I just tried, and yes, for ca. 1 second I saw moving picture and heard
the sound. Then the screen went blank (grey).
When I tried CNN Live Video, the following error message appeared:

UNSUPPORTED PLATFORM ERROR:
This video is not supported on the current platform (browser/operating
system). For technical issues, use the FAQ

The fact that I could see the chosen clip for a second or so makes me
think that exclusion of Firefox/Linux is deliberate. I'm sure someone on
this list knows more about this...

I'm running F8 x86_64 on a desktop box with IcedTea Java and Flash
plugins. Youtube and many others providing video clips work just fine.
