After Firefox update to 40.0, Youtube started using HTML5?

Posted

Because I want video quality options, I want to go back to flash player. How to restore it back to flash? If possible without addon?

PS: There is no button on youtube.com/html5 to choose between flash and html5

ok, if it cannot be solved with the html5 player then maybe an addon like the following will help: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/youtube-flash-video-player/

Not much has changed Screenshot Still, HTML5 giving two options 360 or 720p. Both values are true now. I have toggled only media.mediasource.enabled.
