Recently I'm playing a bit with the new feature available on the new Adobe Flash Player 9: the support of h264 encoded video for flash videos.

Well.. seems that this will really give us incredible developments as this technology it's really super powerful.

As an example of it you might have a look at this h264 flash video h264 demo (right click on the video to go fullscreen).

The resolution and definition of this video it's really incredible. Even if the video is being downloaded from a website in real time the quality is really high but still it plays without interruptions and smoothly.

And the quality.. it's amazing. Actually higher than lot of divx which are commonly available in Emule and friends.

Wouldn't you pay a couple of dollars to stream online your favorite movies with superb quality and without the hassle of time consuming and bad quality with P2P ? ... Let's see what will happen.

Youtube recently added a new feature to the video player used to embed Youtube videos on other website.

The new default player, once the video completes playing, will display a list of related videos.

While this feature could be useful for some users it is probably not wanted on Youtube video aggregation websites.

Fortunately it's possible to disable related videos.
Let's see how.

UPDATE: The following guide, originally written for Firefox 2, has been used successfully on Firefox 3, 3.5, 3.6, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. Users of Firefox Portable edition (same versions) also have been successful using this guide.

The Windows computers available at my University permits login only by autenticated users (students) who don't have Administrator access and permissions.

Installing software on those PC is then not possible.
