This is a bug in the Flash player. The volume keys on your keyboard are handled by gnome-settings-daemon, which uses a passive grab on the volume keys. The way that X works means that an application needs to have focus in order to receive keypress events, so, what happens when you press the volume keys is that the flash player window sees a FocusOut event ...

I assume you entered the URL correctly (no https but http, and only the v=... part, like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wxawmjnRWY)? Open the Extras menu and click on Messages. Now click play again and see what message's there. My guess is it's lua error: Couldn't extract youtube video URL, please check for updates to this script VLC parses YouTube's ...

I made a little research and now I can come with the answer that is not so simple as it seems at first sight. I searched a lot on Google, and almost everything is pointing to the ~/.cache/chromium/Default folder. It’s the folder where you should find google chrome’s cache files. But there are no big flash video files (like YouTube has), just small ones. In ...

I'm not sure that this is the right place to ask that question, since it's got nothing to do with Ubuntu (or any specific OS for that matter), BUT... Since it's already there, I might as well answer you :) A note first: Before anyone thinks that it is 'not right' to try to circumvent a rule like this, there can actually exist a number of situations when ...

There's a fix posted here. It seems to have done the trick for me, but I'm not 100% sure it's the same problem for you. This is a problem with Flash and its hardware acceleration, not YouTube itself. In case the above site is unavailable, here's the fix: sudo mkdir /etc/adobe echo "OverrideGPUValidation = 1" | sudo tee -a /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

I wrote a small bash script that automates the excellent solution from Radu: #!/bin/bash pidNum=$(ps ax | grep flash | grep chromium | grep -v "grep" | sed -e 's/^ *//g' -e 's/ *$//g' | tr -s " " | cut -d " " -f 1) procNum=$(ls -l /proc/${pidNum}/fd | grep Flash | tr -s " " | cut -d " " -f 9) filename=$1 if [[ "$filename" == "" ]]; then ...

First create a batch file which is a text file containing a list of URLs of videos from YouTube that you want to download. The URLs should be arranged in a list having only one URL and nothing else on each line, with a new line for each URL in the list. Save the batch file with a name that is easy to remember like batch-file.txt. If the multiple files are ...

You can convert to audio only formats using youtube-dl itself, although it still downloads the video and then converts it. To do this, use -x or --extract-audio to the command, for example: youtube-dl -x http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iyeUcFKRv4&feature=c4-overview&list=UU1KPy3cAAj0i0RIFC_SzjMg

Therefore, it's not recommended to install additional addons or plugins into the Tor Browser. The lack of plugins means that Youtube videos are not available ...

You can test to see if it's a problem with Chromium's built-in Flash player by joining YouTube's HTML5 trial, which will switch you over to YouTube's new HTML5 video player. If the videos work then, something is messed up with your installation of Chromium/Flash player. Try reinstalling it. If they still don't work, it may be a problem on YouTube's end or ...

In my case I solved it this way; First install "PulseAudio Volume Control" if it is not installed yet; sudo apt-get install pavucontrol Now start "PulseAudio Volume Control" and go to the Configuration tab.

You can convert existing downloaded files using ffmpeg from the command-line ffmpeg -i "input file.mp4" -acodec copy "output file.aac" The "acodec copy" part is the bit that doesn't change the audio stream.

If you were using YouTube's HTML 5 player (as the "never ask again" in the popup suggests), the fullscreen setting is managed by Firefox (and therefore has nothing to do with Ubuntu or Gnome). Go to about:permissions (just copy it into your address bar), select www.youtube.com from the list and change the setting in the Fullscreen box.

One thing that worked for me was disabling the "VLC Multimedia Plugin" in chrome://plugins. Then I discovered this question, which suggested replacing the chromium-codecs-ffmpeg package with chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra.
