Is the plugin "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc." supposed to come with firefox?
I recently reinstalled Firefox on my computer and there is now a plugin called "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.". I have used Firefox for quite some time and have never seen this. Is this supposed to be there. Does it come with the Firefox download now?
hello DuckBilledPlatypus, yes this is a legitimate plugin that was first introduced in firefox 33. for some technical background on it you can see: http://andreasgal.com/2014/10/14/openh264-now-in-firefox/Read this answer in context 👍 112

Thanks Philipp! I'm sure you have to answer the question all the time now.
My options for this plug-in are "Always Activate" and "Never Activate". Any reason why "Ask to Activate" isn't available at this time?
SCloud, the plugin isn't intended to be used for website content at the moment, but only for webrtc video communication - so i guess the "ask to activate" option doesn't make sense in this context.
philipp - Thank you for your rapid reply. I had assumed the same based on some reading I did after posting the question. I changed mine to "Never Activate" at this time.
