Plugins lists 3 plugins: Primetime CDM, OpenH264, and Widevine CDM. I click "check to see if your plugins are up to date", and it says no plugins were found.

Also, I have OpenH264 and Widevine set to Never Activate, and Primetime set to Always Activate. Also I have Play DRM Content checked. But when I try to play a video on netflix, the page stays blank and at the top of the screen it says "You must enable DRM" Huh? I thought that Netflix on windows firefox used Primetime CDM, and I have it enabled... When you ask Netflix support they say "try using Chrome browser" ...

hi, netflix uses google's widevine drm module to playback media content. so if you have set it to "never activate" in firefox, you won't be able to stream video content there.

Netflix help refers to the Adobe Primetime CDM. Did they used to use it and now they switched to Widevine?
