Notes

Firefox supports H.264 on Windows 7 and later since version 21. Firefox supports H.264 on Linux since version 26 if the appropriate gstreamer plug-ins are installed.

Partial support for older Firefox versions refers to the lack of support in OS X & some non-Android Linux platforms.

  1. The Android 2.3 browser requires specific handling to play videos.

  2. Partial supports refers to the lack of hardware acceleration.

Bugs

  • Chrome has performance problems with long h.264 videos.

  • Browsers have trouble with more than one audio track in a video (for multi-language support): IE 11 supports it, Firefox plays the last track, Chrome plays the first track.

  • In Windows 7, the maximum supported resolution is 1920 × 1088 pixels for both software and DXVA decoding. MSDN).
