Youtube HTML5 Remover (1.0) for firefox engine-[05/05/2012]

Youtube HTML5 Remover V1.0

This plugin checks to see if you are opted in to Youtube's html5 trial or not.
I find the HTML5 video player is laggy and bad for various reasons, when I opt out of the trial and clear my cookies, it opts me back in!
This plugin will run once everytime Youtube decides to opt you back in. You may need to be logged into your account for this to work.

Thanks for the plugin.

With firefox rendering is possible disable the webm ... html5 in the page :
about:config
search for :
media.webm.enabled
change it to:
false


About the plugin.
I have a problem with chrome rendering , i get a error 2 or 3 sec's after the page is loading.
I changed the numbers to 2000 6000 but still have that error page.
I also tried logged into youtube but dont work.
And i tested with all the chrome plugins off too but still dont work.
After have this error , all the other pages have the violet crash page , that sometimes happens in avant (need use shift+f5).

Did the same test with firefox rendering and it works fine.
Not logged into youtube.
The numbers i use:
800 1000
Less than this dont work well.


sulpherdragon , you tested the plugin with chrome rendering ?
It works for anyone with chrome rendering ?

Hi CrazyJohn,

This plugin wasn't intended for any renderer other than firefox. Personally I only use firefox and I only get lag with HTML5 in the firefox renderer. If you like, I can investigate into a chrome version of the plugin.
Thanks for the info on the about:config settings, I dont want to disable HTML5 altogether, just for the youtube player.

So I modified the subject.

Ok , i have the avant settings to use chrome rendering in youtube , because of some video enlarger plugins and other settings.
If its not alot of work for you , i would like of have a plugin like this but for chrome , would be very useful :D

Thanks.

AbelAbel , thanks for your post .

But first you need put the html5 ON in this site
http://www.youtube.com/html5
then go for example to this video and see if it disable the html5 and play with flash.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5N7R9Wbe_E

To test again you need to enable again the html5.
Just for more info , You did that ?

You are with W7 , im with Xp sp3 , more info for sulpherdragon .

Thanks Jasmine for fixing the title.
Thanks Crazy_John for explaining the concept, in fact, the plugin opens the /html5 page in a hidden window and clicks the "Leave the HTML5 Trial" button, then refreshes the page.
The interactions between the pages/windows are almost certainly going to be different in each browser and that is why we see the plugin only working in FF.
