Sometime over this weekend--I think after an update--I started noticing that videos on Youtube in Chrome have spots on them, and that's with both Flash videos and HTML5 videos. This doesn't happen on other video websites, or even in Firefox.
I've been contemplating for years giving up on Flash, but never managed to do it. It's the worst piece of software on my old laptop, it's slow, buggy, resource hungry etc.Anyway, a few weeks ago I finally removed it and I've been Flash-free ever since.
I've been trying to watch webm videos on youtube lately with only partial success. Some of them play alright, while others request Adobe Flash. For example, this video requests flash, and this one plays without.
I'm wondering if it is possible to use only html5 on the AOSP browser. I don't like that the flash on it now plays videos more pixelated than normal.If i go and view the same flash video with an only html5/non-flash browser, like chrome, it plays much more clearly. Alternatively I would like to have it switch to the YouTube app like chrome does when you click on a youtube video.
Who likes to watch stream videos inside the flash videoplayer? Not me.That's how I got rid of it.First of all you have to install the flashblock plugin in your browser (there's a version for chromium and firefox). Other browsers, like xxxterm can be configured to obtain the same result.
