Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 83.86.84.108] on June 27, 2008 10:08 PM
I would like to add Firefox totem plug-in to the list of things that will annoy new users, even experienced ones. There are 3 critical limitations with totem Firefox plugin:

1. Viewing streaming video is bad since it doesn't handle buffering so well. (e.g. try watching a 480p/720p/1080p video on www.apple.com/trailers with a 1 mbit/s connection).

2. You can't scrub through the clip once it's already playing.

3. You can't replay the video once it's done playing.

To reproduce the above check with www.apple.com/trailers
