All YT videos (as far as I know) is also available in mp4 format on their servers. Why they decided to go with .webm only viewing which requires newer and newer browsers to play it, is unfortunate. They should enable mp4 streaming from their servers.


Probably mp4 doesn't support their live videos.

You can stream it with your default mediaplayer, see my above post. All you need is the correct download link. So, one can actually stream live YT videos in mp4 format even when using a very old browser (just going to take a few more clicks).

Bigpup,

Bigpup, what version of palemoon?

I'm not too thrilled about using PaleMoon instead of FF Quantum. As I recall, my preferred virtual keyboard did not work in PM's browser address field. There was also the issue of PM not having a standard YT downloader add-on.

What is the highest version to which Tahrpup 605's PM 25.8.1 will update?

Forget PaleMoon.
The newest one has issues in Tahrpup 6.0.5
I was using it in Xenialpup64 7.5 with no problems.
Sorry for bad info!

PaleMoon 28.1.0 will work in Tahrpup 6.0.5, but video is a problem.

For the record, s243a brings up a very valid point that the video itself is mp4, and can be played-back as such. But .webm recodes this so that not just anyone can play back a 'universal file'.

My Firefox27 has had interesting problems over the past 3 years with Google/YouTube. Now its at the point where only an old add-on can circumvent the restriction of playback with a direct download, then playback. I have a HTML5 addon for YT that now does not work. But the Downloader still does.

After all, this IS a mp4 file. There is no reason why a browser capable of mp4 playback cannot access and playback the video. This is just plain 'dark' greed/manipulation bare naked. /rant

Actually, youtube videos are stored in.webm, mp4 and mobile format. Check my how to (in the how to section) to stream videos if you have an old browser.

nic007,
Nope, streaming as you suggest did not play the URL I provided for both your approaches. Came close using VLC, but produced a page of errors.


Code:
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'https://r3---sn-5ualdn7s.googlevideo.com/videoplayback?fvip=3&ratebypass=yes&itag=18&dur=312.354&clen=7518968&ei=326tW9HrCZz1j-8PqrOg6AQ&initcwndbps=1336250&source=youtube&requiressl=yes&ipbits=0&lmt=1481294790664061&sparams=clen%2Cdur%2Cei%2Cgir%2Cid%2Cinitcwndbps%2Cip%2Cipbits%2Citag%2Clmt%2Cmime%2Cmm%2Cmn%2Cms%2Cmv%2Cpl%2Cratebypass%2Crequiressl%2Csource%2Cexpire&ms=au%2Conr&mv=m&mt=1538092629&id=o-ABlUIFryS_rvSlI3A-UC6ZTDX9ZVccuX4GU3I_QjmhKJ&gir=yes&pl=14&expire=1538114367&mn=sn-5ualdn7s%2Csn-p5qs7n76&mm=31%2C26&ip=172.72.33.129&c=WEB&mime=video%2Fmp4&key=yt6&signature=503287FE6BBC699DB78F216F314CDAA1634C62AA.12087F01AE8D939D4CB8A15F98AA3E3D524C16E3E3'. Check the log for details.


EDIT: VLC plays some (or most) YT videos, but not all. The error above comes from the URL provided in my second post of this thread. Making some progress.

Method 2 works for me with that url. Did you download the the zip file with the .lua file in my HOWTO post? BTW - Method 2 is always more likely to work as it is the actual download link.

Using method 2, all I get is a download dialog. No "Open in..." option. I can always download the vid. i want to view it first before I download it.

Right-click the download link for more options.

There are 3 "Open Link in...", but all three yield the download dialog.

What browser? Is your media player plugin working? Alternative way - select "copy link location" > open vlc > ctrl+v and enter.

"alternative" method is method 1?

FF Quantum 62.0.2

I know an online downloader that produces a preview.

Method 2 (alternative way to do it). Instead of "open in" select to copy the download link to clipboard like suggested and run vlc as mentioned in my previous post.

Y'know, not being funny, but I read several threads like this and I think to myself....."I don't understand the problem".

Granted, I'm not really a regular Firefox user; only occasionally will I spend a day with Quantum. My regular, daily browser is the last 32-bit version of Chrome, Chrome 48 (released 4 ½ years ago.)

I can watch YT vids till the cows come home. Not once do I ever get these problems that I see many others encountering.

Okay, I'm not really a 'downloader', either. I rarely find anything on YT that I actually want to watch more than once. Don't forget; YT has been owned by Google for years. They, of course, want you to stay on the site as much as possible.....which is why they put up as many barriers as they possibly can.

All in the name of 'improving your browser experience'. Hah!

(Not only that, but you cannot d/l YT stuff if you use Chrome, period. Google's 'developer policies' have had that baked into browser code for a long time. It's only the Mozilla family of browsers that will even offer YT downloaders.....and 'Big Brother' goes out of his way to f**k them up as fast as they're offered.)

I'm running Tahr 6.0.5 and FF Quantum 62.0.2 (32-bit) on a Dell Precision Dual Core with 4 GB ram. About a week ago, YouTube started refusing to play every other YT video, giving an HTML5 error. What has happened and how do I fix this?


Youtube and Quantum 62.0.2 (32-bit) work fine. Just delete your corrupt profile
