I suppose https://www.dailymotion.com is amongst the video sites that can't be used in TFF?
I've tried quite every tricks and advices I could find (https://github.com/classilla/tenfourfox/wiki/AAATheFAQ#should-i-turn-mediasource-extensions-mse-on etc.) — except for installing QuickTimeEnabler, as it's not clear to me if it's still needed or a remain for older versions of TFF?
Youtube works, even if it stutters on my Mini G4 1.25 GHz.
I've been using TFF at least since v17 and never needed using video sites on it, but recently I had a mail from the French administration pointing to Dailymotion without any other explanation... Luckily, I could play it on my Intel Mac, but if there's any possibility on the G4, might be interesting.
So, the final question is: should I bother installing QuickTimeEnabler or won't it work anyway?

Thanks for this unique browser that keeps our old machines (quite) up-to-date! ;-)

    Unfortunately I think the problem on Dailymotion is that it only offers videos in H.264, which is not supported as a video format by TenFourFox. It's possible to do this, but would require more work right now than I (as a solitary developer) can devote to it. If there is a Flash-based alternative you might see if SandboxSafari can view the videos: http://www.floodgap.com/software/sandboxsafari/

    Thank you. You're already doing an amazing job! :-)
    That computer being mainly used by my 85 year old mother, I think I'll leave it alone for now, hoping this video messages will stay rare.
