Browser Updates~Be Ware or you may be Weary



Google Chrome Version 23.0.1271.95 m

Chrome and Firefox Browser updates.

Troubles abound with UTUBE downloads in Chrome, Real Player updates and ADOBE Flash.

I first noticed there was a major problem when I clicked on the Download This Video in Chrome while browsing in UTUBE.

It sorta of popped up and just as quickly disappeared with no download screen in site.

Nothing I tried worked and then I read posts where it mentioned it would NOT work in the latest Chrome update. They are working on it and yep the check is in the mail somewhere scenario.

Google “what happened to Download this video in Chrome” and you will see I am not the only one with a few more gray hairs.

I got so frustrated that I uninstalled Real Player and now I am going to uninstall the REAL PLAYER downloader bullshit.

UPDATED OCTOBER 11, 2012: Chrome 22 (released on Sept. 26, 2012) does not currently support our Download This Video feature. At this time, the only solution is to use Internet Explorer or Firefox for downloading videos with RealPlayer.”

Disabling the pepper flash from Google did nothing. It still does not result in a “do you want to download this video” window.

It  worked before the latest update. You just went to your plug-in page and disabled it and wala, it was back.

Not happening this time around.

Back to Firefox for download helper which I have a registration key for~ dewelper, the best. No more balloons in the left hand corner of downloaded video.

I can live with no UTUBE video downloading in Chrome as long as it works just dandy in Firefox.

I did find another site that lets you copy the URL of any video and then download it from there. I tried it and it does work.

You can check that out here.

Keep Vid

Problems with Java after update. Tried updating my web pages in Page Builder and it kept telling me Java was not seen on my computer.

Uninstalled old Java sources.

Went into the register and cleaned any remnants of Real Player, Real Player Downloader, Java OUT.

Ran CCleaner again.

Reinstalled the latest Java Updates again.

Enabled in extensions and plug-ins in both browsers.

IExplorer is not EVEN in my zone.

All is good for now.

Oh and Click and Clean which has been my mainstay for browser cleaning along with CCleaner didn’t want to show options until I got the Java situation worked out.

Two days of bull crap all because of Chrome 23 and Firefox 17.01 updates.

I wish someone would get with the programming.

My head is spinning and my eye lids are drooping 🙂

My Two-Cents Worth~

The WWW is a wonderful thing,but hey folks nothing is FREE,you pay one way or the other.

If you delete all your web history and you have a bad memory you are only making it harder on yourself.

The government knows everything about everyone already.Why do you think acquiring a new drivers license is so hard these days?

I mean don’t even bother unless you have proof of who you are,who you married,who you divorced.Where you went to school,where you were born.What your dad did for a living.You get the picture…Right?

If you feel someone is watching you,and you are a paranoid person from the get-go stay off the WWW.You are being watched and there is nothing you can do about it.

That said ~ stay safe and don’t be stupid.

Be careful of email attachments.Make sure your passwords are not easily compromised and change them often.

Make Naked Security your companion and friend on the NET.

Windows Secrets is another great place for info and tips on sailing into unknown waters.

Email Scams

For all my readers that fly with me on ~Galvanic Jumpings~

Beware of a new email scam.Usually comes into your yahoo account and asks you to change your bank,google and Facebook passwords.

Strange it doesn’t say to change your yahoo password because hey they already breached it.

It’s always a good idea to change your passwords to something more secure then say a four letter word.I did some research and came up with the same issue.

What about the future of Flash ?

I was trying to play the latest episode of “Once Upon a Time” on ABC player and granted I have the latest browsers and updates it would not play.I found this interesting article on the future of Flash and how Google does not allow the plugs for ABC Player to operate.

Video Encoding & Streaming Technologies

Long time passed since my last post on this blog. I have been very busy in an important video streaming project but this is not the only reason for my absence. I have also wanted to wait and take all the necessary time to analyze, ponder and “digest” the infamous Flash affair.
I will not hide my bitterness about the fact, but I’m also more optimitic now, after I have seen the real consequences and have had the time to elaborate on the future scenario. I’ts not all a bed of roses but I’m somewhat optimistic.

First of all, fortunately, I’m not limited to Flash technology in my consultancies. I work with .net technologies for many years and I have designed and deployed successful streaming services in HLS with both Wowza Server and FMS 4.5

You also know that I’m an encoding expert with important success cases and a deep knowledge of commercial and open source encoders…
