Embedded youtube playback problem

Postby mozart78 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 12:38 pm

Hello, I have a problem playing embedded youtube video. The video is here in this post:

http://forum.vwclub.bg/viewtopic.php?p=4521798#p4521798

When I try to play it, PM freezes for a while and than the video disappears. I tried with media.gstreamer.enabled;false and media.gstreamer.enabled;true. I tried to stop MSE, MP4 and WebM. And I tried with a clean new profile - all the same. In the meantime there aren't problems playing embedded phpbb videos in this forum with Opera and FF.

Looks like that forum is forcing Flash for their embedded videos. Enabling Flash allows the video to play, and from there I can watch it on YouTube in HTML5 with no issues.

Simply enable Flash player and reload the page. From there you can click the YT button in the player to watch the video on YouTube directly.

I create this topic because I want watch them embedded in the forum like FF, Opera and other browsers can. I know that they can be watched outside the forum :)

If that forum is forcing the viewers to use Flash, it stands to reason that you will have to also.
