I'm using the newest unkeyworded version of Firefox-35

Cisco's H264 plugin is present and set to always enabled.

However, it's not being accepted as being enabled, and playback of H264 fails. Here's Youtube's html5 page (https://www.youtube.com/html5): http://i.imgur.com/PupZdEq.png

What's the magic incantation so the H264 plugin actually gets used?

Yes, and it's listed as enabled. It has no MIME types associated however. Should it have?

Ok, turns out that Cisco's plugin can't even do any useful playback. It's just there for the WebRTC stuff.

See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1057646

To get H264 to work, one is forced to use gstreamer. Sigh. Ok, after enabling that useflag, it works.
