A lot of people are experiencing red/pink tint on YouTube videos starting yesterday. The cause seems to be a combination of Flash 10.2, a recent YouTube change and the users graphics cards and seems to be browser-independent (can occur in Firefox 3.x, Firefox 4 beta as well as Chrome / Chromium). Here are some solutions which will hopefully fix the red YouTube videos bug.
Videoporama is an application you can use to create video presentations from pictures that runs on Linux and Windows. It comes with various transition effects, option to add sound to the video, many different presets and uses mplayer for previewing the slideshow before processing it.
This post is just a short summary of some updated packages in the WebUpd8 PPAs.
WatchVideo is a QT application (but also comes with a command-line version) to play, download, rip or convert (to Ogg) videos from Bliptv, Break, CaracolTV, CineGratis24h, CollegeHumor, Current, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Sapovideos, TheOnion, Vimeo, YouTube, and others.
If you ever tried to record your desktop using GTK-RecordMyDesktop (it's probably the same using the KDE front-end but I didn't test that), you've probably noticed the video doesn't work on YouTube or it's rendered ver
As you probably know, a Google I/O conference was held today and a lot of blogs said they will announce big things.
There are other ways of doing this, like:
- a Greasemonkey script which replaces the Flash Player on websites with VLC or Mplayer but that was kind of buggy;
Minitube is a native YouTube client for Linux and Mac OS X. The really useful part about Minitube is that it does not require Flash Player.
Of all the available tools for downloading and converting YouTube videos to audio (but it can convert to video formats too), Elltube was the easiest to install, get working, and the most reliable.
Linux Video Converter makes it easy to convert your videos ready to be uploaded into video sharing websites (low-resolution high-quality). For now, it only supports YouTube but probably formats for other websites will be added soon.
You can see YouTube videos everywhere nowadays: on blogs, Google search results, even some news sites. From time to time, you can even manage to find something interesting. This article will show you some Linux tools you can use to save and convert YouTube videos.
GNOME’s Totem Movie Player now includes a plugin for searching and playing YouTube videos without leaving the player, and without Flash. It’s installed by default in Ubuntu 8.04, and works fabulously!
Best Greasemonkey and Stylish scripts (both are Firefox extensions).
If you needed to convert a YouTube video to, say, 3gp format for your mobile phone a few months back, you would probably have to use several applications ran with impossible to remember options. First, you would have to get the video in .flv format using youtube-dl and convert it to avi, mp4, 3gp and so on with a huge command like ffmpeg -i a1Y73sPHKxw.flv -ab 48 -ar 32010 -b 700 -s 320×240 -vcodec xvid -acodec mp3 video.avi (don’t use it). But fortunately, times change, things evolve and new awesome applications hit the Linux streets (not all the time but still..).
Question: I recently made the switch from Windows to the Linux distro Ubuntu 7.10. Most things are working well but one thing that I can't get working is YouTube in Firefox. Any ideas?
It drives me crazy that YouTube videos start playing automatically. It's especially annoying when you click on a link from a co-worker and then the phone rings... and then your speakers start blaring a completely inappropriate sound, usually accompanied by terrible dancing.
There are dozens of tools for downloading videos from YouTube and/or converting those videos to some format other than .flv. It’s hard to choose the best one, as they all have advantages and disadvantages. Here is a list of online tools allowing to download YouTube. Also you'll find a way how to covert downloaded video in Ubuntu.
