I installed this add-on over the past couple of hours, let Windows Update perform 12 updates, did a few other things before closing Firefox, restarted Windows, ..., and now I'm back to Firefox. That being done I then wanted to see how playing a YouTube video would be, but first looked over the settings for this SmartVideo For YouTube (SVFY). The settings seem okay, based on what their names are, but the add-on has a problem.

I get a normal YouTube page, except the video player area is completely black and I don't see any control thing, tool or whatever you call it, for this add-on. So I figured it may be necessary to disable the add-on but first went back to the settings and wanted to test only one change at a time. I began by disabling or unselecting the very first option, "Control Videos on YouTube". Then I went back to the YouTube page and reloaded it.

The video automatically begins to play, but I can at least stop it and the video, which is 5:12 for duration, stopped buffering at 0:47. This is something I can put up with, but I'll leave the add-on installed and enabled, simply keeping the "Control Videos on YouTube" option unselected.

That will permit being notified when a corrected version of the add-on is made available and when that notice arrives, then I'll do the update and will test the add-on again with "Control Videos on YouTube" re-enabled.

Given the very nice interface for the settings and the fact that this video has received an average of 4/5 ratings, so far, I'll also give 4.

Lastly, Bang Nguyen, posted a review comment on February 7, 2013, saying that he or she also got only a black area where the YouTube video is supposed to appear. And Bang said that this was with Firefox 18. I have 18.0.2 presently installed.
