    Default Chrome or Chromium?

    Ok, I would love to use Firefox, but it usually takes my whole PC down when it hogs the resources leaving me to push the power button. I wish Mozilla would fix this?

    Chromium, at least it is open source, for some reason it does not like to load youtube videos. I even deleted the files from home and started fresh still the same.

    So I am stuck with Chrome, not my favorite choice.

    So how come videos work in Chrome but not Chromium? I thought they were practically one in the same, is Chrome more up to date then Chromium?

    Thanks, I installed an HTML5 plug in, and now it gives the error for a split second, then loads to video, this is good enough for me to stop using Chrome as my primary browser.

    I have the newer Chromium installed from Packman and it works fine on
    the movie website called out.

    Code:
    ---------
    ~> rpm -qa |grep chromium
    chromium-beta-desktop-kde-34.0.1847.60-1.1.x86_64
    chromium-beta-ffmpeg-34.0.1847.60-3.1.x86_64
    chromium-beta-suid-helper-34.0.1847.60-1.1.x86_64
    chromium-pepper-flash-12.0.0.44-2.1.x86_64
    chromium-beta-34.0.1847.60-1.1.x86_64
    ---------

    I'm not sure there is anything for Mozilla to fix in firefox (at least in the sense that you intend) as it works for the vast majority of openSUSE users.
    So the question that should really be asked is "what is wrong with firefox on your install?"

    and then the same again with Chromium - why is it failing for you when it works for most other openSUSE users.

    are you using Youtube with flash or html5?
    For flash video from youtube in chromium either adobe flash from the non-oss repo or pepperflash from packman should work perfectly.

    For the html5 version of youtube ensure you are using chromium-ffmpeg from packman (not chromium-ffmpegsumo)

    Guys, I used debian based system for years, and I am not sure how to use Packman, I usually use yast or the web install.

    Can you give me some samples how to get Chromium and FF with packman?

    Where do I get the chromium-ffmpeg, yast 1 click only shows chromium-ffmpegsumo, yast desktop only has the sumo version as well?

    You need to have the Packman repository enabled for the chromium-ffmpeg.

    For a step by step guide, take a looksee here: http://opensuse-guide.org/repositories.php

    I am giving FF another chance I found this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...mback/?src=api

    The only other strange thing about FF, if I copy a password from Keepass, I am able to paste it into any place I want, but FF. So I have to go to clipper, and click on it, and only then can I paste into FF?
