    Hello All,

    I have just tried Firefox, Chrome and Opera from the 9.0-RELEASE packages and none of them seem to be able to play the HTML5 youtube videos. I only get this message:-

    Code:
    your browser does not currently recognise any of the video formats available
    
    I noticed that one of the default options in the Chrome port was

    Code:
    Compile and enable patented codecs like H.264
    
    So since this was default, I assume that the package from the FreeBSD ftp should have worked.

    Does anyone else have this working?

    Edit:
    Just noticed that all 3 browsers do play HTML5 videos perfectly, but only about 1% of youtube videos work because of adverts apparently. Seems a little daft. Especially when youtube should be explaining the reason rather than just blaming my web browser :S

    Hi,

    On my PC-BSD machine I run flash with nspluginwrapper which is installed by default.
