YouTube NPAPI DOES NOT WORK for 6 months When will you fix it?

  • I need NPAPI - don't suggest me PPAPI. I also tried various versions of Flash from 13 to 18.

    Video Example of a problem:

    This happens when I just open new videos. On two computers. Restarting anything doesn't help. Scrolling down with mouse makes video Appear. This happens since Opera 16. How about making your browser usable and fixing it?

  • I need NPAPI

    No, you don't need it. You can use HTTML5 player (active it using this link) or use Flash Player PPAPI which you can download from here. It is totally useless use NPAPI Flash Player because it is not even developed for Opera anymore.

  • Both (PPAPI/HTML5) give Stereo sound on my 5.1 System. NPAPI gives 5.1 awesome 5.1 surround sound on my system for YouTube music. Solution?

    More of less Info here:!topic/chrome/3KHrijRT5rM

    But I'm not gonna add anything to shutcut because it will not work when I click external links (they don't use shortcut).

    Apparently nothing related in Opera Flags?

  • YouTube's maximum channel output is stereo. It does not support more than 2 channels at all. The difference is that NPAPI will enable speaker fill and close the channels while PPAPI does not. This is easy enough to fix by enabling speaker fill inside your sounds control panel. It will upsample 2.0 to 5.1 and leave 5.1 alone.

    For example:
    Youtube speaker fill
    Real 5.1 surround

  • "For example"

    ^ Plays only stereo from all channels.

    "Real 5.1 surround"

    ^ Plays perfect speaker fill. Speaker fill was already enabled on my system.

    So let me understand: There is HTML5, There is PPAPI, there is Chromium, AND THERE IS NOT A SINGLE PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO NEEDS ON DEVELOPERS 5.1/7.1 PLUGIN? Every person in the world uses stereo. Is that correct?

  • HTML5 is a scripting language used for web pages. PPAPI is a standard for plugins for web browsers. Chromium is an open source web browser. I have no clue what you are trying to get at.

    ^ Plays only stereo from all channels.

    Right, because it IS only stereo.

    ^ Plays perfect speaker fill.

    That is a 5.1 audio source. It does not use speaker fill. Speaker fill is only use when you have more speakers than you have channels of audio.


    It has nothing to do with plugins. YouTube stores its videos using at most stereo encoding of the sound data. It doesn't matter what plugin you use its still only stereo. Its just that some can fill the speakers by default and some don't.

  • So where can I find those that can fill speakers by default? 🙂
