The script works fine and does exactly what it's supposed to do.
foxmajik, Firefox wanted you to download Quicktime because it needed a player to play mp4 files in the browser. Don't give this script a bad review because you were too ignorant to know that.
I appreciate that while other YouTube-related UserScripts don't work anymore, this one has been consistently updated to continue working with YouTube even through YouTube's periodic changes.
Very nice. Just don't use Quicktime for your MP4 player ;)
Works very well on Ubuntu Oneiric. My main reason for using it is the inefficiency of flash player processing-wise: it maxes out my (oldish) CPU and for some quality settings in fact doesn't have enough to get me even close to the necessary 25 fps. This is ridiculously wasteful and the implementation of flash deserves the blame, because VLC (through this script) consumes half as much CPU and thus has no issues whatsoever.
My biggest gripe with Youtube is videos automatically starting when I click on one. This script fixes that problem and I love it.
All I ever wanted was for YouTube to use an actual video player plugin and not the closed-source behemoth that is the Adobe Flash player.
This user script makes it possible not only on YouTube, but on other sites as well.
Even if you don't have a player available, it still has a download link. Bravo.
Finally i don't have to put up with Adobe's slow / "if you play me in fullscreen i'll play at less than 1 frame per second" / "you need latest version - but we don't have it for your platform" aka Flash player!
Thanks for making youtube as easy to watch with a native player as it is with Adobe Flash.
Simple and brilliant! Thank you!
It works great on Ubuntu Linux PowerPC (this plattform is unsupported by adobe).
Awesome script works amazing on my mac
with just quicktime!
When I browse to a video I get the "additional plugins are required" bar at the top of Firefox, then it prompts me to install "apple quicktime." Um. No.
Also, why did you add globs for youtube sites when you also added http://* ? It's redundant.
