Default firefox, linux-flash, nspluginwrapper, and youtube?

When I play videos in youtube the audio slowly becomes out of sync with the video. Im using

firefox-2.0.0.16,1
linux-flashplugin-7.0r73_1
nspluginwrapper-1.0.0


Is this common with this combination?

I believe this is a common problem.

IMO the best solution to watch Youtube videos on FreeBSD is using clive (multimedia/clive)

Default Re: Clive

Can Clive get videos from urls like: 'mms://wm.nasa-global.speedera.net/wm.nasa-global/ccvideos/GSFC_20080715_COSvideo.wmv?SAMI=http://anon.nasa-global.edgesuite.net/anon.nasa-global/ccvideos/GSFC_20080715_COSvideo.smi'

That url originates from http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/videogallery/index.html

No, from the pkg-descr:

clive is a command line tool for extracting videos from Youtube,
Google Video, Dailymotion, Guba (free), Stage6, Metacafe, LastFm,
Sevenload, and MyVideo.(de|ch|at|nl|be) websites.

I don't believe it'll help you with MMS links, http://www.geocities.com/majormms/ has a "mms_client" package which may work.. you'll need to compile it, plus there is gmms @ sourceforge.

Other media players might be able to handle the links directly, it's quite appalling how NASA didn't make their new site vendor-neutral.

You could always write a quick shell script combined from tcpdump, fetch, curl...to download direct multimedia files. tcpdump can see them all, nevertheless in some situations you do need some tricks (mostly http request headers) to successfully retrieve the file. If you wanna do smt further, write it as cgi script and let apache hosts it. You and your mate now can download multimedia stuff anytime, anywhere

It was a project that I thought I could do it but Im too busy and actually never had enough time to finish

youtube-dl Haven't used it for a while but always worked good. Played them using mplayer.

EDIT: Hmm. Didn't know clive did all that. youtube-dl just does youtube, unless something has changed.

I've come to the decision that the best flash option is swf-dec. That said, I have only tried it on ubuntu amd-64, and it is far from perfect; but adobe's flash player was unusable, as it regularly hung firefox, or just died, leaving me without flash until I restarted firefox (which I do approximately weekly).

If you just want to use Flash for watching videos on Google and Youtube, then you should use Swfdec or Gnash, which are free alternatives to the Flash plugin. Each support Flash 7 and certain features from 8 and 9. Google and Youtube compatibility is maintained from release to release. Swfdec works great for me.

I must have done something wrong. I installed
swfdec-0.6.8 Flash Rendering Library
swfdec-plugin-0.6.0_1 Flash rendering plugin

and when I go to youtube all I see is a black screen where the video should be playing. Is there a secret to get it working properly?

Interesting, that's all I have installed too. It may not have been properly installed as a plugin for Firefox. You may want to look into that.

I think the native BSD browsers cant play Flash, and they must be linux-*?

No, you can play Flash in native browsers by using nspluginwrapper and the Linux plugins. You can also use swfdec and gnash to get at least Flash 7 compatibility natively with certain features of 8 and 9.

I found this on a the redhat bugzilla
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, it all works for me now--video and audio--with the -ugly plugins and the
gstreamer-ffmpeg package. Intel GM965 video card, no special settings in Xorg.
(Why isn't gstreamer-ffmpeg called gstreamer-plugins-ffmpeg? I would have
found it sooner then.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Im going to install the gstreamer-ffmpeg and the gstreamer-ulgy pkgs and see if it fixes the problem. I'll report later.

ninjatux , One question. When you installed swfdec did you add the option "Support for decoding some codecs with GStreamer"? and if so, which gstreamer-plugins do you have installed?

I didn't select that item, but I do have the following installed.

Code:
===>>> gstreamer-0.10.20
===>>> gstreamer-plugins-0.10.20_2,3
I've explicitly disabled gstreamer support, but I imagine that swfdec needs them.

This is a bit OT, but is it just me or it is Flash 7 with native Opera 9.51 and nspluginwrapper's problem? I just tried installing them and it was very slow and laggy. It was unusable overall.

Its totally fine with native Firefox 3.0, btw
