    This works nicely for the flash content on youtube
    quvi & mplayer

    The html5 (webm) stuff still plays embedded in firefox with gecko-mplayer.

    Re: FlashVideoReplacer: replace flash video player with mplayer plugin (low CPU usage

    Unfortunately I had to removed the excellent flashvideoreplacer addon because since one week ago it doesn't work in youtube for my ancient pIII, 1GHz CPU and 512 MB ram.

    I think youtube has changed something in its page , so now I cannot play youtube videos with flashvideoreplacer.

    Instead I have installed greasymonkey addon in firefox and now using viewtube script (from userscripts.org) in order to watch flash videos in youtube with native mp4 player.

    In the future, could we see flashvideoreplacer working again?

    I coulkdn't get quvi to work, I'm probably missing something simple.
    I have found that this works pretty well for me regarding You Tube:

    http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/to...without-flash/

    So far I've only had to use the first command to get things to play. I use smplayer rather than mplayer as I like to see the time elapsed/left thingy.
    Some videos have seemed a little slowed down so I'm working on that.

    I expect that YMMV.

    Sad face....

    Now all I get is a bunch of nothing, or a 403 forbidden.
    Looks like the TC1000 is going in a cupboard somewhere.

    Elaborate on the problem with quvi..

    Note that terminal copy & paste is done with <ctrl>+<shift>+<c> & <ctrl>+<shift>+<v> respectively..

    Elaborate? Yeah, sure.

    This is the quvirc (I've probably got this wrong actually.......)

    Code:
    exec = "mplayer -framedrop -cache 10000 -cache-min 10 %u"
    format = fmt18_360p
    When I issue the command assuggested I get:
    Code:
    $ quvi "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDW_Hj2K0wo"
    :: Check for URL redirection ...done.
    :: Fetch config ...done.
    :: Verify media URL ...error: server response code 403 (conncode=0)
    I'm missing something simple I expect.

    I wrote that blog post on quvi. You're not missing anything as quvi is now broken for me, too. Same error. I guess Youtube made one of those changes that breaks every Youtube downloader under the sun and we'll have to wait for an update.

    That's to force us to watch adverts..
    Google flexing it's power..or making thing work better for mobile flash players.

    html5 (webm) still works for now.

    Unfortunately such workarounds are the only way I have any chance of successfully watching you tube on the TC100 (Compaq tablet from 2000/2001 I think, 1GHz Transmeta Crusoe CPU 486 Mb RAM.

    Just to let anybody here know, an updated quvi-scripts has migrated to Debian Testing. This should fix Youtube on quvi.

    EDIT: I meant libquvi-scripts.
