release, so I’m not sure if it’s my somehow magical phone, or if there were any updated to texture writing on their end. Can anyone take a look?
