I am struggling to view videos in Firefox 84 on Ubuntu 20.04.01 LTS. Various web sites (e.g. Peacock) tell me that they’re downloading extensions needed. The extension manager tells me that OpenH264 from Cisco and Widevine from Google are being installed, but neither ever completes its automatic installation (still stalled after several months). The auto-install process is otherwise opaque, so I have no idea why it is stuck. For all I know, my ISP is “protecting” me from whatever sites these downloads come from.
So I have come to Mozilla add-ons looking for these extensions so I can install them manually. I have been able to install other extensions from this site, so I more comfortable using it than debugging some stalled opaque automated process.
Unfortunately, the extension search function can’t find neither OpenH264 nor Widevine. Are they hidden under some other names? If they’re just not here, is it possible to upload them so those of us with auto-install failures have a work-around to pull them down and install them?
