    So any of you who stream or download say 1080p videos, notice that its not possible anymore? Seems that google changed to dash format where the video and audio is split. I hope somone finds a workaround soon.

    Works fine here. You have to press the gear icon, then quality. I see 1080, 720, 480 just fine, using Google Chrome.

    it's a firefox only problem and an html5 only problem, switch to another browser or flash playback.

    Oh Opera <3
    Oh Youtube add free <3
    Oh no youtube comments <3

    Youtube changes to fucking often, I stopped caring, as long as videos continue to work, I won't be bothered.

    I just use the YouTube app on my PS3. Does exactly the same videos only this absolutely guarantees that those annoying text boxes fuck off and die. Used to be able to switch them off with one button on Firefox. What happened to that idea?

    google is deliberately breaking YT browser compatibility with FF to force people to use their spy browser chrome ,just like they force people to use gmail by merging YT and gmail logins,and try to force people to use their real names and have fucking 2 field name BS and want to get rid of channel names (which they will eventually make mandatory)

    just like they merged YT with google+ to force people to use their failing fucking piece of shit social spy network

    FUCK GOOGLE and FUCK GOOGLE+ BULLSHIT

    makes me never want to buy an android device or use any of their software products ever again

    Don't use your real name. How will they ever find out? They won't. Just bullshit your name, problem solved. Stop being so damned paranoid. What's stopping you from using fake information?

    It's just annoying to have to use a "name". What's wrong with a username?!
    Also, it's just some stupid thing they want you to do so they can link you to a Google+ account faster. They did it to me twice now, and I turned it off both times. But with the comments getting more and more Google+ oriented, it seems we're not far off from Youtube+ or Google+ Video...

    I can use my username just fine. Click on your name and switch it. I'm using mine without a hitch.

    Sadly Opera 15 is a kick to the teeth.

    I love the previous versions thought.

    Best Browser.

    I know, Opera is turning into another sheep that thinks the more version numbers you can put out in one year equals a better product.

    Nope not for me, I'll stick to 12.16 for as long as it takes <3
    Indeed, it's the best browser I ever had!

    For now it's possible, I'm still using my username. But it keeps asking me to change it, and when I click "No" it gives the notification "Okay, we'll ask you again at a later time." WHY?! No is no, don't they get it?!

    Just use a fake name or click it away and don't clear your cookies from your browser again.
    Problem solved.

    Well a good chunk of people use Gmail already. But I myself was not pleased with the integration. I honestly don't think they'll ever get rid of usernames. Please stop being so butthurt.
    With love,

    And go after me telling the NSA to screw off on YouTube :/

    Seriously, why are people so effing paranoid. If you use the internet at all, they already *gasp* have at least some info about you. Oh noes!

    People need to calm down.
