Ok, try a test… Copy this string, then run streamlight from the menu just like you said: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPtv14q9ZDg
If it doesn’t work, run Synaptic from the Control Centre, System tab, Manage Packages option or from the Applications, System Tools menu, reload and search for streamlight. Maybe its out of date and needs to be updated.
Okay, thanks. I’ll try that and let you know what happens. I just did a dist-upgrade on my laptop running v17.1 and I got lots of updates. I’ll also try that on the P-III. I didn’t think of that but I think you’re right and it needs an update.
BobC, thank you. That was it. It needed to be updated. I will have to remember to update and upgrade once in a while. I use several different systems and I didn’t remember to make sure I had the systems updated on that P-III. Once I did the update and dist-upgrade it is working fine.
I guess this streamlight is an option to the smtube I had been using. I can’t see a lot of difference in the results of playing with streamlight versus smtube. I actually like the browser from smtube better. I guess the only difference I noticed is that I get to choose the resolution of the video and can download to disk with streamlight. That could be useful.
