SmartVideo vs. Google maps Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Since Google Maps changed its interface, SmartVideo for Youtube is preventing any chance of moving through maps. The map page loads but no dragging or any other action works in it.

Incompatibility Issues Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

I have been frustrated lately by Google Maps not working on Firefox so, on the advice of a Mozilla support discussion, I went through the process of disabling my add-ons individually until I found the problematic extension. SmartVideo for YouTube was the problematic extension. Now that it's disabled, Google Maps works perfectly.

Great plug-in with a few quirks Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

The plug-in works really well, allowing youtube videos to be properly buffered on slow connections before you start playing. It seams to interfere with posting comments but its easily switched off and on if you want to do that.
Its very annoying when your youtube video stops 1/2 way through because the player didn't buffer enough data no more of that with this plug-in

not working Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

the addon is not working with the mozilla firfox 27. Can u pls help?

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

The plugin works for the most part but I think there are some problems with new firefox and chrome versions:

1. It blocks the hangout chat in firefox if you want to control embedded videos, in chrome it works.
2. It makes some sites (the course registration site for my university) unusable in both chrome and firefox.
3. When watching videos in youtube, if you click on a new video the previous one keeps playing. You have to reload the page to watch the new video. This happens in mostly in chrome.
4. In chrome the general settings for video quality does not seem to work. you have to set the resolution in almost every video.

On websites which don't have embedded youtube videos. Besides you do that twice for every CSS style.

Breaks new Google Maps when "Control embedded videos" is checked, and I wish it worked with HTML5

Largly broken Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Was a great addon for a while. Now it breaks google maps. It causes videos to fail to load half the time. It also randomly starts autoplaying embedded videos.

There is hope. Grab greasemonkey and download "YouTube Center" from userscripts dot org.

Compatibility problems ??? Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

The actual version doesn't work with the new google maps and also prevents me from replying to comments on youtube, I hope someone is still working on this awesome addon... Using version 0.979...

Can't reply to YouTube commentes Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

This could be a useful add-on, but it screws the YT comment system. I can start a new comment thread, but I cannot reply to existing comments. Unfortunately it's a deal breaker. I'll check for updates periodically and probably write another review when that's fixed.

Incompatiblity update Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

After seeing FLskydiver's review I also noticed that it was actually keeping the control embedded videos option that was the cause. Google maps loads fine when only control youtube videos option is on.

"Control Embedded Videos" Option Breaks Google Maps Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Just figured this out on my own, independently of previous reviewer, and came here to comment. "Control Videos on YouTube" option does NOT break Google Maps.

Looking forward to an update...

Firefox 37.0.2, Windows 8.1 x64 Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

Not worked.

Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

Hmm, takes long time to update this addon for Firefox users here unlike Chrome.
It works flawlessly expect for one big thing:
After disabling it, my Firefox browser became faster!
So? Need to solve this performance issue, please!

Seems to work again... so far. Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Mmh, it would seem that this last 'bug fix' (0.979) has solved most of the ''new'' problems that had appeared recently (because of Google).
And, like for 0.977 (unlike 0.978), it once again appear to properly buffer videos on Youtube.

EDIT : Seems like it's impossible to *reply* to a comment in a page anymore... the 'box' remain like an almost-flat line, and we can't click on/in it.

But, I have one question that I'm asking myself since a long time now, about something that's irritating me moderately, but never found an answer for :
Why does it seems there's no 480p option, when viewing Youtube videos ?
I see 720p and 360p, but not the 480p I have normally access to WITHOUT this addon... also, in the addon's option page, the 'Video Quality' offers 'Medium:360px - Large:576px - HD720:720px', but no 'Large:480px' ?
If I select 'Large:576px', it still gives me the lower quality of '360p' on the videos.

I want GOOD quality... not insane+++ HD-pro or low 360p quality. Something that should be simple, no ?

Somewhat helpful, though it has some annoying flaws and design choices. Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

From my experience with SmartVideo, I've noticed that although the videos I watch are moving along a little better I still felt a bit annoyed with a design choice in particular that I'll address further on in this review. As for a major flaw however, I noticed that while SmartVideo was installed, I wasn't able to reply to anyone's comments or edit/delete my own comments.

As for the aforementioned design choice, I felt as if the layout of options were obscuring my normal YouTube experience a little too much.

I will consider trying SmartVideo again if the comment system issues let up at some point but for now I think it's best that uninstall this add-on.
