Is there a newer version of this add-on with a number above 4.2?
Assignee: nobody → jorge
Yes. They created a version 4.3, that is currently available at: http://www.cuevana.tv/player/plugins/cstream-4.3.xpi
They have also asked us if we would be willing to host their extension inside AMO.
Their extension is legal in their country (I think), but I don't think it would pass our current copyrighted content policies, unfortunately.
The add-on version is (hard) blocked now in production: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked/i142 Removing security flag, since this is very public and the block points to this bug.
