we since with some sites they seem to be using a new option of streaming media to ram rather than disk so that would most likely be the reason.....just means more use of internet bandwidth really

yes-it works on my puppy with flash 10. But I'm using xine instead of mplayer. Somehow mplayer doesn't work.

I've got this back working so nicely that i had to share. using flash 10.

I'm using the seamonkey 2.0 browser, and installed the greasemonkey add on from:
http://xsidebar.mozdev.org/modifiedmisc.html#greasemonkey

also this youtube userscript which adds "&fmt=18" automatically to the end of each youtube url. what that does is download the file to your /tmp folder as mp4, rather then flv and it can now be opened in VLC. got the youtube userscript from:
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/29881

this in my opinion is the best way to do youtube. it's not cumbersome like those downloaders...nor do you have to experience the choppiness that we're all too familiar with.

i couldn't get it to work in xine, gxine, or mplayer.

playflash.pet + seamonkey/firefox + greasemonkey add on + youtube userscript + VLC = clear, easy, and fast youtube viewing.

maybe not too easy, but for people using linux....definitely not hard.

MU, a fantastic contribution. Its issues like this that really make a difference to your average computer user. Not only do you have the skills Mark you consistently apply them in the places theyre needed most! Flash is particularly troublesome and buggy on older computers essentially limits the lowest age at which a computer can become a useful to a family family.

Unfortunately, I also cannot get it working, but am happy to do an testing.

Using 4.3.1 standard, I installed the .pet from the first post. I reset X as per the instructions (ctrl-alt-backspace then xwin). When viewing youtube videos, gxine started (as well as the flash video on the youtube page), but the gxine after displaying "starting...) for a few seconds failed to play the video, with the play button subsequently becoming greyed out.

Keep up the good work mark, let me know if you need any more testing.

Rob

Ecomoney you tube now obfusticate the codec requirements of flv movies directly from many downloads to prevent mediaplayers working.
If the flv is downloaded using something like cclive or similar it works...or you can get the mp4......perhaps this idea needs reapproaching to deal with this.
Also as mentioned flash 10 can stream to ram so that there is no file in tmp on some sites. certainly there have been code changes on you tube as I'm getting crashes that did not used to happen. Sad .

How about a website that takes the you tube page and converts the code to present the video in a form suitable for media players using php or javascript

Cheers Mike

Lets hope youtube adopt open video standards soon and we can do away with flash altogether..doubt they will though as they have to tow the line to the music companies.

This is a similar project Yim has done to play movies using mplayer...I havnt tested it.

That would be www.kickyoutube.com. This is very elegant and simple, simply go to the address bar of the video you want to download and inster the word "kick" between the "http://www." and the "youtube.com/blah blah blah". Its does mp4 and mp3. Its something I show all my home clients.

I was wondering if there is a way to put some script that will automatically stop(break) playing the original flash video on the Internet page? I have to stop the original video every time and my laptop is very old. so it doesn't really respond right all the time when I try to stop the web page flash video....

This is not really what I am looking for:)
Sorry for my english Smile
I will try again:
I am using flashblock anyway. But for example : If I go to youtube and let the flasblock play my video, than after 5 seconds playflash let gxine play this video. Okey-now I have to stop the original video on youtube page, because otherwise I have 2 videos playing, and for all double sound. So. I was looking for someting, that would stop playing automaticly the video on the youtube or other viewed page.
I think there is a way to do it with greasemonkey (write some small script), but I am using opera....

Is it possible to make a static Firefox (3.x??) that runs an old version of flash (9.x??) so that I can use it on Slacko 5.6 to hold the flash file in /tmp like they used to in the old days?

I currently switch to an old version of puppy if I want to save flash files from /tmp (as Slacko 5.6 hides them somewhere else) but I would like to have the option of staying in Slacko 5.6 and running a different version of Firefox without worrying about it "infecting" or altering the usual Firefox (17.0.8 ESR) that is part of Slacko.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/firefox_namoroka-3.6.28-s.pet

That was compiled by me for thin slacko (you have that one). Should work OK. If you don't want to kill your current firefox, crack open the pet and move it to /opt/firefox (from /usr/lib/firefox) and adjust the scripts and icons accordingly.

Probably best to have one run as 'spot' so you don't corrupt the user profile. I have an old pet somewhere that does that, just do a search (actually it will run as any 'user' you want and link back to /mnt/home too).

If you put the plugin in firefox's own plugin folder rather than the shared mozilla you will probably find that works.
