Google Chrome 49 and Youtube Troubleshooting

Recommended Posts

In order to solve the problem with YouTube in the last working version of Google Chrome (49.0.2623.112) under Windows XP, you need the option to adapt the user agent. In my case using ModHeader and the following entry:

USER-AGENT	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0

Update:

Request Headers:

USER-AGENT	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.112 Safari/537.36 OPR/36.0.2130.80 (Edition Campaign 67)

The message "Google Chrome 49 and Youtube Troubleshooting" was aimed at the users so that they can still use YouTube without any problems under Windows XP! (by the way Chrome 49 does not work on a P3 !!)

Hi guys, I use Chrome 49 also.

Without agent Chrome opens Youtube in 2 seconds with the "We’ll stop supporting..." message.

With agent Chrome opens Youtube in 8 seconds without the "We’ll stop supporting..." message.

Firefox ESR 52.9 opens Youtube in 8 seconds also.

Is this normal?

It finally happened to me today, on Chrome 49 youtube forced the new layout which opens very slowly compared to the old one. I want to try if I can always open youtube in the old layout.

https://www.youtube.com/?disable_polymer=true   - This opens in the old layout but anything you click opens in the new layout.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/restore-classic-for-youtu/dhnphdafbioamppmaiaebbdobfhbhnlm   - I tried this Chrome Extension but says file is removed.

Does someone know how to get this extension file and install it?

https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/39405-youtube-classic-for-2018-polymer-disable/code   I also found this, I don't know if it is safe or how to use it. What happens if I press "Install this script"?

Thanks in advance.
