Firefox 3.5 on OS X freezes and requires Force Quit on many attempt to encode from firefogg.org page.

Does not work
Upload of .flv file using Firefox 3.6.6 and firefogg build into upload form does not work for me. I get Transcode and upload in progress (do not close this window) 0% transcoded Time remaining: and the uploads never starts. --Jarekt (talk) 03:22, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
- Hmm, try using Miro Video Converter. It seems to have much better support. Mahanga (Talk) 16:35, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Removed from project page, section is inaccurate
This section is invalid. The upload page has no links to install firefogg with the media beta support enabled or disable, and does not accept arbitrary file type uploads.
Also, currently nowhere in the user's preferences is mwEmbed mentioned. It's instead called the multimedia beta support option.
Tip: Click the "enable mwEmbed gadget for all pages" button at the top of the page to enable firefogg gadget for all pages.
- This is still invalid. Interface:Other in my Preferences tab does not have anything about "multimedia beta support." Nor is it anywhere else under preferences. Does this mean I can just upload away once I convert? Daniel Case (talk) 15:09, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
hi, i just transcoded my first video using firefogg - just fine!
however, it shows a thumbnail which is misleading. in this case the still image shows the interpreter at a press conference, not the main persons talking. how can i change this? did firefogg do this? thanks, Maximilian (talk) 13:53, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

I have installed Firefogg on my Mozilla Browser (v 17.0.1.) picked a mp4 file an my pc and received the errror message "No media detected, can not convert this file". But I know this file is not corrupted. I imagine how many people are repelled by such technical problems from loading up their videos on Commons. My hope was to learn on this project site what file formats firefox can transcode. "it should support most files you have" - give aditionally a long list of files. For transcoding my videos with VLC I can't also find help on Commons. I am not a Mac or Linux guy, I can't work with command line instructions. I just wanted to load up my videos. --Bin im Garten (talk) 13:47, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
