FIREFOX LEGACY

 

Unfortunately current AVD will stop working in Firefox 57 which is now in the beta and will be released on November 14, 2017.

Current AVD requires functions which Mozilla developers will remove since Firefox 57.

Our developers already building an entirely new AVD application from scratch in order to support Firefox 57 and another popular browsers.

Despite some difficulties with migrating old AVD code its main functional related to downloading process is already finished.

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.

Current AVD version should still works fine in all Firefox versions below 57 despite marking by Mozilla as LEGASY add-on.

    "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."

    Could you be more specific here. Are saying it will be published in time before November 14th or is that still up in the air?

    New AVD will be published in time right after Firefox 57 release.

    But some parts of functional still are under development and may be not ready to the release date.

    We still have problems with built-in player due to changes made by Mozilla since Firefox 55 and some streaming format types.

    Thats why this features may be postponed and will be added in future AVD releases.

    But main functional for such popular resources like YouTube is ready and will be published in time.

    As long as it can detect and download 1080p/4k videos from websites I am fine with that as the most basic functionality

    Most videos from YouTube and websites where video stored as single stream will be supported in simplest AVD functionality.

    Obviously we won't immediately get the video player back in this planned update for the Firefox 57 release, but is there some sort of time frame we can expect for the video player to come back? I'm hoping for Late November or early December, but it'll take as long as it takes - just curious.

    In case if the release of the new AVD version for the Firefox 57 will pass without any serious problems, our developers will return to the player at the end of the year.

    Since the player for the new browser will also have to be developed from scratch, unfortunately it is not a priority task atm.

    Will the new AVD built in player be using HTML5?

    Implementation of the built-in player is the most actual question after release of the new AVD version for Firefox 57 atm.

    Due to reducing and further refusal of supporting Flash by Mozilla our developers are also planning to migrate to HTML5.

    They are also consider the possibility of using a third-party application for these purposes, which will be installed separately by the users request with converter like it made in current version.
