Firefox html5

Postby craigevil » 2010-07-18 21:08

Imagine my surprise when I go to watch something on youtube and it plays in mplayer rather than flash.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.7) Gecko/20100713 Firefox/3.6.7
In about:config change html5.enable to true.

Under the video are these options:
Download | Low 5 | High 34 | High 35 ♦ View without Flash | Low 5 | High 34 | High 35 ♦ View Flash

This is how I've been watching YouTube videos for some time using Iceweasel as described here. Well if it can be done in FF/3.6.7 without greasemonkey scripts, then I think it must be preferable.

It's odd that you can't enable the html5 parser in iceweasel 3.6.10-1 in about:config; it's not there.

The option exists in 3.6.12pre, which is what I'm using.

Can't find an iceweasel 3.6.12pre even in experimental.

It's Firefox, not Iceweasel:

Just to comment that I've found that, on my Testing desktop, Iceweasel 3.6.10-1 plays YouTube without flash well in GNOME-MPlayer using the greasemonkey userscript with very low CPU use, about 10%.

w3 announces that html5 still is not finished and should not be used yet.
They says that the goal is to be finished at 2013.

Just wanted to notice that :)

With regard to html5, just to say that it works very well in Squeeze with Gnome Web Browser 2.30.6 (Epiphany). For details, please see this post.
