As of today, it seems that the quality detection mechanism in both iTubeX and FlashToHTML5 are again broken. I'm currently looking for a way to fix it, but it appears to be more complex this time.

I hope to be able to release a fixed version very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!

An updated version of FlashToHTML5 (2.6) has been submitted to MacUpdate and should be listed shortly. You may already download it from my website or through Safari's update system.

Here's A Funny One.
I tried EVERY way way I could think of to download this extension using SAFARI. Remember, this is a Safari extension.
NADA. Not from anywhere could I download this software.
SOOOOOOO.
I launched Olde faithful and DISCONTINUED "Camino" (my real browser of choice since ages).
Ka-Boom--------Instant download.
Odd isn't it. I even went to the developers site using Safari.
WHY DID THEY STOP CAMINO?
So now I have FlashToHTML5 installed on Safari.
MacBook 2.4 Intel Core 2 Duo
Safari 5.1.9
I dunno.........I'll just go with it.

I don't know why they stopped Camino. As far as I am concerned, it was the best browser by far.

This extension on Safari 6 is just amazing (don't take my word instead try it on any video and notice the difference in the activity monitor app with and without this extension enabled)--something I didn't expect. So far everything seems great with this extension. I just wish I could choose the quality of video at the actual video settings and not in the Safari preference panel for extensions (even for 1080p HD selected the difference is incredible). A few more features to equal flash and this extension will be simply perfect. Thanks to developer for this.

Detection mechanism in both FlashToHTML5 and iTubeX should be working fine again. No updating necessary! ;-)

Fix immediately please

EXCELLENT!

Using a DualCore PowerMac G5/2.5GHz (a machine which you can't buy), I had chopping YouTube videos.
Now they play smoothly, even while they're loading!!

Try it. My guess is that it will most likely make some videos display instead of doing nothing, as I've heard that nothing Flash will work on iPad. HTML5 is not Flash, so replacing the Flash objects with HTML5, makes me expect it to work with iPad.

Shane-Smith had trouble on 25 Mar 2014
The auto update doesn't seem to work on the new version and I think I know why. On the last version it was listed as 3.1 in the extension window in safari on this version it's listed as 3.0 even though it's listed on Macupdate as 3.2.

Derekcurrie had trouble on 16 Sep 2012
Installing version 2.0 on my MacBook has not been working correctly. After repeated attempts and reboots of Safari I found that version 1.8 had not been replaced.

Therefore, I suggest:
1) Duplicate the extension, providing you with a copy in case you need it.
2) Try the installation by simply double-clicking the file FlashToHTML5.safariextz.
3) Verify in the Safari Preferences/Extensions tab that you have indeed installed version 2.0. If not, move on to #4:
4) To force version 2.0 to actually install you have to first UNinstall the previous version using the 'uninstall' button in the FlashToHTML5 interface. Then close the Preferences window.
5) Now perform the installation AGAIN using the duplicate you made. It should install fine this time.

It is possible that there is no actual problem with the installer and that this is yet-another bizarro Finder bug. But I have not seen this problem previously and expect it is a bug in v2.0 of the extension, one with this easy workaround.

BTW: I also found that the previous version of this extension was NOT being automatically updated via the Safari Extensions option to "Install Updates Automatically". This update didn't even register as being available. It has to be installed by hand, from my experience, again indicating that there is some sort of bugginess going on with version 2.0.

Joris Vervuurt (developer) replied on 18 Sep 2012
I think I know why it doesn't replace the previous version and why the previous version does not update to 2.0.

It's because I switched from a free Developer Apple ID to a paid Developer Apple ID. Due to this change in ID I think Safari thinks it's not the same Safari Extension. Sorry.

With the next update (2.1), this should be no longer the case if you have 2.0 installed already. The workaround Derekcurrie mentioned for installing version 2.0 is correct.
