I recently installed VLC Media Player 0.8.6 in Yellow Dog Linux 6.2 on my PS3 by following this procedure...
I then used the Firefox add-on MediaPlayerConnectivity (0.9.2) to link video files for Quick Time, Real Video, Flash (FLV)etc... to VLC as the default player for these video formats. (Note:
I had to manually add VLC as the FLV default player, b/c MediaPlayerConnectivity did not automatically do this.)
Now...on Youtube when I double-click on the little movie film icon to play the streaming file through VCL the player opens, but neither the video or audio play even though I have VLC setup as the default player. I have tried playing some Quick Time (mov) and Windows Media Video (WMV) streaming video and they work fine. I noticed that there's a new update (0.9.5) for VLC. Do I need that update to make sure Youtube (flv files) video will play? If so, how do I install the 0.9.5 update after downloading it in Yellow Dog Linux 6.2? Please give step by step instructions as I am still new at this.
Thanks in advance for any help.
