I listen to Radio 1 using Windows Media Player with the active content disabled. The URL I use is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r1.asx If you want to listen to other BBC radio stations then change the number at the end of the URL e.g r2.asx. r3.asx etc Much better than the web player on the BBC site. I found that if I listened for a couple of ...

Four points that make HTML5 not so hot for YouTube: Cannot point to a particular point in a video with the #t=21m0s portions Cannot watch content protected videos Full Screen Support (currently does full browser screen) Recording directly to YouTube with a webcam On Firefox and Opera, only videos with WebM transcodes will play in HTML5 (found this one on ...

Under OS X (and probably on Linux too) the HTML5 video playback uses far less CPU than the Flash video player. This might change when hardware acceleration is released in the OS X Flash Player (currently available as a beta http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/gala/)

Guru Lib seems to have a barcode scanner, I've never tried it though (home page). There is an instruction in their blog.

Some videos on YouTube are uploaded in a high resolution, for example 720p (720 pixels vertical resolution). However, the player window itself is just around 380 pixels high. When you watch the video in the small player, it doesn't make sense to buffer the high-quality version. You wouldn't see all the pixels anyway. When you switch to full-screen, notice ...

The issue with the first example is that you are not going straight to the video. Instead of watching as part of a playlist, view the video only: http://youtu.be/KqnB2Ew0SFM This is the full URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqnB2Ew0SFM Now you'll get all the features supported by HTML5.

The page below is the answer... It contains links to Flash (spit) and non flash media sources for all(?) their radion stations. :-) How can I listen to BBC Radio stations and programmes online? http://faq.external.bbc.co.uk/questions/radio/online_radiohowto/?src=interstitial

There doesn't seem to be an option on the site to allow the listening to radio programmes with out a video component. The "in page" version is an animated speaker the "pop out" version has more animations. On Windows if you right click over the Flash player you can get to an options dialog that has an "Enable hardware acceleration" option on the Display ...

Given the same caveat as Frank there are (apparently) several 3rd party tools that can do this. SWF Glanda Squidoo Aunsoft SWF Converter Media Convert Source - word of warning though. That's an old (2008) thread so the products mentioned might not be available any more. However, it might give you a starting point for further searches.

The default resolution for small player mode is 360p, while switching to fullscreen will switch to 480p. In order to counter this, click on the resolution symbol and choose a resolution of your desire: The lower the resolution, the faster it loads. Also once you modify the resolution, this video will stay in that resolution (and keep/continue preloading) ...

You can do this by changing the url with ANY video. Simply take the video id (like the KqnB2Ew0SFM above in the 1st answer and add it after this: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v= (getting http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=KqnB2Ew0SFM if using that video) This way, the video takes up your whole screen and is forced to play in HTML5 (well, just ...

There are a few similar applications, like Amazon Test Drive, and I think all use the same technique. As Amazon announced, Test Drive run your Android application in an EC2 virtual machines. So as Pieceable Viewer: they may, in the easiest way, create multiple VMs each run an iOS simulator. Output is forward to your browser, using VNC or any similar ...

If you're willing to switch to Chrome, you can use this extension, which offers the option to force a certain player type. YouTube Options used to be able to do this but it no longer does so.

I'm not sure about Flash, but I recognize the problem you're having. Firefox's <video> support hasn't yet been done properly, so it's much slower than any other method. If nobody else suggests something you like better, FlashVideoReplacer would let you swap out the YouTube-provided player for either the Quicktime or VLC plugin and both should run ...

The iOS (iPhone, iPad, etc) does not support flash and will not do so in the near future and there is no real good way to make it run flash that would be easy for your customers to use. I would suggest to bite the bullet and host an h.264 version of your videos on your site.

It is accused of being a bug (of certain versions of Flash Player) and an out of memory notification. Adobe Forums: Gray circle with white exclamation mark on white background

Short answer: Yes, it does. If you open Google Chrome background pages view, you can see that whenever you load the Gmail page, the Shockwave Flash plugin starts to run. Also if you kill the Shockwave Flash plugin there, it will notify on the Gmail tab that the process has problems. Here is the background process listing:

I know you asked for Firefox explicitly, but if you were to move to Chrome you could use the Stop Autoplay for YouTube extension (which stops playback yet allows buffering) combined with the Auto HD for YouTube to automagically select your preferred quality levels. Both plugins can be found on Google's Chrome Extensions. EDIT: For FireFox, you could ...

There are a few JavaScript solutions for that, like sIRF and cufón that you can try for that purpose. Else you could use an email obfuscator. For more info, see here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/748780/best-way-to-obfuscate-an-e-mail-address-on-a-website

The best advantage of HTML5 of YouTube player is compatibility with Android devices. When the user click the player to watch a video, no need to skip to YouTube App. Just embed and watch the video within the page, no Flash problems. At PresentationTube, we use HTML5 to allow mobile users watch the video within the page the same as the desktop.

Youtube does not offer brightness/speed controls. It might be possible for a website programmer to implement such controls with HTML5, but youtube has not done so. I would recommend adjusting brightness on your monitor, or downloading the video and playing it back with a local media player program with such controls.
