OpenH264 not loading
OpenH264 addon is not loading when "enabled" on Firefox-esr 68.9.0 version
It states that it is enabled but with a warning note to say - it will be installed shortly!
Wifi is active and waited days with no response.
Is there a problem with Mozilla license to install it?
I am running it on a Raspbian OS base.
Can anyone help me with this problem.
You can search the Raspberry forum site.
Thanks Cor-el for your quick reply. However, I am puzzled by the reference to the links which refer to the installation of CDM Widevine on the raspberry pi.
I assume, you are indicating that you need to have the Widevine plugin installed before the OpenH264 plugin can be downloaded? Is this correct?
I am using a RPi 3B running Raspbian/Buster. I am running the FF latest install, for this platform, which is version 68.9.0esr. The addons page has no ext for enabling Widevine program to run, however, a Windows Laptop with the same version does and therefore loads the OpenH264. Are we missing something obvious here?
As FF is the only Browser available for the RPi with the WebRTC APIs built-in, can you assist with instructions as to how we can enable WebRTC access with my current PC platform?
Thank you reading this and hope you can help us and many others with the same problem.
The OpenH264 plugin is normally used for WebRTC.
The Widevine plugin is used for playing DRM protected media content via the HTML5 media player.
Since you didn't write what content this is about then I don't know if you really need the OpenH264 plugin.
Best is to ask advice at the RPi forum as they should no more about issues with installing theses plugins in current Firefox releases.
