General :: Firefox Flash Video Playback Broken On 4.4?
May 12, 2014
Firefox flash video seems to be broken, while dolphin's still works on 4.4. Any way around this while still using Firefox? I thought Firefox had flash built into it, but I guess not. This guide no longer works: URL....
I have a Samsung Galaxy SII 4G, love this phone. However I have some issues when it comes to flash and streaming video stuff. I can seem to watch youtube videos just fine but trying to go to other sites that have flash or streaming videos, it just doesn't play at all. Also some sites with flash will only show up with a green arrow in the area where there's supposed to be a video. I have downloaded Adobe flash and Flash AIR. Have tried multiple browsers with all having the same problems. I am also having this problem on my Viewsonic G-Tablet.
i just got my GNexus a few days ago and im totally back into the android scene already! Gots me some AOSP rom on it and root :P
Anyways, i tried out firefox / fennec now that my phone should be quick enough to use it properly (unlike my G1 ) and i realized it doesnt support flash. So according to mozilla wiki, it is only supported on 2.3, and on a bugreport i read that it isnt planned to be supported on 3.0 / 4.0, due to adobe dropping support on flash.
Anyways, i am wondering how hard it would be to get ICS supported for flash on firefox? I tried putting the flashlib in the plugin folder of aurora, etc. didnt work of course, since it's a problem in the sourcecode.
I realised that on youtube, flash seems to work! It doesnt actually display a flash missing warning or anything like that, on all the other sites.So i was wondering if that is actually a flash implementation or a custom youtube player by mozilla right there? I don't have an IDE with all the fennec stuff set up, so i can't check on that.
I had install the latest flash player on my android ICS 4.0.3. I tried to play facebook games such as Marvel Avengers Alliance but when it start to load the game, the browser crash to the main screen of my smartphone.
Been struggling with this since receiving my X. Seems like no matter what player I use the playback is jerky. It's very subtle, almost as if the video is dropping a frame or so every second. I've tried the stock player, Astro, Rockplayer, mPlayer, Zimly, Act, and the list goes on and the problem still persists.
I've encoded (using handbrake) with all of the settings suggested on the boards and have tweaked things on my own trying to find the proper setting, but still no luck. The strange and frustrating thing is that the exact same files play just fine on my 1st gen iPod touch (clearly an inferior piece of hardware) and on my wife's incredible. These encodes are of standard def DVDs at average settings (a full movie is about 1.3gb, all h.264 mp4 files.
I was able to improve playback by rebooting the X and then playing the video, but this doesn't seem like an acceptable solution every time I want to watch something. I tend to encode and watch a lot of stuff on my commute to/from work, and I'd really like to replace my touch with the X, but the media capabilities are falling way short. Considering switching to the Inc as I know it's able to play my media properly, but I'd prefer to keep the X for the larger screen size (though the Inc does seem to feel better when using one-handed). I'm on the fence right now, but if the X can't function as expected then it might be going back. Unfortunately I only have until the 1st to return it so I don't think I can hold out and see if 2.2 fixes this issue.
I recently switched to CM7 on my Galaxy S I9000 and it seems I lost all the codecs Samsung bundled with their phone. Video playback is choppy and buggy. I have Googled for possible solutions and tried most of the available players on the market but the problem remains. So how do other non-Samsung Android phone owners cope with this situation?
Whenever I use my browser (Boat Browser or all the others I've tried) to watch videos, I no longer have the option to "Open" or "Download" the file, it just automatically plays in the built in media player.. I want to use MX Player..I used to have the option of what to do with the video, but same thing happening with built in player..I have made sure all defaults were cleared, and I even tried uninstalling the Gallery that is linked with the camera.. No luck.
I'm running 4.3 on my tablet, and still have the option so obviously it is a 4.4 issue, and not a browser issue.
I am currently using an HTC Sensation (with Snapdragon S3) and with h.264 videos, the limit for my phone is effectively at 1080p h.264 high profile level 5.1 with bit rate less than 10 Mbit/s. On my friend's One X, Tegra 3 can easily play 1080p videos up to 40 Mbit/s, which is very impressive. If the video playback capability of the Snapdragon S4 is on par with Tegra 3? Do you manage to get 40 Mbit/s videos to play on S4?
I have a completely broken screen/lcd/digitizer on my Samsung Galaxy S3, debug mode was not on. The phone works as it will still vibrate when turned on and the LED / Menu / Back buttons light up during a boot. USB connector works as well. The phone was not previously rooted.
I had most important data on the sd card and I've already wrote off any other data on the phone as I've since moved on to a GN2. I would like to make use of the S3 (not necessarily as a phone but a server, security camera, etc.). I've read several posts here about my options and looked at numerous google articles, all seem to require debug mode being on or assume/require the data/OS must remain as this is what the user is trying to recover. I do not care if all data is lost on the phone, I just want to make the device useful again.
Am I out of luck if debug mode was not enabled or can I flash through adb via some obscure mechanism? Also note that fastboot is not an option here as the S3 (samsung) does not have it enabled. I am unable to get into "Download Mode" as I cannot see info on the screen.
I have been running my xperia U (rooted) on the old gingerbread for sometime now, finally bit the bullet and unrooted it and upgraded to ICS 4.0.4 via SCC. I quite like ICS its smoother and the phone runs faster (although battery life now suffers) the only issue i am having is I cant play videos on my phone; this includes camera video in the gallery and embedded videos on the browser. I have factory reset about 100 times still hasnt worked and have tried installing adobe air, flash etc still nothing. When i click on a video in the gallery for example i try touching the play button but nothing happens, the thumbnail and video still image is fine just there is no response from touching the play button.
Allshare video playback from other devices over wifi just stopped working. It was totally fine and I have absolutely no idea what happened. It still plays music and shows photos and all the files stored on external devices. The only problem is that it won't play video. It plays video stored locally or on sd card just fine, but when I want to play anything from my note 2 (n7105) or my pc's allshare app, video player shows error message: "Cannot play video. This video cannot be played".
It plays the same files just fine, when I copy them to the device, so I think it might be the case of some transcoding error. It is not a case of network settings - I've checked on 4 different wifi networks and it's the same everywhere. My note 2 works just fine on any wifi and plays all video from tablet or pc. Here is what I tried so far, with no results:
1. Restoring to factory defaults, 2. Wiping cache and dalvik cache, 3. Flashing fresh stock rom, 4. Erasing all allshare apps and video player data
looking for android or symbian s60v5 video play software which can adjust playback speed with 1.2x, 1.5x or 2.0x speed, in windows mobile, coreplayer can do that, but it doesn't support android or s60v5.
I'm using the Note2 with the TW-based Digiblur rom and am having trouble when playing HTML5 player videos in the stock web browser. Any time a video plays, instead of timing out like they are supposed to, the navigation softkeys on the device stay lit while the video is playing. If I pause or stop the video, everything goes back to normal and the keys time out like they are supposed to. The problem is not present in any video player application, including the stock YouTube client.
I have an application with a lot of media data (images and videos) that were previously stored on the sdcard. With that, images and videos are displayed fine in my app.
Now, in order to secure the content more, I wanted to move the content to the internal storage / data dir of the app, which I did. I copied all media with a routine within my app to the data folder (/data/data/com.myapp/some/folders/video.mp4) and adjusted the path in my app so that it would look for the media in the internal storage data directory and not the sdcard anymore.
Everything works fine, images are being displayed (decoded) properly, but videos don't play. They files do exist though - I do not get a FileNotFound exception. But an IOException: java.io.IOException: Prepare failed.: status=0xFFFFFFFC
Why is that? Everything is handled within my one app and the videos have been copied with the same routine as the images, thus having the same permission settings. Looking at the stack trace, it all runs in process id 18060).
Why I cannot playback the video from internal storage? Or how can I?
I have finally run into my first issue with rom manager. I think my recovery is broken, i tried almost all the options it says to do if you have a broken recovery such as clear download cache, install past recoveries, install alternative recoveries, etc, nothing seems to be working. I also have a constant spinning circle within rom manager as if its trying to comlete some task. I would really like to flash a new rom but im stuck , any help would be very much appreciated.I guess i got so used to rom manager doing everything for me that i need to learn alternatives.
What is the best format to playback video through the HDMI onto the tv? It claims you can stream it in 720p to the tv, but I can't get any better than 480p. I'm using the old iphone 3gs format. mp4 480x320.
I've got the Google phone (Huawei IDEOS 8150, froyo 2.2) and would like an advice whats the best way to watch my FLV videos in my phone, perhaps convert FLV to MP4 first (to reduce the size) and then use VLC player or Real Player in my Google phone, if they are available for free download in MarketPLace ?
I was just wondering how people play their video files as I cannot find a media player on the Desire. I am currently using a file manager app and then selecting the file, but I would have thought the phone had some kind of standard app installed that would let me browse and play my content.
I have some videos that I have encoded for use on my iPod. I'd love to get them working on the DI; however, only the audio works when they videos are going. Tried it using the stock video player and the Act 1 player. I converted them using Handbrake as mp4 videos. I have been poking around with different settings for about an hour now and nothing has worked.
A few nights ago I brought up the camcorder to record some video, everything recorded very smoothly after it was done I went to the gallery to check out my video but upon play back the video was very hic uppy. And maybe I thought it was just that portion but it wasnt the whole video plus all my videos play hic uppy now. Anyone else having the same problem? Is this issue happening because of the froyo update.
Both flash was set on auto (yes even the second one) in low-medium lighting. This happened on my first Droid after a week or so of owning it so I returned it. Tried a hard reset and restarting the phone, didn't help. I also cleaned the lens and made sure my fingers were not in the way. The flash does go off each time.
Question about video playback. Do you have to convert everything to .3GP ? I drop some movies onto the SD card and play them just fine. Then went back to play them it was REALLY choppy. Not exactly sure what is causing this. I would rather not covert everything to a different codec.
