    Hi all, in these days, I'm doing some trials on my ATV1000 regarding Youtube.
    I've found results, really interesting, that I would like to share with you.

    The first is that: we can always watch youtube videos (on mobile devices) even without flash player installed (because, in m.youtube.com, videos are not in flash but in RTSP/3GP with H263/AMR) and so there is no reason to link video problems on youtube, that some ATV1000 devices have, to flash player.

    We must consider that, on an android device, we need to install flash player, only for flash content on web pages or, if we want to enter youtube, or similar sites (with browser set as desktop), but in this case, videos will be unwatchable, because we will be trying to watch heavy, not optimized, flash videos on a device build with 800Mhz CPU and 512Mb RAM.

    The second is that: we can have an higher video resolution (similar to MKV) on hd videos from youtube, if we set browser as: Ipad (but we need more bandwidth, if not, we can have problems with buffering).

    Here is the link to video: Youtube Mobile and Flash Player - YouTube


    In the first part, I uninstall flash player and I show that videos on m.youtube.com are played the same, also without it.
    In the second part, I change browser setting from: android ---> ipad, and I show the improvement to the video after this change (even if, really, it can't be appreciated a lot, for low quality of my filming).

    Interesting testing. When I have some free time, will do that myself too. For now, I contribute with this reply I got from Judy, of Geniatech support:

    Yet my FV-1 plays flash video fine and the Geniatech is meant to have a better processor.

    When you will do these trials, let me know your results

    Just a curiosity...when you watch videos, do you enter: youtube.com or m.youtube.com?
    (browser set as: desktop or android?)
    Because there is a great difference between them.
    In youtube.com, videos are in flash, and devices as ATV1000 or FV-1
    have great difficulties to play them; instead, in m.youtube.com
    (youtube for mobile devices), videos are not in flash but in RTSP/3GP
    (format created for mobile devices as our ATV or FV-1), and are played smoothly.
    Did you watch my last video?
    There, I show that my ATV1000 plays videos from youtube, also without flash, because really,
    (setting browser as: android or ipad) I enter in m.youtube.com, where videos are not in flash.
    I invite you to do this trial: using your PC, you must enter in m.youtube.com, and try
    to play a video...it will be impossible, because, those videos are not in flash, but optimized for mobile.
    Let me know...

    Hi sznemo77, I've never used Chainfire3D and, as I seem to understand, it gives improvement to graphic, inside games.
    Really, I'm not a lot interested to games, so I ask you, if the installation of this app can give other advantages and improved performances to our device.

    Flash videos appear to play fine for me on my ATV2000, plays HD clips on Gametrailers.com without any issues as one example.

    Flash banners are rendered by the CPU and they will cause slow downs but the Flash video element hands off to hardware acceleration were present which the Amlogic chipset is more than capable of handling.

    Could be bugs were the Flash hardware acceleration is failing to be invoked by the driver or something along those lines.

    gio965 I don't think you will see any improvements unless playing games or using the dynamic backgrounds with Chainfire3D, for an overall OS improvement Cyanogenmod would have to be ported by Geniatech which is meant to run faster than stock Android.

    Hello.

    I apologize for my bad English, I am using the google translator.

    Not Only I have a TV which would be equivalent to ATV1000 (identical on the outside and inside).

    I have this firmware 1108 which is a customized version pra Not Only TV, but the only customization is seen in the bot start when displaying your logo.

    Although set date November 08, really is 06 months and therefore no improvements I have noticed in the 0909 version.

    This 0909 version is very good because as I've noticed changes the cursor is hidden after a few seconds, the program results AnTuTu.apk 250 points up some more, more fluent in everything and even flash videos from web fluid can be seen.

    The downside of this is precisely the Flash version is rome when switching to another web video and can not gain more than 720p (HD and FullHD).

    I do not know if you understood, but with the web of reproduction I mean a small window video posted on this website such as the previous videos.

    If I go to youtube and view the video big, everything is great and works well.

    Online channels (Live TV), also work well but the same thing happens, the screen goes black if I change the video source (look for another page and another video vision).

    He returned to his original version, which if you can put in full HD from the settings menu.

    But this version has the problem that the videos from the web will be jerks and play and forget about online tv because it is the same (although improving something).

    At the end of the month and tell me they will be android version 2.3 which are tested.

    According to Spain could be supported even before my disposal.

    I think if version 2.3 has improved its kernel version update_0909 and solve also the problem of Flash, but what is all an optimization of 2.3 versus 2.2, we certainly have a good product.

    Note that 2.3 increases the power phones for example, up to 25 percent, which will note the change for the better with version 2.3


    Well hello to everyone and if I remember something more qu meant, so I will comment.

    Hi next121, thanks for your clear answer, regarding Chainfire3D.
    I'm happy that, with your device, you have no problem to watch videos from Youtube or Gametrailers.com.

    I tried to play videos from Gametrailers.com and (in my opinion), also in this case, we don't watch flash videos but optimized videos for mobile (you must consider, that we have the same hardware of cellulars).

    I made this trial: I uninstalled flash player and (with browser set as: ipad or android), I was able to watch, the same, those videos (but their extensions were: .mp4 and not: .flv).

    Instead, with flash player installed and browser set as: desktop, I was not able to play them correctly and (with my ATV1000) they resulted jerky (their extensions, in this case, were in flash - .flv).

    This is my experience...so, if you may repeat these trials (I don't know if you have a firmware, with flash player inbuilt or not), then you will make me know.
    (Have you made those trials that I suggested for youtube videos?)
