I can watch your video correctly with sound with firefox-26.0nb1 under
V8/V9/Vorbis codecs are built in firefox 26.0.
And if you want to play H.264 or other videos, you can use gstreamer 0.10
codecs to play H.264 or other videos. (But I have no idea what packages
enable H.264 video...)
If your video's progress bar cannot progress, pulseaudio does not
work properly in many cases.
$ pulseaudio --kill
$ pulseaudio --cleanup-shm
$ pulseaudio --start
may help you.
Or kill, cleanup-shm and reboot firefox.
And pulseaudio 2.1.nb12 or earlier is not stable, especially second
invocation of pulseaudio causes hang of pulseaudio.
You can confirm your pulseaudio version.
