Finally stable and neat way to save CPU time and to some other stuff without getting blown away by your cpu fan, because Adobe Flash sucks.
Please keep up the good work. It migth be a lot of work but it definitly is worth the effort.
This userscript is excellent. It plays videos flawlessly in VLC where others like Youtube Without Flash Auto do not.
The only complaints are that it does not have a buffer indicator (showing you how much of the video is playable) and it does not let you seek to a specific part of the video.
Works like stated. One of the best available plugins at userscripts.org!
This script is really helpful for all flash haters, it simply works!
Allowed me to drop flash, and works flawlessly on GNU/Linux(Fedora 19).
Author went above and beyond in helping me fix an issue.
Buffers *much* faster than the flash counterpart.
very good script work like a charm.
I like really the speed playback feature.
I've been looking for something like this for ages, does exactly what i want. Thanks, great work.
But you must remember to put the %PATH string in correctly as it's an x86 install with the official VLC, and not an true 64 bit application.
Works just as promised.Good work.
This script is the ONLY script/addon I found which really solves the next problem:
Before I found this script, when I watched a problematic low-volume video in YT I had to increase my PC's volume (the "System's volume") during the watching of the video and when the video finishes remember to decrease it otherwise the next NOT-Problematic audio/video I listen/watch might "blow up" my ears (especially if I'm with headphones or strong loudspeakers are connected).
Now with VLCtube there's no danger of that "ears-blow-up". Whenever I stumble a problematic/low-volume video I use VLCtube to boost the volume over 100% (lets say to about 200%) and when I start to watch the next video the volume returns automatically to the normal 100% start volume level (without me having to remember to do it manually).
So with VLCtube there's no need to boost the PC's volume during watching the video and no need to remember to bring it back down afterwards.
There are many videos in YT which have low-volume. Here's an example:
Boost the volume over 100% ONLY ON LOW-VOLUME VIDEOS (If you try to boost regular-volume videos you might get a distorted effect).
Many audio cards have “loudness equalization” feature which can boost the volume of low-volume sources but I recommend you to NOT use it. This feature "normalizes" the volume on your system - it boosts low-volume sources and reduces high-volume sources.
The problem is that this “loudness equalization” reduces the quality of the audio.
I recommend you to read also the comment at the bottom of this page:
Especially when it comes to music. If you want music be played as it was intended to be played without “signal processing” don't use “loudness equalization”. Instead use VLCtube and just boost the volume of low-volume videos.
Here's a agreat complementary tool to control the volume of the PC. It is a freeware called Volumouse (by Nir Sofer). It provides numerous options to control the volume (and even the left-right volume balance) . I'm now controlling my PC's volume by hovering the taskbar or any window title, holding down the right-click and scrolling the mouse wheel down or up.
