Question:

I keep getting the following message:

You need Flash player 8+ and JavaScript enabled to view this video

when I press Ctrl+Shift+Y to download YouYube videos.

Tried my luck with all different types of videos (at least a dozen times).

I use Internet Explorer 8 with Adobe Flash Player 10 and JavaScript is enabled. I am sure it's not a problem with IE and JavaScript. Since I am able to play flash in Internet Explorer that can be ruled out as well.

Hints

The above message is displayed when the swfobject JavaScript library, which is responsible for embedding the Flash-based player within an HTML document, fails to do it successfully.

To help us diagnose the problem, try opening the yt.htm file, located in the [BIN] subfolder of your SuperMemo installation folder, directly in your Internet Explorer to check if the message persists. Before you do that, please enable script debugging by unchecking Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer) in Internet Explorer : Tools : Internet Options : Advanced : Browsing. In case of an error, please report it back.

The library is remotely loaded from a Google CDN network @ http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/swfobject/2.1/swfobject.js. The above message could also be a result of the CDN network-related problems of transient nature.

Answer:


Technical

The message "You need Flash player 8+ and JavaScript enabled to view this video" is not displayed by SuperMemo but by the script that embeds YouTube videos in SuperMemo.

The script can be viewed in the file: [supermemo folder]\bin\yt.htm.

That script is then converted to run your actual video from this file: [collection folder]\temp\YouTubeVideo.htm
