Default Firefox (and Iceweasel) are unable to play Youtube videos

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello folks,

On another computer of mine, with Debian Lenny, same kernel
(2.6.26-2-686-bigmem), I am able to play Youtube videos and other
flash stuff, correctly. If there ``too much' Youtube tabs under FF
(or Iceweasel), it becomes really slow, does not respond anymore, and
I am obliged to kill its process. This situation is bearable, but, on
another computer, FF (or Iceweasel) stall(s) directly once I have
clicked on the `Play' icon on a Youtube video.

Both browsers play Flash stuff (if there are not too much tabs)
without any problem, and Youtube is apparently the only website whose
Flash causes trouble.

Any idea for this situation?

Thanks.

I have both `flash-plugin - Adobe Flash Player 10.0' on the two
computers. They are executing Iceweasel v. 3.0.6, and I also tried
with the up-to-date Firefox.

All the other flash-using websites work normally, except that it
stalls if I open too much tabs.

Thanks.

I have this one:
ii flashplugin-nonfree 1:2.8
running Sid on amd64.

Try with other browsers. Midori uses WebKit instead of Gecko, but it's
crash-prone. There's Opera (Presto), kazehakase's also Gecko... and
hell, there's IE.

Run firefox from a terminal, that way you'll see the errors when it crashes.

HTH,
Nuno

Iceweasel gives me, amongst the add-ons:
==
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r100
.
.
.
Windows Media Player Plug-in 10
==

I tried deactivating the last one (i.e. Windows MP stuff), which was
causing some related trouble at others' browsers, if I understand the
whole correctly. (You might have a look at
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/firefox-crashing-on-youtube-623118/.)

A $ apt-cache search mplayer

gives me unuseful stuff, except

==
mplayer-skin-blue - blue skin for mplayer
mplayer-dbg - debugging symbols for MPlayer
mplayer-doc - documentation for MPlayer
mplayer - movie player for Unix-like systems
mozilla-mplayer - MPlayer-Plugin for Mozilla
==

Note however, that


==
# apt-get -s remove mozilla-mplayer
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package mozilla-mplayer is not installed, so not removed
==

It may not be the cause of the problem, somehow. I just wanted to
exclude any possibility...

Using the built-in Epiphany results in the same crashes (just with
Youtube). That looks normal as Epiphany is Gecko-based.

For IE, it evidently works pretty well under Microsoft Windows XP, but
this is not the subject, isn't it?

> Run firefox from a terminal, that way you'll see the errors when it
> crashes.
That was the first thing I tried:

==
$ firefox http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cY_KrB8Mepg
Unsupported movie property style with value ""
Unsupported movie property id with value "movie_player"
Unsupported movie property name with value "movie_player"
Unsupported movie property quality with value "high"
Unsupported movie property allowfullscreen with value "true"
Unsupported movie property allowscriptaccess with value "always"
Loading stream: http://s.ytimg.com/yt/swf/watch-vfl143348.swf
unhandled event 19
==

until there, NO crash at all (it is always so), as I have a really big
`Play' icon _in_ the flash plug-in: the Flash has not been played.

Then, some unuseful stuff:

==

==

Once I have clicked, I can hear sound, and sometimes see an image from
the flash being played, but nothing more. The whole Iceweasel becomes
unresponsive, and I am obliged to kill the process. If I do not kill
it, it begins to stall completely, and freezes.

Any idea?


Thanks for your help.

Is that possibly gnash? Gnash IIRC still doesn't fully support the
features utilised by youtube.


Have you installed the flash plugin from aptitude/synaptic/apt? If so,
what do you receive from


dpkg -l '*flash*' '*gnash*'

Actually, I think this is quite useful in this case; the standard
non-free plugin from Adobe doesn't return any output for me.



Once I have clicked, I can hear sound, and sometimes see an image from
the flash being played, but nothing more. The whole Iceweasel becomes
unresponsive, and I am obliged to kill the process. If I do not kill
it, it begins to stall completely, and freezes.

Any idea?



Check both PCs (aboutlugins) and see if the flash plugins differ as I
suspect they do. On youtube you'll get the best support from the
'official' flash plugin.


OR if you have greasemonkey installed, you can use
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/63509 and view the videos using
mplayer or VLC. I've had the best luck with the greasemonkey script and
the following settings


# ~/.mplayer/mplayerplug-in.conf
vo=gl
cachesize=512
cache-percent=5
profile=plugin


# ~/.mplayer/config
[plugin]
autosync=0
mc=0
correct-pts=yes


Hope this helps,

Edward J. Shornock

The plugins are exactly the same, except that the computer where it
works has also `Shockwave Flash 10.0 r22' together with `Shockwave
Flash 9.0 r100,' where the computer which Youtube does not work on has
only `Shockwave Flash 9.0 r100.'

Hello,
I think that is your problem,*you-tube*only really works well under flash v10*
Instructions here will get you up and running with v10 and that *should* fix your problems

Okay, I have solved the problem.

Angus Hedger sent me an e-mail with a pointer to
http://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer#Debian5.0.27Lenny.27.3AFlashPlayer10
but I did not see his e-mail directly. I tried something by myself
which was actually the same as what he proposed me to do. Funny. Here
is the story:

1. Installing the last Flash Player from the `genuine' website,
i.e. either from a .tar.gz (which only contains a .so file: strange,
isn't it? Last versions were not containing only such a file, I think)
or from a .rpm is not a good idea.

I installed the rpm, but the add-on was actually not
recognized at all by FF (and thus Iceweasel). There is a difference
between flashplugin-nonfree (which is in the backports) and the flash
which is installed with Adobe's website! The Flash which is installed
thanks to the file which you download on Adobe's website is _not_
contained in a package such as `flashplugin-nonfree.' FF and Iceweasel
seem to look for nothing but flashplugin-nonfree. Consequently, FF and
Iceweasel never find the Flash you install, once it has been
downloaded and installed thanks to Adobe's website. However, this
solution worked on the computer where Flash was already working at the
beginning...

2. I firstly looked thoroughly in packages.debian.org, where the
backports give flashplugin-nonfree. I gave a try, and installing it
worked perfectly. Okay, it is listed as only `Shockwave Flash
10.0 r42' in the add-ons of Iceweasel (and consequently FF). This is
nice, and, on Youtube, and now works perfectly!

3. Youtube apparently uses the functionalities of the most recent
versions of Flash. Consequently, every Flash was working on every
website, except on Youtube, where videos where hanging the whole
browser, because the installed version (9.0) was not supporting some stuff
which was actually asked by Youtube: it was too old.

4. I was happy to see that it worked, and Angus' e-mail confirmed my
thoughts, even if I read it just after having solved the problem:

==
I think that is your problem, you-tube only really works well under flash v10

Instructions here will get you up and running with v10 and that *should* fix your problems

http://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer#Debian5.0.27Lenny.27.3AFlashPlayer10
==

5. Debian's politic sometimes creates problems which could be solved
in a really more straightforward way: if it had been in the deps from
the beginning, I would not have had to do all of this. Okay, this is
`too recent' stuff, but sticking with main packages should not prevent
you from viewing a video on Youtube! (I actually quite never use
Youtube, but I prefer things working everywhere.)

Thanks all.

Default Firefox (and Iceweasel) are unable to play Youtube videos

It's "vox populi" that Flash Player is closed source and so cannot/
shouldn't be included by default in Debian. You can get it from other
sources.
