View Full Version : YouTube videos and feeds don't play on Beta version on my ATV

January 17th, 2010, 11:53 PM
Since I installed the Boxee beta on my AppleTV quite easely following the step by step thread found on this forum, i'm very surprised that none of my YouTube videos or feeds plays.

I just have the line stretching yellow dots over and over but nothing play.

Some apps works like Revision3 and GeekBrief.TV

Any idea?

this sounds like no flash ..did you install the flash player?

Thank's for the reply Marcel,

In my understanding, Flash installation was a part of FirefoxInstallScript.sh wich I did.

How can I be sure that is installed correctly?

I have exactly the same issue. Everything appears to work, including local movies, SMB shares but when I try and play any streaming content (YouTube, iPlayer) I get the stretching bar symbol, then a white flash, then the stretching bar symbol. There is no hang, as it is possible to back up to the previous menu.

According to NitoTV, Flash is installed.

You describe it better then i did, i have the same symptoms, including the white flash.

If you ever find a way to correct it, pls let me know. I'll do the same on this thread if I find something.

This thread seems to describe the same issue.

anyone found a fix for the issue? although there is another thread speaking to the issue, nothing seems to have a fix, i understand it to do with the file being unavailable in the firefoxscript, but anyone know where else to grab file from?

Follow the updated instructions posted as a sticky at the head of the forum - worked for me (still no iPlayer, but You Tube worked in a brief test).
