- by Braden's PC's, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5It is now IMPOSSIBLE for this add-on to work. YouTube/Google has completely removed the flash video feature from YouTube, there is no possible way this addon is doing anything, it's not like it could auto-convert the stream to flash video on the fly.....so why the heck are there still people giving this thing 5 star "good" and "ok" reviews? I think the fact that most of them are "anonymous users" may be a clue....
- by BlohoJo, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5This add-on appears to work by telling YouTube that none of its video formats / file types will play back in its HTML5 player. That **used** to trigger YouTube's Flash player to load. But, YouTube has **completely removed** its Flash player code from its site, so now, all this add-on will do is cause YouTube's HTML5 player to display a message that the browser doesn't recognize any of the video formats available.
So I'm unclear as to why this add-on is still getting updates... since there doesn't appear to be any way it can work?
Unless there is some user agent trick or some other trick I don't know about... but then, if there is, that should be built into the plugin, shouldn't it?
