Youtube 360º videos

Unread post by SLotman » 2018-10-01, 12:41

I don't know if this is a new issue, or an old one. I just tried to watch a 360º video on Youtube, and it doesn't work on Palemoon - at first it shows the video 'stretched', not even showing the controls to 'pan around'.

I then tried this user agent string from Opera, and it worked for a couple of seconds... then I couldn't do anything not even pausing / resuming the video worked anymore. After tabbing out and back in, I was able to close the tab, and that was it.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/63.0.3239.132 Safari/537.36 OPR/50.0.2762.67

I also tried the UAS from the latest firefox, the video rendered correctly, but no controls on screen.

This is the video I was trying to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99_VQRURay8

Is this a known issue? I tried searching before posting, but nothing related showed up.

This video works just fine for me using PM28.1.0@Win7.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Can you guys rotate the view?

Here it shows like this - which is wrong:

It should look like this: (this is how Opera / Firefox shows it)

Note that the controller on the top left doesn't even appear in the first image.

Yes, and the control on the top left is displayed for me.

I think I found the problem: I had "plugins.rewrite_youtube_embeds;true" in my config. Set it to false, now video is working as it should.

For me YT360 videos works regardless of the "plugins.rewrite_youtube_embeds" state (default is true).
