YouTube has been working great in Tails for years

Next steps
==========
0. integrate the test reports below and the next steps they suggest as
part of this roadmap
0. wait a bit for [[todo/smtube]] to mature; if
it's acceptable and merged, then perhaps we will consider the
*easier YouTube* task as completed.
0. [[todo/benchmark_YouTube_HTML5_addons]]
0. make audio and video codecs autoplay (so that the Tails web browser
works in a less surprising way, especially for new users; also, the
idea is that when one goes to a page with audio or video objects,
they want to read them more often than not)
Alternatives
============
* [[todo/Flash_support]]
* [YouTube Video Download for
Greasemonkey](https://userscripts.org/scripts/show/62634)

Test reports

Out-of-the box YouTube support in Tails 0.18
--------------------------------------------
With Tails 0.18, I visited one of the featured videos on youtube which
is <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aK_eKGK4JrM>.
At first it gave me the usual msg flash player, then I added
`&html5=1` on the URL and refreshed the page. It worked as it should
be no issues. After that, most of the videos played out of the box
without the `&html5=1` that where on the right side as
featured/similar.

From one of them I got the msg "The browser does not currently
recognize any of the video formats available."
Later I entered <https://www.youtube.com/html5> where I verified that
my browser does not support h.264, also I had the msg "You are not
currently in the HTML5 trial." Hope that helps.
