YouTube issues-non compatible browser?

CD version: 17.4

I am finding it more and more difficult to see videos on YouTube lately.
If I try to go here for example; ( and many other places, the list is increasing daily)

I get error message with the following statements:

Your Browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our FAQ about HTML5 video

When I click on the URL, the information says:

YouTube HTML5 Video Player You are in a trial for HTML5 video on YouTube. Some users of supported browsers are automatically entered in to the trial. If you wish to leave the trial, use the link at the bottom. HTML5 is a new browser technology that allows us to show videos without the Flash plugin. Your comments will help us improve and perfect the mixtures we're working on. So jump in, play around, and send your feedback directly to the brains behind the scenes. Supported Browsers We support browsers that support both the video tag in HTML5 and either the h.264 video codec or the WebM format (with VP8 codec). These include: Firefox 4 (WebM, Available here) Google Chrome (WebM) Opera 10.6+ (WebM, Available here) Apple Safari (h.264, version 4+) Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (h.264, Available here, WebM support avaliable here) Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8 with Google Chrome Frame installed (Get Google Chrome Frame) Notes Fullscreen support is partially implemented. Pressing the fullscreen button will expand the player to fill your browser. If your browser supports a fullscreen option, you can then use that to truly fill the screen If you want to find videos with WebM formats available, you can use the Advanced Search options to look for them (or just add &webm=1 to any search URL) Additional Restrictions (we are working on these!) Videos with ads are not supported (they will play in the Flash player) On Firefox and Opera, only videos with WebM transcodes will play in HTML5 If you've opted in to other testtube experiments, you may not get the HTML5 player (Feather is supported, though) What does my browser support?

Video tag


Is this settings or is something in the making with future CD Updates?

this is what I got…

Yes YouTube has yet to convert all videos to all the HMTL5 Codecs, so in your case your using HTML5 trail, your bound to run into a video that wont play. I suggest you leave the trail for now if you have flash. If you do not have flash, and do not wish to have it, keep the HTML5 trail.

I checked for that video, it has not yet been converted to any of the HTML5 Codecs.

Ok, so what it means is, if I don’t want flash player ( which I don’t have, it’s been un-installed),
then we wait until youtube finishes their trials so the videos can be played without flash player plug-ins?
It has not got anything to to with CD settings etc?
is that correct?

And the short answer is, Wait?


Yes, When YouTube finishes their trails you will be able to view every video in HMTL5 without flash player. It has nothing to do with Dragons settings, that video has not yet been turned into a HMTL5 compatible codec.

Thank You, much clearer now…,

Your welcome :slight_smile:
