There is no quality settings to start a video in the highest available quality.
If the video quality is set to 1080p, it only works when the available quality is 1080p. This plugin won't set the actual quality to 720p if only that's available, instead the YouTube default loads (360p or 480p). Also in this case the video starts to play automatically even if it's not set.
this is the best addon for slow connections, selecting 240p videos is a bandwith saver, thanks so much!
You sir, are a lifesaver. I have been plagued by this YouTube issue for months now, and the random changing of player sizes and playback qualities really drove me crazy. Today I was actually considering switching to Chrome just because of this problem, until I found your addon!
It's a big goddamn success! Videos are now buffering properly to the end, the player doesn't change quality at mid-playback anymore, and I can finally watch my playlists in comfort. I owe you a big one. Thumbs up to you!
P.S. The only thing that bugs me is the thing about it not activating when the video is played in a new tab. If there's any way of fixing it, that'd be terrific.
The developer of this addon deserves a medal, it is that good simply by the fact that it has made youtube usable once again. Two settings have saved the day for now: small video quality and ensure that videos are buffered even if they are paused. If I want higher resolution they can be downloaded otherwise there's no need for them. That default setting and the new buffering is making it impossible to enjoy the videos despite having high speed internet.
FFS I can watch YouTube videos again, they buffer from the start to the end and they do it fast. I can't believe it.
Thanks a lot!
Hi.I just found your addon and god i love it.I was going crazy with the buffering not continuing while paused thing that was going on with youtube.Because of it i had other major problem with youtube videos.When i was skipping forward or backwards in the already buffered part it would start rebuffering from the time i skipped to which leads to stuttering for 1-2 sec while it buffers again.With the continuous buffering option in your addon those 2 problems are fixed.
The only thing that is preventing me from rating this addon as perfect is the bug that when you open a youtube video with Ctrl+click or with middle mouse button or the "open in new tab" option from the right-click context menu it doesn't apply any of the addon settings at all.It is like the addon is not enabled.You need to reload the page with the video again to make the settings apply.Also as some ppl said before restoring a session with several tabs of youtube vidoes has the same bug.only the first or active tab gets the settings applied.The other tabs behave like no add on at all again.If you fix that bug,it will be the perfect youtube addon for me.
I am using FF.
I have found a problem.When you open a youtube link with the MMB so it's open in a new tab, it starts playing straight away, and ignores all the smart videos settings (no HD, no buffer and so on) Please can this be fixed as this is a good FF addon
DUDE YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!!
I CAN WATCH YOUTUBE AGAIN.
My internet like has been screwed for a year (south african telephone monopoly from hell)
Please add a feature to save the video to hard drive once it's buffered!!!
When I make some money I'm definitely donating! :)
Doesn't work if the window is out of focus. Ex: If you open a youtube video in a new minimized tab.
Replying to youtube comments broken. Everytime this add on is selected and being used for videos, when you hit reply on someones comment and then hit enter the comment will disappear and a huge gap will appear on screen between comments. Figures i downloaded this to fix one problem and then after a while this has problems.
Doesn't buffer before or during the time I play a video. The only way it allows me to watch is by restricting the video to 3 seconds which is bullshit. I don't want to buffer 3 fucking seconds of a video for "Estimated Time: Calculating..."
I do not recommend this.
Current 0.977 version has some bugs (which I will report on support page) so can only give this version 2 stars. If it worked as it once did then likely 4 starts. Otherwise a nice addon.
For people who doesn't work properly, Check that the option "Save Bandwidth; Do not initialize video until I click" is unmarked, otherwise it won't load automatically.
this shit does't buffer anything anly can replay the video doesn't buffer anithing this is aweful
I've got it set to buffer videos to 43% before playing. But they start straightaway and so are still a jerky mess.
it hardly works
Getting more control over youtube is awesome but sadly this addons kills the loading speed of youtube videos for me (as i got 100mbit/s cable)
While using this addon i get around 2mbit/s per video, without addons its around 60mbit/s! :(
Hope you get this fixed and also get the ability to select the quality with html5! :)
I confirm the previous reviews. Since a few versions, SmartVideo doesn't enforce its settings with embedded videos and playlists (the videos automatically play, no matter what). Same thing if you open a video link in a new tab, the video will automatically play in the background. Quite annoying. Hopefully you can fix this!
v0.977 not working for embedded videos.
As i mentioned in my previous review Superb addon features of which should be default for Youtube, but GOD knows y these big names have a tendency of not providing the most general features a user need.
But there is one bug , when i open a youtube video in a new tab "smart video" doesnt apply its settings. Plz fix it if possible rest all is gr8, keep it up.
Not working all the time with fews opened ytb tabs:
- Not keep buffering to 100%.
- Still auto play even checked "Don't play, only notify..."
I don;t know about other people but this add-on is fully functional with you tube and latest version of firefox..I have tried many similar add-ons including greasemonkey scripts but this is more to my liking and i am sticking with it..Also thanks for fixing the problem with imdb..If,as the title suggest,you could implement volume control,my ears would be grateful!!..Thanks again and keep up the good work...
I give this addon 5 stars because it's been awesome for a long time, but this month (May 2013) it hasn't worked at all. This is probably due to some changes in YouTube itself, so I'm patiently waiting for an update from the developer.
it worked fine before but now on FF 20.0.1 and 21.0 it doesnt buffer videos anymore, i tried the advice below to do the FF 17.0 esr vertion but it didnt work, i need to be able to buffer the videos t.t
