It looks like that the feature "Send Video to Device" is broken on non-e10s and has always been broken on e10s. Also, it's disabled by default, but it's still showing up as a disabled entry in everyone's menus.

We're removing sync IPC and CPOWs from the context menu (bug 1360406), and this is the last remaining CPOW, which is non-trivial to make it not use CPOWs.

The easiest solution here is to remove support for it in the Desktop front-end. The backend code for it can remain, as Android is using it too (although it's unclear to me whether it works or not).

If anyone misses it, it could be readded to the UI in the future with a cleaner, e10s-ready implementation.
