Leave it be. I thought it was about a self-help DVD for some of the crustier forum members.

Hi all,

I've received a reply from the developer about future support for SeaMonkey. His response sounded positive; he said that he'll look into the possibility of including support for SeaMonkey whilst making some planned code revisions in his next release of FlashVideoReplacer Cool

For those who are interested, I am attaching our exchange of e-mail. If I get any more news from the developer, I will update this thread.

Thanks very much for your quick reply.

This is great news... I appreciate that you will look into possibly providing support for SeaMonkey. Smile I will share this with the Puppy Linux community.

if you're using gnome-mplayer as the default media player, and have a frugal install, it's a good idea to move the hidden /root/.cache/gnome-mplayer folder onto your harddrive and then symlink it back.

this stops the cache filling up your savefile.

Eathray,

Thanks for informing us about this plugin.

I would suggest changing the subject of this topic so that it identifies more clearly what it is.
Newly Discovered Video Assistance for Winded Old Junkers does not really describe, this is about a plugin for Firefox, that replaces Flash Player.


Done

It's still missing the critical information that it is for playing Flash videos.

The author has removed Flash video replacer from Mozilla's website.
However, there's still hope.

PostPosted: Tue 31 Jul 2012, 09:34    Post subject: I have tried  

I have tried to build both of these with no success. I have a seemingly proper build environment, as I build my own wifi driver from source, the ati/amd *.run file and virtualbox *.run files all built on my machine.

It isn't that I "hate" flash, and someone pointed out that 11.2 will get security updates; however, the long sited view is that we need something that works because 11.2 will fail to run on some sites at some point in the future.

But isn't it for Flash in general, not specifically Youtube?
That's shocking if they've bullied him into withdrawing it.
There appear to be some alternatives that people might be interested in:

Firefox extensions are installed into your firefox profile, which has a unique name, so you won't really be able to make a .pet out of it. But you could just provide the .xpi, if it installed without being extracted, or if not you could conceivably reassemble it into an .xpi, or could just .zip it up and people could install it by manually extracting it into their profile.

Possibility 1: The extension will just be one of the folders in your firefox profile's extension folder, which is normally somewhere like /root/.mozilla/firefox/wud7nhh6.default/extensions (where wud7nhh6 is a string unique to your profile). Note the files/folders with a . at the front are hidden by default, and if your filer is Rox you can show them by clicking the eye button. You will need to identify the right folder for the extension by looking at the contents of e.g. the install.js files (you can open these in a text editor, or I guess you could use Pfind to search for files containing the name of the plugin).

Possibility 2: The extension is an unextracted .xpi folder in your firefox profile's extension folder. Again, you might be able to identify which one by searching for files containing the name of the plugin.

If you're having trouble finding the right file/folder, let us know and maybe we can help some more.

I've installed flashblock and user agent switcher .xpi files by dragging them to the browser and following the install prompts. If they're not compatible with a browser, they generally won't install.

Dewbie, I'm not sure what your point is. Some .xpis are just copied into the extensions folder when you install them, but others are extracted as a subfolder. In the latter case you would need to rebuild the .xpi if you didn't keep a copy. An .xpi is a zip, but I'm not sure if it has a checksum or some metadata or what...

Unless it's just that they used to be extracted as a subfolder, and any that are still in a subfolder must have been installed years ago...

If you want to rebuild extensions, you can also try FEBE or Zippy Extension Packager. Smile

(I haven't tried either, so I don't know how well they work. But they do claim to do the job.)
