Hi,

Can you add Very Low Definition 240p for YouTube please.

It's not getting picked up but you can see it available with ViewTube disabled.

The script doesn't pick all streams.
For progressive it picks LD/360 MP4/WebM and HD/720 MP4.
For adaptive (DASH) it picks SD/480 or higher.

Do you want DASH 240 MP4/WebM?

OK, thanks for clearing that up.

It'd be nice to have the option in case I need it. I can still stream dash to my media player along with an audio option, right?

It's terrible using the YouTube player once you're used to this script lol.

Just throwing this out there while I thought of it.

Any chance of adding a x1.5 speed increase to the script?

I'll add 240 and 360 DASH, but I think all videos have progressive 360/LD.

You can pass video and audio streams to an external video player using a browser protocol or manually:
mpv --audio-file "$a" "$v"
cvlc --input-slave "$a" "$v"

By speed I assume you mean HTML5 video playback speed. You can change this in the script:
else if (type == 'video') {
obj.playbackRate = 1.5;

html5 gives video format or MIME Typ not supported or similar.
webm-option streaming actually functions, thank you; leave/left it mostly on auto-settings.

Mime type not supported means mp4 is disabled or not supported. If it's enabled in about:config (mp4 and ffmpeg flags) install ubuntu-restricted-extras.

thanks

it is strange as it is enabled in about:config mp4.enabled mediasource.mp4.enabled both true and now with ubuntu-restricted-extras mp4 still would not play in ff52-esr with viewtube

What about ffmpeg or gstreamer in about:config? If you have the gstreamer flag, install gstreamer-libav.

Test with: firefox somevideo.mp4
