I’m using Firefox 52.9.0 on Windows XP 32bit system and looking for help to continue playing website video tubes now that Adobe Flash Player is going away: 1. Is there a replacement ‘plug-in’ that I can install to continue playing videos on websites with flash video content? How to install and use? 2. Have noticed many of these sites moving to HTML5 or H.264 format for video tube stream, but my browser will not play these. Is there a compatible HTML5 and/or H.264 player that will enable my browser to play these? Or other way to enable play on my existing version of Firefox? How to install and use? Thank You!

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.
