VIDEO testing on XO 1.75

Thanks for the instruction and I am getting good quality video playback on the XO 1.75 now! Work on 12.1.0 and 13.1.0 loaded XO 1.75.
After seeing how well whaawmp work I won't even bother to play with the JukeBox or Browser as performance is very inconsistent.

Is there a way to make a selection whaawmp when I right clik on a video file. Nice if there is a whaawmp launcher via the Sugar interface without need for command line!

Have a great weekend. Hope the licensing stuff can be work out and I hope HK is in the +ve side!

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$ chmod +x youtube-dl$ ./youtube-dl -f 22 ahv_1IS7SiE$ whaawmp ahv_1IS7Sie.mp4The 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 full screen.You can get the 360p version (36MB) with the following command:$ ./youtube-dl -f 18 ahv_1IS7SiE
