What are you using to play your ogv and youtube videos? I never had much
luck with jukebox or with browse. Whaawmp works well.
Can you share an example ogv video that you are having trouble with?
If you use youtube-dl you can get the video files youtube serves, but
the version of youtube-dl in f17 doesn't work anymore so you'll have to
download the latest version.
$ wget http://youtube-dl.org/downloads/2013.02.25/youtube-dl
$ chmod +x youtube-dl
$ ./youtube-dl -f 22 ahv_1IS7SiE
$ whaawmp ahv_1IS7Sie.mp4
The above will download the 720p mp4 version of the video from youtube
(in this case 120MB or so) and play it with whaawmp. My XO-1.75 running
12.1.0 plays this files beautifully, don't forget to press f to select
You can get the 360p version (36MB) with the following command:
$ ./youtube-dl -f 18 ahv_1IS7SiE
