Good evening,
I have a problem with Tenfourfox, I have a Powe Mac G5, 2 CPU 2Ghz, 1GB RAM, with OS X 10.4.11. Since a few days ago youtube does not let me see the videos. The black screen appears on the screen with a message "the browser does not currently recognize any of the available video formats". I've tried various versions of Tenfourfox but the problem remains. Please help me, this problem suddenly appeared.

    The video you linked to requires H.264 playback capabilities, which can be installed for TenFourFox by following directions on this page:

    Your system doesn't meet the recommended minimum specs. Since it's a G4 7450 the Enabler should work but playback won't be fluid.

    You can check what's installed for your browser here:

    I have two versions of TenFourFox
    One version, the newer, will play music youTubes but is slow to load
    and very temperamental.
    but once the song starts it plays correctly.

    The other older version I use to watch Youtube movies and videos but
    it will not play music videos.

    Here's a trick I found with the older version:
    Open or try to open any YouTube.
    Once the page opens use the Youtube search field to search for a movie title.
    When the movie is clicked on from the YouTube search results page,
    the movie will open as it should.
    But no movies will open directly from other URLs or desktop web
    icons, without getting that incompatible message.

    Music or movie videos WILL open from URLs or desktop Alias icons when
    using the newer version of TFF.

    I cannot remember or locate whatever I used to log in to the TFF site.
