If what Fab said is the cause of lag (youtube's slider), would it be possible to optionally use a local control panel for the streaming video? Even if there's no timeslider and only volume, play/pause. As I said just optional for those who need it faster.

I think you are slightly confused as to what gnash / flash do.

They 'play' the swf file. call it youtube.swf for the sake of argument.

youtube.swf is a program which retrieves and plays video from the youtube site. Flash / Gansh / swfdec etc are interpreters for that program. )providing quite a high level API which incudes video playing etc)
To leave out bits you'd need to modify the swf file, and I doubt that youtube are giving away the sourcecode to it.

If you want to play flash videos with out all the flash controls etc then use getvideo to download them and then play them afxgroups other "product" (Mplayer)

It's excellent to know that OWB development has not stopped.

I tried some example SWF files consisting of slide shows, text and some with keyboard entry and it all worked rather well.

I haven't tried movie playback yet.

Good work!

Cheers,
Bean.

Yes, I'm aware of that much, what I suggested is if there could be an alternative to proper decoding the swf as in streaming the video with local controls in the page instead a la tubexx, but embedded. That's what most people need a flash plugin for, or so I believe.

The sliders doesn't work very well right now anyway.

I get partial overdrawn background and in no way proper display of those gadgets.

otoh i have one flash video of "the llama song" (annoying, but catchy ) which displays far too slow and lags way behind the audio even when played from HD, so it may be some other problem cumulating the strewaming lag aswell(?)

@afxgroup

I can send you the llama

Donated today (I also informed Troels in another thread as of why I noticed the bounty just today- the page was folded in the bottom part-)

As for Cairo HW acceleration, Rogue (is he one of the Friedens?) said in Amigaworld's Timberwolf thread that it is already implemented in the build they have in-house.

He said it was implemented while doing Timberwolf.

maybe the next release will include this upgrade as well (hopefully)

There is a crashlog for you, just forget to notify

http://crashlog.os4depot.net/?function=view&crashlogid=259

Personally I hope that you can compile a new OWB's version with NPAPI enabled

There seems to be a new build of Gnash online (28-11-2009 - New version of Gnash Player).
Works - of course slow with youtube videos on a SAM. BTW the youtube.py script doesn't seem to work anymore. I substituted the 'swfArgs' in the script with 'SWF_ARGS' - now it works again.

Thank you, afxgroup, for this new release!

edit: Nevermind, seeing now that it clearly caches the movies ... silly me

Andrea, i'm not sure, but could it be that the OS4 version of Gnash does not pre-read and pre-cache the movies? (At least i don't see something similar on the displays)
That would probably explain the lag and skipping in videos? (just for the sake of testing i tried to turn off pre-caching on a pc laptop and it started lagging and skipping like on the Amiga, so it might not be a problem in your port)
Would it be possible to add such a cache and let Gnash (by default) read and play the video from the (hd/ram-based) cache, instead of streaming he whole thing...

What do you think?


edit2: Going back from Fullscreen makes the sliders vanish

Check the date I had just signed up back then! I reached the Bounty page from a link at AW and when I was there, the gnash bounty was collapsed. At least on my PC browser (didn't have a Sam back then...).
Even now it must be said that new comers may not reach that page through Amigans.net.
