View Full Version : Gnash 8.8 + youtube
24th August 2010, 03:04 AM
I was reading an article over at Phoronix on how Gnash 8.8 was claiming 100% compatibility with youtube. (Like we haven't heard that before) so I looked in Koji and found 8.8.1 in there. But it works like all the previous verions for me. Not at all. Has any one else had any luck getting you tube content to work with gnash 8.8?
The rpms are here
and you need gtkglext-libs installed which you can get from yum.
The article is here.

I was playing around with TinyCore on an old "Pentium" box and they had FirefoxBeta 4 packaged for it, so I tried it out, went to YouTube and enabled their HTML5 mode. I was watching videos without having to install a plugin. Kind of blew me away.

I've tried Gnash and Lightspark on F14; neither of them have worked. Youtube doesn't play anything, and most other simple Flash apps don't work either.

The point I would one day like to be able to make is that Flash and Silverlight could be replaced by web standards. Microsoft has already said they would embrace HTML5 instead of Silverlight as the "way forward" for rich Internet Applications. Just searched for silverlight, html5 and found several articles about it, including (Silverlight, et al., 2010).
Silverlight, HTML5, and Microsoft's opaque development strategy. (2010). . Retrieved November 6, 2010, from arstechnica DOT com/microsoft/news/2010/11/silverlight-html5-and-microsofts-opaque-development-strategy.ars
