My two 5.0 Legacy machines have lower spec than the machine you describe and work fine, but yeah youtube 360p in a browser. However, I found an app called minitube that does youtube 720p no problem. Also VLC can open youtube links 720p.

I tried 64-bit on the AMD and it locked up and crashed intermittently every day or two. Tried different kernals, but ended up going 32-bit legacy and no problems since.

Fantastic enigma9o7.

Minitube does not work fine under BL 3.2.1. Old, not working version in repo. New version misses the correct dependences. Anyway smtube works fine as YT engine with smplayer as YT player.

To clarify, to get minitube working, I did have to jump thru hoops. If I recall correctly I had to sign up as a developer on youtube or something to get a key that I saved as a text file. I followed some instructions I found online.

re youtube playback:
the only solution is youtube-dl, because it's the only one that is being updated often enough to keep up with youtube changing their api all the time to prevent people watching their videos with anything but their own interface.
that said, mpv will use youtube-dl if it finds it, and quite a few media players can use mpv as a backend. e.g. smplayer.

oh, and youtube-dl needs to be updated constantly, there's no use installing it from the repo. one can download a self-contained youtube-dl that has a -U option to update itself.
