This page contains information on the Cisco OpenH264 firefox plugin.

Background

Cisco provides a binary version of a OpenH264 plugin for firefox. This plugin is needed for WebRTC along with other H264 decoding. This binary is released under this agreement from Cisco: http://www.openh264.org/BINARY_LICENSE.txt

Upstream firefox versions download and install this plugin by default automatically. Due to it's binary nature, Fedora disables this automatic download.
