[Decoder Doctor] WMF-missing console message is misleading on Windows XP
58 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
When attempting to play an H.264/AAC/MP4 file on Windows XP, the following warning is shown in the console: "To play video formats video/mp4; codecs="avc1.42E01E mp4a.40.2", video/mp4, you need to install extra Microsoft software, see https://support.mozilla.org/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows" However unlike Windows Vista+, XP does not have the option to add Microsoft software to handle these formats. So we should not show this console message. Maybe another one? TBD. Note that the drop-down notification bar is not shown, as expected.

On Windows XP (and others before Vista), if WMF is required to play a format, the console message should not refer to Microsoft software as it is not available there.
