YouTube offers many different formats, in their attempt to make things
work. See https://www.youtube.com/html5 for information about how
YouTube support matches up with what your browser supports. As far as
I can tell, Twitter uses only H.264 video encoding.

If that YouTube page shows that you're missing H.264 support (which is
my guess), this page may help:

Other googling I've done indicates that adding plugins to Gstreamer
may help.
