    Youtube HTML 5 player

    Post by Swarles on Sun May 04, 2014 6:21 pm

    So i've noticed on Chrome youtube defaults to the HTML 5 player now. I was having some tearing problems on Ubuntu, but i changed some settings for my video card and now youtube plays better than it ever has on Linux, so I was pretty happy with the switch away from Flash.

    Then I got on windows, and the HTML 5 player in chrome was a horrible, jumpy mess. I tried changing some settings on chrome and via my AMD software for my video card but nothing has really worked. Anyone else having this problem?

    Youtube seems to work better for me in Chrome. It's horrible with Firefox now. *shrugs*

    I fixed youtube on windows by deleting a .dll file in chrome's folder. Not exactly ideal but at least it works fine now.

    On a sidenote, while googling stuff for a fix, I ran across this very thread on the results >.<

    Unpopular opinion. Google Chrome sucks.

    I find myself rotating browsers. like i use one for awhile until i find some flaw in it, then go "fuck it" and switch to another one. I have opera, firefox, chrome and IE all installed. (IE only by default though).

    Chrome now and forever.  Every time I've used Opera in the past, I've  experienced issues with some website that would not load properly.

    IE is terrible.  I hate people who use IE when they're not being forced to do so.
