Right now when RDD process crashes we restart it without any limit. That leads to many crashes / browser freeze etc. We need to set a threshold and throw a decoding error when it's hit.

Add media.rdd-process.max-crashes preference value to control how many times we restard RDD process before we throw decoding error message.

Hi Martin! Is this something that QA can manually verify, if so can you please provide us STR?

You can kill RDD process from terminal (kill -11 RDD_process_PID) until Firefox throws a message "media can't be played". You're supposed to do so twice and then Firefox should throw 'Unable to play media' message.
