YouTube playback and internet videos doesn't work for me on pi 4 with Manjaro ARM KDE plasma edition

Hi guys everything is in the title, I tried with chromium and Firefox same result, every time I try to play a video on YouTube or everywhere I have a black screen, nothing else.. Could someone tell me how I can get this problem fixed? Thank you so much.

Same here on R-Pi4-4Gig in Firefox
uname -a returns 4.19.108-1-MANJERO-ARM #1 PREEMPT
pacman says I'm up to date.
Firefox 74.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Manjaro ARM manjaro-1.0
Add-ons Manager ! "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems will be installed shortly" Never actually happens.
Tracking this for an answer.

Up until a couple of days ago firefox and youtube worked well on KDE (even that kernel and program versions you have installed) when I tested the new 4.19 and 5.6 kernels I built. Since then I uninstalled KDE and installed Mate in my image so I can not test KDE at this moment to see if it is still good.

One thing is I am pretty certain of is you are not up to date and you are not using the new mirrors.

[ray@rpi4 ~]$ pacman -Ss firefox | grep installed
extra/firefox 75.0-1 [installed]
[ray@rpi4 ~]$ 
[ray@rpi4 ~]$ pacman -Ss linux-rpi4
