AVD BUILT-IN PLAYER IN FIREFOX 55

Unfortunately since Firefox 55 Mozilla made changes in Flash plugin support and some file formats, including MP4, are unsupported by AVD built-in player for now.

Our developers already working on new AVD application with improved player to support future Firefox releases.

You still can find all downloaded videos in the Ant Videos folder and play them with help of some third-party media player like VLC: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

We keep trying to find any solution for this issue but at the moment the only way to fix AVD built-in Player is to downgrade Firefox to the version 54 or below and disable auto updatete.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope for your understanding.

    I have noticed that there was an AVD update recently on the 3rd Oct 2017. Unfortunately, my AVD still doesn't play back videos.I have tried all suggestions but to no avail.

    I have had success in downgrading Firefox version back to version 54.0.1 from 55.0.3 ....... after doing this, I at least can play my videos using the inbuilt player - but there are still are a few playback glitches.

    Wondering when the new AVD application will be available to us ?

    Please note that last AVD version was released at April 6, 2017.

    Unfortunately some features related to AVD functional became deprecated since Firefox 55 and most of video formats are unsupported by AVD built-in player for now.

    Despite some difficulties with migrating old AVD code its main functional related to downloading process is already finished and ready for the Firefox 57 release at the middle of November.

    If new AVD will not be fully finished in time to the Firefox 57 release it will be published without some features which will be added later.
