    I've had one of those derp-mah-brain-dont-wanna-work days and I'm somewhat embaressed to ask this, but just as of today when I load any video on youtube, I get this error

    Error: BVDCORE.videoFormats is undefined

    Granted the video then loads and plays just fine, but having to dismiss the dialog box is irritating after awhile.

    I'm running Firefox 8 (Nightly/Minefield), granted it's a Beta version, but it works very well. It only started happening today and I know neither it or me have done any automatic and/or manual updates. So update cause is ruled out of the question.

    I use Ubuntu 11.04 as well. No Windows install, so can't blame it on Windows.. that's ruled out of the equation. I can also rule out Ubuntu itself as I haven't updated or done anything drastic recently (Firefox 8/Nightly was installed weeks ago btw.)

    Has anyone else had this problem with any version of Firefox?

    If that is the case, then maybe YouTube itself had an update that caused FF8 to get that error.

    Yeah come to think of it, I do remember them changing the look and layout a bit, but that happened before I had this problem..

    Not suggesting it's underlaying nessesarily, but..eh I'll tolerate it for now. It'll probably work fine tomorrow knowing my luck.

    Ohai Rydian!

    It seems to be Java based.

    I turned off easy YouTube video and the error stopped

    Thanks.

    Oh, thought I should let you all know.

    This only seems to affect Firefox Nightly/Minefield/Version 8 Beta.

    Regular FF Stable is fine.
