Gnash as default player in Midori

Asked by 2blue on 2012-08-26

Is it possible to set Gnash Shock Wave player as default in Midori? Adobe flash is not an option for powerpc but for some odd reason I have discovered Gnash streams well in Midori. There are numerous problems for powerpc browser plugin packages needing debugging, but this should work in Midori I think. Some youtube videos stream clear and fine, others revert to html5 for no reason I can find (I am not in the test trial). I cannot figure out which browser plugin package is involved with midori, but have the general Gnash browser package.

I have been doing some searching and testing to find media players that can stream in Midori on powerpc, and I am still searching the options.

Whether YouTube uses Flash or not is not up to Midori. What you can try is setting GST_PLUGIN_SYSTEM_PATH to an empty or invalid folder, to intentionally break HTML5 video support.
