How to play HD HTML5 youtube videos on Firefox & Iceweasel

You need to install this Firefox addon

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-all-html5/?src=api

Goto about:config

media.mediasource.enabled

change it to true.

Now you can play 720 HD html5 videos in iceweasel automatically after choosing the 720 HD option in addon and while the video is playing on youtube you can even change it to 1080 HD html5 without the need to install flash plugin. You can also disable flash plugin or block it using flashblock addon.

Thanks.

That add-on for YouTube/HTML5 is a very good one, I've been using it for about six months and include it in my puppy build. Its a good alternative for Flash. Now that HTML5 is taking hold, Flash will thankfully not be necessary by 2016.

Thanks way12go - works great.

Why doesn't the BBC use HTML5 for video?

Some users have asked why the BBC doesn't use an HTML 5 video player instead of Adobe Flash.

We are pleased to announce that we are currently working on an HTML 5 player for Apple devices, such as iPhones and iPads.

However, this does require a great deal of technical development work to our current systems and there are technical challenges around the ability to secure video streams in HTML 5. Please bear with us while we make these changes.


After their migration - Flash RIP AFAIC
