Description of the issue:
GIFs and videos do not play properly on most embedded sites. For example, when playing a video on Reddit, after the thumbnail goes away, the loading wheel pops up, goes away, the playtime starts counting seconds and the progress bar advances as normal, but the video is just a black screen. The same thing happens on news sites, or anywhere else that has embedded videos. Playing a video on YouTube directly works just fine. When I turn off hardware acceleration, the problem goes away, but causes the browser to behave so sluggishly that it is unusable.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Go to Reddit.com
- Find a GIF or video (ex: https://www.reddit.com/r/funny/comments/ej4d26/shronk/ )

Video would play and display normally
