Hello,
I want to ask again for help to a problem I had in the past that I have not manage to resolve.
I have a 7'' netbook that runs the sylvania image from this site.
I use opera mini as web browser.
When there is a video, it pops up windows media player that loads nothing....
I had asked in the past and it was suggested to use SmallTeak or a Registry editor to try to make the change so as to "open" core player instead. Can some one help me as how to do it?

The newer Youtube videos won't even open with core player in CE. About the only thing you can open are simple old protocol MP4 videos. Of course there are a variety of Divx players that will work with those in that format...but normally you only find those in converted movies.

YouTube currently downloads in MP4 format, Rich - at least in RealTimes on my PC. Is there a "new" MP4 protocol?

Not sure...some of the videos I download from YT will play on my desktop, but not my HPCs despite being the same file format.

The actual website gives you the video in HTML5 format, don't they? So if you had a fast enough processor and an HTML5 capable browser (which doesn't exist AFAIK for WinCE devices) it could work. This is one of those things I've wanted to tackle, but I can't program worth, well, you know what. But if I could, I'd have loved to take a shot at making a Youtube app for older devices that would stream the media in a handheld friendly format.

Zetakey Browser for CE is supposed to support HTML5, but it's a memory hog and pretty slow even on CE 6 devices.

Now that's interesting. Too bad I don't have a CE 6 device, maybe OP could give it a try and report back?

I understand that there is a posibility that in some formats core player will work, where windows player is sure (from my experience) not to work at all. I have never managed to watch a downloaded video with wp. With cp is a partial success. But the main problem remains.... How I force opera mini to open cp instead of wp when i click on a video link?

Assuming that Opera Mini is simply parsing the data to another app as it is streaming, the the default player is probably specified in the registry. However, in CE, is Windows Media Player part of the operating system or a separate entity...I can't remember...
