Description

Currently Bug 1343442 created an automatic detection and eventual bug report for the Nightly population to webcompat.com

Webcompat team met with Anthony Jones at San Francisco All Hands and we decided to put it on hold for a little while. The time to figure out if the already collected data are useful to the video team and possibly find a better process to handle them on both sides. 

We don't want to erase the code on both sides (Firefox and webcompat.com), but just put it on hold. So on Firefox side, it would mean the users do not get anymore the notification of the issue.

We could possibly re-enable it later to collect more data.

Bug 1377338 - Stop showing 'Report Site Issue' notification on media errors -

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/153566/#review158732

can't we just reduce the amount reported, like just the metadata one, now that we're switching the rust demuxer on?

Thank you for the review Jean-Yves.

The thinking is that we already have so much data to sort through, and always more data coming in (mostly metadata errors anyway!), that it's not worth continuing "firehosing" webcompat at the moment.

It may be possible to reduce notifications to only rust-vs-stagefright issues, but it would require a bit more work -- Let's discuss this soon, and we can choose to restart this system, with a tighter selection of errors, at a later stage...
