It's a really great add-on for Firefox Android. But since some Firefox updates it doesn't work anymore. In place of the play button, the embedded YouTube player is blank, white, nothing.
Hope you will find some time fixing this.
This add-on is great and is exactly what I needed. Especially it's helpful on pages with a lot of embed players, cuz my browser lagged a lot there.
But there are two problems. In first could you make that clicking on thumbnails would open videos in new tab, not current one? In second could you replace that play image with smaller one and without that circle or something? It doesn't look very nice.
Edit: Two more problems. Font could be smaller, cuz it doesn't fit to thumbnails and titles are cut. And it seems to not work on YouTube site where on channel pages are embedded videos.
Firefox constantly crashes when I access the Guardian website (http://www.theguardian.com) with this addon enabled. Please fix it ASAP! Thank you.
Combine this with the addon
YouTube Anywhere Player
and enjoy nirvana like goodness, its like bein on mobile and instead of opening the youtube app it opens a full window video or small-pop up notification-like everything without leaving the current page
Just what I wanted. Works well.
Exactly what I was looking for. Makes embedded videos appear as a preview image that opens in YouTube, the same way they do in Chrome.
There's no way it could be improved - thanks very much
Hasn't worked for a few weeks now, supposedly since a Firefox update. Please fix it, because this is one of the best add-ons ever, when it's working!
Sorry, dave. Are you using it of firefox mobile? If so you are probably being affected by this issue https://github.com/kevincox/youtube-e2l/issues/10 which is due to a firefox bug. The bug is linked in the issue and the best I can do is wait for a firefox patch.
If it isn't that issue feel free to open an issue on my issue tracker so that I can look into it.
I love the app but it does not work since the YouTube app was updated and changed its theme.
Thanks for the report, if you open an issue in our tracker we can work together to hunt it down.
Works great except when video is no longer available or passworded or Vevo type (have to go to Youtube to see the video). You just get big black image and you have to guess if this some leftover from adblockers or something else. Please fix it.
It does well what promised.All my stars :-)
As title, it's perfect, works like a charm, but, a little issue with the last 1.9.1 version.. i'm using firefox BETA (23.x) and it's impossible to install that mod.. the 1.9.0 is installable without any problem.
I'm on note2 with jb 4.1.2
That's strange as Mozilla is packaging the addon and I got an email from Mozilla saying that the version was bumped. Try again and if it is not working open a ticket at https://github.com/kevincox/youtube-e2l/issues.
Please don't reply here as I won't be notified.
i use it to watch those little embedded videos in full screen TV mode with help of the userscript and also in VLC player with the help of "Open With" addon
Good addon. Exactly what I was looking for. Is it possible to convert the embed video into just a simple URL instead of a thumbnail? If you can add this feature it'll be great.
It is definitely possible but there a a few things to figure out. If you could open a bug report on out github page (see the support link) then we can get it implemented.
Allows you to have YouTube videos embedded on sites as HTML 5 videos. Awesome for redditors!
