Fixing YouTube problem with Opera 10 (Old Flash? Go Upgrade!)

Well, as Firefox says: -Well, this is embarrassing, also happens to Opera 10 with Flash, Its known if its a server-side problem related to YouTube, or if there is some kind of Bug in Opera 10.

Obviously, the browser version is the latest and also flash, so no doubt due to a YouTube failure, when only a few hours ago we could see it without problems.

After a quick search on Twitter (1, 2, 3, 4, etc …) actually confirms the suspicion, so searching on the internet I found a userscript that seems to fix it.
Here you can see a proof of this is clearly a YouTube programming problems.

To install it, we downloaded from this site.

In Opera, we go to the Youtube´s site, we right click it and select “Edit site options”, we’re going to the Options tab (maybe something like Programming). Click “Choose” and show it the folder where we saved that userscript.

Fixed!.

Another XBOX Snippet

This time this shows when you where “last seen” and what you were doing/playing. The snippet itself grabs the data from a script created by duncanmackenzie.net. The only downside to this snippet is that the data isn’t updated that often and on rare occasions doesn’t return any data, but I believe this is because of too many requests within a set time period. Remember to insert your gamertag instead of rentedsmile.

<?php

$ch = curl_init(‘http://xboxapi.duncanmackenzie.net/gamertag.ashx?GamerTag=rentedsmile’);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,true);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT,4);
$data = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);

$xml = new SimpleXmlElement($data,LIBXML_NOCDATA);

foreach ($xml->PresenceInfo as $mystatus) {
    echo  ’<div id=”xboxlivestatus”>’ . $mystatus->StatusText . ’ : ’ . $mystatus->Info . ’ </div>’;
}

?>

This will be the output:

What is the difference between a cat and a dog
Dogs think: Humans are benevolent, they feed me, and take care of me, so they must be Gods;
Cats (instead) think: Humans are benevolent, they feed me, and take care of me, so I must be God.
