youtube errors webslides bug

started by Stephen Jones on 21 Nov 08
  • Stephen Jones
    I get this odd error for Youtube pages in Webslides where the video ought to appear. it says "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash Player." I get the error in both IE and Firefox & on multiple computers

    However, I already have the latest flash player, and the videos work normally when I access them via my browser, rather than via webslides. I get this error both when I use the "play" function and when I move through the slides manually. Also odd is that in my little webslides widget (205 * 155) it at least displays a picture of the video...

    Any hints?

    We will look into the issue.

    I am having the same youtube issue.

    Curious to know if this is specific to Youtube or to any web page with embeded Flash files. Have you tried web slides of other pages that have embedded Flash files?

    Here using Adobe Flash Player MAC 10,0,22,87 plugged into Safari 4 Public Beta (5528.16) on Mac OS X 10.5.6, Intel.

    Stephen, Terry: are you still bugged by this issue? If so, please report details e.g. version of Flash Player.

    Glad you are still thinking about this issue.

    I am using Adobe Flash Player version
    Universal Binary for Macs, Firefox

    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009032608 Firefox/3.0.8

    Here is a screenshot for the error message I am getting:

    I get this error message for firefox 3 and flock 2.0.2, but the video works in safari Version 3.2.1 (5525.27.1)

    But I need this to work in a Firefox environment because that is the default browser for all university image drops. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Google is my friend ;)

    screen shot to to and I reproduce the bug in my Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-GB; rv: Gecko/2009021906 Firefox/3.0.7

    Error console of Firefox presents a few lines, which I won't paste here. I'll take a peek in error console of WebKit too. Let's progress this.

    Good on ya and your Google detective work.

    I tried disabling Adobe Flash Player and maximising QuickTime, but no joy; I guess that Flash capabilities of QuickTime do not extend to this type of Flash media.

    Where Firefox fails with ,
    Camino 1.6.6Int ( 2008121219) succeeds; both browsers Gecko-based, and whilst I have not tested Internet Explorer I recall Stephen's opening paragraph

    > both IE and Firefox

    - so I guess that the issue is not specific to rendering engines.
