Safe to Force-Enable media hardware video decoding? (about:config)

Posted

In XP 32-bit, If H.264 video failed to decode in Firefox (but not in Chrome, though Chrome stutters).....

....is it safe to Force-Enable media hardware video decoding in About:Config?

(in other words, to toggle it from "false" to "true"?

That won't likely not have any effect.

Firefox relies on built-in OS support to play media files via the HTML5 media player. On the Windows XP platform you do not have native support for playing MP4 files with the HTML5 media player.

You can try if the solution posted here to add support for playing MP4 files works for you.
