Low Quality on flash videos

To automatically reduce the quality of flash videos (on youtube or dailymotion for instance), you can use greasemonkey:

Playing youtube.com (and others) video in VLC

Flash videos used on youtube and some other sites are really resources hungry and don't always work well on the linutop. A solution exist to retrieve these videos and play them with VLC.

Here are the few steps:

  • go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748 using firefox
  • install the plugin by clicking on "Install now"
  • restart Firefox when the installation wizard ask you to do so
  • install this script (just click on the link)
  • browse youtube; a small yellow frame will appear on the top on the page, click it
  • click on the proposed link to download/play the video
