FlowTube is a plugin that embeds Flowplayer into YouTube.
It’s now your choice if a video plays when the page loads or not. Toggle Buffering:
If you choose not to Autoplay videos, you can have them buffer in the background.Better Buffering Prediction:
Flowplayer buffers your video and plays it when it thinks you will be able to play the video without stuttering caused by bad internet connections.HQ/HD:
Updated- Not only can FlowTube play HD and HQ videos, it will force a low quality video to play as a HQ video. You may not get an improvement, it all depends on googles sampling methods, However you may notice the video takes longer to load, as with a HQ video. I hope the previous HD problem is fixed now, but if there are any bugs let me know.No Adverts:
Yay, you can watch in peace without those annoying adverts that pop up in the middle of your videos. Only a small Flowplayer watermark appears in the top right of Fullscreen mode.No Annotations:
Yay again, you don’t have get sick at the ugly annotations put up by some ignorant YouTube uploaders.Looping:
You can choose to loop the video, can always be used if you want to loop music videos.Cookies:
Settings are saved in a cookie, so it remembers your preferences.On/Off Toggle:
If for any reason, you can revert to the original YouTube player by simply toggling the Flowplayer button on the YouTube sidebar, Then hitting refresh. All this is done without turning off the plugin.Compatability:
Should work with all other YouTube scripts. Edit: there is a small problem with my YouTubeAutoResize script and this. Will fix ASAP.Aesthetics:
Not only is Flowplayer a nice looking player, the FlowTube control panel fits with the YouTube theme. Buttons that are activated are intuitively highlighted yellow.Notes:
There are few tiny problems here and there, but they are mostly rare. For example, time markers in the comments (With formats such as 2:32 and 0:28, you know the ones) don’t work. If there are any problems let me know. In the future versions I plan to make the interface more intuitive. Some Actions do not take effect until the page is refreshed; these include embedding Flowplayer and changing to or from HD. You can use the handy Refresh Page button.
Some sections of the code are borrowed from other websites and converted for use in IE, such as YouTube Alternative Player, all respect goes to those dev's without whom, this may be difficult to impossible to implement.
I don’t know why anyone would want a button version of this plugin, but I’m supplying one anyway.
I've grown fond of the black edges on Flowplayer, I might release a CSS theme to modify all of YouTube to fit the Flowplayer theme.
