Playing YouTube videos on Amiga 500 with new Netsurf 3.6 and plipbox (and Vampire 2)
So, I saw this video from a link about the latest version of Netsurf 3.6 (the 68k SDL version found –> here <–). I’m a fan of this browser and encourage everyone with a classic machine to try it out.
The test video shows the author using this on an Amiga 500 that has the Vampire 2 accelerator and a plipbox (ethernet over parallel port).
Looks great to me for such an old machine. It appears to do a lot of up-front communication, downloading and conversion to mpeg1 to get the job done, but hey, who would have thought a classic Amiga could do that?
