To Play YouTube Videos and Flash Content inside Second Life
Second Life video play back
may use the "Media on a Prim" (MOAP) mechanism itself based on the QTWebKit library and requires a
Flash plug-in to show web pages with Flash content such as for YouTube. You
should install the generic Flash Player for your Operating system. See http://get2.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
Do not use Internet Explorer when using that link. If Internet Explorer is the
only browser you use, please ensure that you select Flash Player for Other
Browsers, because the Internet Explorer version of Flashplayer is not
compatible with any Second Life viewer.
One easy way to get the right plug in available is as follows:
- Download and install the Firefox viewer from http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/
if you do not already have it available. It does not need to be selected
as your default browser.
- Visit http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
and if necessary install the Flashplayer and its associated plug in for
Firefox (which is also the generic Flashplayer). Untick the boxes to also
install Google Chrome and any optional anti-virus systems or
tool bar installs that are offered if you do not want them.
- Look at a sample YouTube video to make sure its working
and to accept any popup flash settings requests.
- Start Second Life and video play back requiring Flash
such should now work on Media on a Prim screens in Second Life.
