Default Chrome HTML5 Youtube extension - 12-09-2009, 05:02 AM

If any one uses Chrome here and has some lag on youtube videos, then check this out.

https://chrome.google.com/extensions...aahjcdpdjdpfco

"This extensions is a simple content script which replaces the standard Flash-based YouTube video player with HTML5's new video tag which natively supports video. Video played this way will be more efficient and require less CPU."

It'll only work on youtube and I don't think you can watch full screen... but here you go.

Hmm... not sure. When you click install it should just pop up a confirmation box. Oh, just realised, you have to be running the beta to get extensions (Google Chrome (BETA))

I've been playing around with it, and it can sometimes be a little buggy, but I think that can be expected from a pretty new extension with a new standard.

UPDATE: It seems that this particular extension always chooses to play the highest res version of the video that youtube has, so it can still be choppy.

If anyone is still interested, this extension has been updated with some options and is more stable.
