Youtube defaults to HTML5 Video, Flash is not natively supported, gnash is obsolete and no longer developed, easy way with an installation of Raspbian Wheezy Operating System is kwebemeyeraway wrote:When I tried to view a YouTube video on using a RGB LED set-up, I got the message: "Missing Plugin". I found this on the forum: sudo apt-get install browser-plugin-gnash
I did that, and followed it with sudo apt-get install icedtea-plugin
Then I rebooted my Raspi. The bottom line is that the "Missing Plugin" message disappeared, but the video still won't run properly! The "Run" symbol in the middle of the screen never goes away, blocking out the center, and there's no sound, though it appears that the video is running.
Any ideas for me to try?
The RPi is primarily for Learning, not as an out of the box Windows PC replacement.emeyeraway wrote:I switched on HTML5, but it didn't solve the problem.
The kweb option appears pretty daunting for a beginner...

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install midori
Interesting. I may have to try it again. I know it didn't used to work, back when midori was packaged in Raspbian - with the original Pis. Maybe it works now, because of the increased CPU power.betruk wrote:That [*] works for me too, thank you for the method.

I think the implication was that Synaptic would help you uninstall the stuff you installed that you now (quite sensibly) want to get rid of. You asked something like "I've installed all this cr*p and now I don't know what all is installed - how can I figure out what/where it is?".emeyeraway wrote:Synaptic didn't work either... Still no YouTube on my RasPi.
Does anyone know if this is a fixable problem?
Only kweb3 can play videos inside the browser; it appears as "Minimal Kiosk Browser (GKT+3)" in the programs menu.emeyeraway wrote:OK, so now I have Minimal Kiosk Browser. When I double click on it,
there is a YouTube option, which, when I click on that, goes to YouTube.
However, when I choose a video to watch, the black rectangular screen
appears, but the little circling icon next to "Loading" just keeps
circling, and the video never appears. Nor does the triangular "start"
it to work. What am I missing?
It's the other way round: I've got no idea, why it doesn't work for you.emeyeraway wrote:"kweb3" is at the top of the screen when I go to YouTube through Minimal Kiosk Browser (GTK3), but YouTube videos never finish loading. There must be something dead simple that you are assuming I know, but I don't.

I get BEAUTIFUL YouTube videos now. But there's no audio. I tried going into settings, and I changed the volume setting from 0 to 4, but that didn't do any good.
I'm hoping there's another dead simple fix for the audio problem...is there?
BTW, thanks for your patience.
