    Improper video playback on Firefox/YouTube

    Online videos don't play properly for me. Videos play like a badly skipping DVD.

    I'm using Fedora 19 and Firefox 21.

    I've got lightspark, gnash, and gstreamer. I have about every gstreamer plugin I could find, as well as the lightspark mozilla plugin. I read that lightspark will fall back to gnash if it encounters an usupported format and for this to work I shouldn't install the gnash web plugin, otherwise there will be conflicts.

    Here's a list of everything (pertinent that I can think of) that I have:
    gstreamer.x86_64                                      0.10.36-3.fc19           @koji-override-0/$releasever

    Am I missing something? I coudn't find a "bad-nonfree" plugnin for gstreamer1. Should there be one?

    Or are there conflicts? There are like 4 different "bad" plugins for gstreamer.

    I used this page to test out my flash functionality:
    The flash animation on top worked, but the flash video below just gave me a black box with the following message:
    We're sorry, Lightspark encountered a yet unsupported Flash file
    SWF file:
    Cause: Type mismatch in EventDispatcher::removeEventListener
    This is different from what I get in YouTube, so I must be having different problems with different formats.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Improper video playback on Firefox/YouTube

    What desktop are you running, gnome or kde? If gnome you'll need to install the gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-ugly plugins to get totem to play videos on and of the net. I install gecko-media player in kde. Everything works that way. Btw, why don't you just install the flash player for Youtube?
