Script doesn't work on links like http://www.youtube.com/youtube. As i tested changing:

	// USER profile page
	case new RegExp('^/user/.+').test(path):

to:
	// USER profile page
	case new RegExp('^/.+').test(path):

works fine.
And need add additional include:
http://*.youtube.*/*

Sometimes the 'MEDIUM' setting does not work. In videos like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_35lNmxDYI the video loads in 720p High Definition mode instead of the expected 480p mode.

EDIT: Google also made a sucky, new and incompatible version of the viewing page. You can get a preview in the link below.

Mike, I wait for the final release, before updating the code for this new environment. I'm afraid it won't be easy, because of the ajax-based paging. :(

Your bugreport and banditsan's suggestion will be fixed soon.

Thanks for both of you.

Thanks for writing this! Very simple and elegant. Would it be possible to turn off autobuffering (either by default or adding an option?)

@dactylo: I'm afraid I cant implement that. When I tried, it worked fine in Firefox only if Adblock Plus is activated. So the problem is caused by the inline advertisements. They load independently, and when they finished loading, the video starts, even if the video have stopped earlier.
Nevertheless, I hope you still take benefits of using the script.

@eugenox- interesting. Thanks for the reply! I ended up modifying the flashblock extension to replace the whitelist with a blacklist (and added YT to the blacklist).

I'm currently using this as a substitute to Yousabletubefix. I like how well you've integrated the script features into Youtube's own redesign however, I would like it if the quality button could include a "Very High" option to toggle between 720p and 1080p. As ask for this because my computer can run 720p videos on Youtube just fine but struggles a lot on 1080p ones. It would be nice if "Very High" could max the quality at 1080p (or the next available level) and "High" max out at 720p (or again the next available equivalent).

I hope that my request doesn't insult you in any way.

"I hope that my request doesn't insult you in any way."
No, not at all. Why do you think so?
You have a very valuable suggestion, I really appreciate it.

I am waiting for more feedbacks for a week or so, and I will implement this option for the next release.

What I meant in my previous post by my request insulting you is that I understand how much effort must go into making these scripts and I myself have no idea how to do said scripting. I just didn't want to sound like I was whining about such a minor feature being left out when you weren't obliged to include it anyway.

The buttons that should appear saying quality: low/medium/high and playback: on/off does not appear in a regular youtube url like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r56jqb-fWVM it only appears in the user profiles url's videos like http://www.youtube.com/user/nigahiga#p/u/1/ngKt...

Is it possible for the script to save the size of the video? You know the button that makes it almost as wide as the screen? I like to keep it in widescreen format but I lose the setting each time I close the browser.

KillzoneNET, check your cookie settings! It looks like you have made Chrome clear your cookies when you close the browser.
This may help: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer... ("Automatically clear all cookies when you close the browser")

Thanks for the script, it corrects a lot of annoying behaviour.

I still have one problem though. If you're at fullscreen at the end of a video, and you then go to another one (still in fullscreen), and you start watching it, and then escape out of fullscreen, then it completely reloads the video, losing all the buffer. Is it possible to correct this? (this is on FF)

It's mostly a problem when I'm watching playlists with autoplay on.

I'm afraid it's not possible. The flash player navigate the browser to the video page when you leave fullscreen, which could not be intercepted.

I'd like if there was an option to make the script automatically set the video to "Large Player".

 
eugenox Script's Author

I've added some experimental functionality to set the player size. Please let me know if you have any problem with it.

Works beautifully Eugenox!

The Auto size I assume lets the cookies decide the size?
Wide is "Large player" from YouTube selection
And Fit is a custom size from Yays! ?

All options are great IMO!

Also, I don't know what you changed but the script is no longer reported as a virus by Avira.

Thank You!

I glad you like it, and yes, you understand correctly.

Thanks for the feedback.

It would be good to make Yays! supporting embedded videos.

With the addition of the size options the standard youtube size buttons are broken. In other words, there's no way to re-size a video while it's playing now.

Would it be possible to implement autobuffering?

 
eugenox Script's Author

Omicron387: Please see my response here: http://userscripts.org/topics/99306

Haar T: I can confirm the problem. I hope I can fix it soon. Thanks.

Whispy: You mean by stop automatic buffering? If so, then I have already tried that without success. The advertisements cause some problems to implement that.

I would like to see Auto light off feature in the next update if possible.
