Assuming that you are using the same python script on both OSs, check its documentation: YouTube formats Using the -f option and other related options, you can specify the video format to be downloaded from YouTube. If you have an order of preference, specify the formats separating them with slashes: -f 22/17/18. Instead of keeping a video ...

One method I've heard of is to use DNS servers (OpenDNS and Google DNS come to mind) outside the country, that way requests will direct to other youtube servers outside the country. Bear in mind this may adversely affect some things, because your connections may have added network hops between you to what you're trying to reach. Oh, another option: You ...

You can use mencoder (in your distribution, it should come in the package mplayer). If you wanted to extract 3 minutes starting at 21:50, you would do mencoder -ss 21:50 -endpos 3:00 your-video.mp4 -o output.mp4 -oac copy -ovc copy It's not exact: the starting point will be adjusted to the beginning of a frame. It's possible to work around this, if it's a ...

I agree with the comments saying youtube_dl is probably what you want, but you will also be interested to know: YouTube's performance at downloading FLV is far slower than downloading the MP4 for whatever reason. Therefore, avoiding Flash entirely may help more than a download accelerator.

You need to install the gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg package. Then, to see if it works, go to http://youtube.com/html5 and see if there's a green tick next to H.264.

If you don't mind using vlc (which livestreamer is based on): vlc --start-time $((10*60)) "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w87fOAG8fjk" Where --start-time is given the time offset in seconds. For livestreamer I don't see any available option right now to add this functionality. They downgraded the functionality of the wrapped vlc so to say :). Source

The reason you are having difficulty is that Adobe stopped releasing Flash for Linux: For Flash Player releases after 11.2, the Flash Player browser plug-in for Linux will only be available via the "Pepper" API as part of the Google Chrome browser distribution and will no longer be available as a direct download from Adobe. Adobe will continue to ...

If you wan't to use only a proxy server for specific sites you should look into PAC files. It is basically a JavaScript file which let's you specify which proxies should be used for which domains. If you have your own network at home you can combine this with wpad - web proxy autodiscovery and Chrome, Firefox, IE and probably Safari. This is probably the ...

To find proprietary driver for ATI card head to the ATI download page and check if a Linux driver is available for your model. Alternatively, you can use Ubuntu's driver finder by going to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers. If installing the driver doesn't help try the newest version of Flash by getting it from Adobe.
