Better Loopy for YouTube : Does not work in Nightly firefox

Hi BananasGoMoo,
It might not be the Firefox Nightly, but all Firefox builds. YouTube changed their layout recently, such that it loads YouTube videos from search pages without opening a new page (loading the video player on the same page). The plugin was not activated on those pages to start with, and this has caused the plugin to break in some cases. I'm trying to do a fix soon for that, possibly by coming weekend.

It's possible that you are seeing some other problem, in which case I'd request you to give me more details. I intend to support as many browser versions as possible.

Thanks!
Piyush

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Loop won't work

Hi Sajuuk,
Do you have the latest version of Better Loopy(and do you see the loopy bar or not even that)? Also, which browser are you using - Firefox or Chrome? The easiest way you can determine whether the other extension is causing a trouble to Better Loopy is to quickly disable that (or uninstall at best) for once, and then trying if Better Loopy works after that. If it does, then yes, the extension was causing a problem. Could you try that and help me narrow down the issue? Also, I don't know why do you need to use an extension to Force the flash player. If you go to https://www.youtube.com/html5, you can easily disable it officially.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Replay the cached content

I just checked that if you press the 'replay' button manually (without the script), it is doing the buffering again in that case as well. That might be a temporary problem from YouTube itself - as it shouldn't happen. I will still look into it.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Replay the cached content

Hi Andrew,
I wrote a whole reply saying that "it already does that and doesn't buffer again", but just before posting checked it again, and noticed that it's not doing it right now. That's too bad, it used to buffer only once and just play it continuously. YouTube has changed something again. I will try to fix it as soon as I can. But give me time until next weekend to have a new version.

Not a problem, happens :).

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Seems to be broken again.

Hi stefanrieche,
Yes, could you tell me more about it. You mean the Loopy bar just doesn't show up on any of the videos? Does it happen everytime you open a new YouTube video page, or only when you click from one video to another (from the suggestions). I'm asking because there's slight change in the way both of them work. Also, have you enabled the HTML5 trial in youtube? Is your flash player updated?

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Seems to be broken again.

Hi NightCross00,
I came here to ask the exact same thing - today when I sat to investigate more on this and try the methods I had in mind, I had so much trouble finding a video which was failing - and I came to ask if it was only me, and if not, may be you can point me to a video which fails :) ...

Seems it's fixed for all ! Just made me waste 1.5 hours in watching random funny videos, to try to find a failing one :).

Well, thanks to you for all the help!

Blankie, Hope the issue is fixed on your side as well!

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Seems to be broken again.

Hi NightCross00,
Could you point me to any of these forums, so that I can voice my opinion there and keep an eye on any advancements? I still have a couple of ideas to try from my end, but can only test those this weekend since I'm a bit busy in official work until tomorrow :(.

Thanks again for your help!

Better Loopy for YouTube : Seems to be broken again.

Definitely seems to be a problem YouTube has introduced. Their API just doesn't work at that point. Also, it's not broken for ALL the videos but most of them.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Seems to be broken again.

Hi Blankies,
Yes, I've been seeing the same problem for past few days. I was thinking it might be a temporary problem, but seems it is not since others are also facing the same. Haven't been able to fix it in a clean way yet. Will give another shot tomorrow. Rest assured, I use my script all the time so even I'm heavily annoyed since it's broken again, thanks to YouTube. I will try to fix it as soon as I can.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : loop is not working anymore

Hi trungking,
The issue has been fixed in the latest version. Please install the same, and report back if you see any other issues. Thanks again!

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : loop is not working anymore

@trungking,
Humm ... Yes, I finally got to reproduce this error by chance when I was trying the Loop only button. Thanks very much for pointing this out. I think I know the problem, and will upload a fix very soon!

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : loop is not working anymore

@trungking,
I cannot see the screenshot you uploaded, the link doesn't work. Can you upload it again? I assume you are saying that it keeps on creating more Loop buttons? If that is the case, can you please make sure you don't have multiple versions of the script, or any other Youtube script from other developers?

Also, have you enabled YouTube's HTML5 video version?

In any case, if you don't have too many add-ons, you can try resetting Firefox by typing about:support in the address bar, and pressing the Reset Firefox button and then reinstalling GreaseMonkey and this script to make sure it's not a temporary browser state problem.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Similar script for for non-youtube pages

Hi LancyPants,
I had thought about that, and can make it to work on all pages on embedded *YouTube* videos, but not on *all flash videos". YouTube player has an API which allows me to loop the video. Same is the case with HTML5 videos (and youtube's HTML5 videos are already supported). All flash players don't have an API which I can access. Not too long ago, "Dailymotion" also started to have its own API, so I guess with some work I can do the same for dailymotion videos as well, but again not on all flash videos on all websites.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : loop is not working anymore

Hi trungking,
Is it not working at all for you, or are there some specific videos on which it works? Do you have the latest version? It works for most of us.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Simple script?

Hi U Bless,
You can already do that :). Just go to settings (need to do that only once) and uncheck both 'Timed Loop' and 'Playing all videos'. Save, and refresh page, and you will see a plain 'Loop' button close to the Like and Unlike buttons. Nothing else! Also, if you have the keyboard shortcuts enabled, you'll still be able to use them without seeing them. (And of course, you can disable them as well).

Making the 'script' simple is not my motive, making the UI simple for those who want, yes. To allow users to loop all kinds of videos in all cases, the script has to be a bit complicated unfortunately.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Loopy button only?

No problem ... Just make sure you uninstall the older version ;).

Edit: Oh, I read it properly now. You said two of the 'newest' loopy were installed. That is strange. Some times the GreaseMonkey 'Install' dialog takes some time to appear. May be you just pressed Install in both and it got confused. Anyway, glad it's resolved now.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Improvement

So I guess there was no problem with the original includes. Anyway, I will look into the match ones.

The version problem should be fixed automatically in some time, or if you do 'full' reload. Thanks!

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Improvement

Hi U Bless,
Thanks for the suggestions. I will try to incorporate as many as I can. Also, about the bug, can you give me some more information on that. Do you have HTML5 videos enabled?

The update is actually to fix the reload problem after a major YouTube update, when it doesn't load a new page when you click on a new video link.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Loopy button only?

Hi Alek T,
Do you by any chance have two versions (with the same/different names) installed which are running on the page? What you are describing shouldn't happen and I can't reproduce it. If you have just one version of the script and still see the problem, can you give me more details (using Chrome by any chance, with or without TamperMonkey?). Do you see that problem consistently or only on some videos and some cases?

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Loopy button only?

Yes, go to settings, and uncheck both 'timed loop' and 'play all videos' (and refresh the page once). After that you'll see just a plain Loop button next to the Like and Dislike buttons.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : New Ideas

Aah. By my message I meant that since the user is not using timed loop, he/she can send the 'original' YouTube video link itself (which is found on the browser address bar). If you read it again from that perspective, it might sound ok. I will change the text a bit to make it sound a bit clearer. The choice of word 'whole' for 'original' was admittedly a bad one.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Not working on firefox 24.0 mac OSX

:) ... My pleasure! Also, with this new release I changed the defaults (of both toggling Loop, and settings) to be Ctrl+Alt instead of just Alt. But that will affect only those who hadn't Better Loopy already installed.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : Not working on firefox 24.0 mac OSX

Hi worldsdream,
I have uploaded the new version which fixes this, makes the script more reliable otherwise, and adds this interesting new feature of "Remembering a loop" for a particular song/video.

 

Better Loopy for YouTube : New Ideas

Hi Sandra Fiffe,
Hummm ... The pop-up feature was there in YouTube sometime back, but they removed it. I will see if I can add it.

Thanks!
