Now, as we all know no one read readme and everyone just want unpack and run, there is couple of fast answers:

Resized Image

q: why it say on running that i have old mui ?
a: because you need very latest mui version from http://muidev.de. New mui have new (and necessary) class for autoform filling (don't forget to enable it in options), as well as have some necessary bug fixes.

q: did youtube works right from beginning ?
a: youtube is crap: not everything in html5 still, youtube have different ways to display vids (for one you need scripts , for another ones not, for some you need to spoof, for others not). So, some vids will works for you
without anything to do from your side, another ones, may not works as it. For some you need to enable scripts from
Fab (be sure to have latest versions always from: http://fabportnawak.free.fr/owb/scripts/) , for others you need to disabled them. For some you need to spoof by different os, for others are not. In general spoofing
as iPAD always make any video works (through slower, as rendering window a bit bigger). I.e. if video didn't works
as you want, try to spoof it by all the oses to found better one.

The very good explain and howto from Fab about youtube/odyssey are there:
http://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum ... t_id=87113#forumpost87113

q: why when i come to some videos, i have "The Adobe Flash Player is requered for video playback, get the latest one" ?
a: because on that video youtube want flash, and while on morphos swfdec plugin get rid of that message, it still only visual, and in end you need to do the same as on morphos: i.e. spoof, or enable/disable scripts, etc.

q: how fast it ? will it works on my a1200 , or sam440 ?
a: window mode quite slow in compare with all modern browsers on x86. Reason is that for window mode still cairo
rendering in use and no acceleration done. So, on pegasos2 / 1ghz , you can have about 20fps in 240 quality. I.e. a1200, sam440, and anything like that may be out of question.

NOTE: That the same on morphos. For real use they use fullscreen-overlay(!) based playing code, which based on

q: why only window mode, why no fullscreen/overlay as on morphos so to have youtube vids plays fast ?
a: because making proper support of fullscreen in odyssey mean making use of p96 overlay, and while there is number of issues like how just to make it all properly, another ones that all RadeonHD do not have overlay support, what mean for them needs some different kind of code. Implementing of all of this can take a lot of time, so better to have just pure SW rendered window mode, than no have html5 mediaplayer at all. When somethin will be done in that term, odyssey port will be updated.

Of course, ppls with 1ghz and more will have no worry mostly. For few x1000 betatesters 480 quality are good enough by speed.

q: will there new bugs ? how stable is it now ?
a: Of course new bugs will be. How stable it : to be tested by you all.

q: you say binary will be 55mb of size, but its 63, wtf ?
a: i leave specially some debug symbols in, so users crashlogs will be of good use for me. But if you still
want to have 55mb of size, just go to shell , and do "strip odyssey".

In end, thanks to:

-- to Fab, who make it , open sourced and help us to port it.
-- to Thore, who works on mui4 and update/fix it everyday
-- to Deniil from OnyxSoft who rewrite some necessary parts from mos to os4 in odyssey
-- to Joerg Strohmayer because of who we have proper languages support, threading curl, native mouse pointers and some fixes.
-- to Hans-Joerg Frieden who give me his fresh version of sqlite to use with Odyssey which he use for TW.
-- to all users for their donations/support (its motivate, yep), as well as for bugreports and tests.
-- to everyone who in adequate while still use amigas (i know, its hard to be sane !:) )

Holiday in Cambodia !

 Good job to everyone
Well done everyone involved. I have to wait tonight to get back home to try this. I didn't understand the last sentence "who in adequate" but I understood the meaning. :-)

Congratulations on this release.

A quick hint for youtube: visiting youtube.com/html5 will result in most videos being played via HTML5 instead of requiring flash.
