    Holy... 3GB. Maybe we should have it spread over torrents. (in case it is CC license or something like that)

    Seems you like Germany?

Give Flashrom a try- the folks are extremely good, and if something should go wrong (never reboot until it's fixed), they're quite good at finding the issue and getting you up & running again.
      What do you mean? I thought that Flashrom is only a BIOS flasher and Coreboot is OpenBIOS. Or... do you suggest me to contact Flashrom authors for help in modyfying propetiary ASUS BIOS to get my graphic card work, right?

      Thanks in advance.

        I asked him already, but he has no interest:

        He only wants the best flash player:

        No answer so far if we can buy the video free for the general public:

          Flashrom and Coreboot share many of the same people, which is why I suggested posting to those lists. If you're looking for some help with modifying the ASUS BIOS, there's several forums on the net that deal with bios and motherboard hacking- notebook review is the only one that's coming to mind right now.

          I haven't searched for your problem, but if your board+BIOS has an artificial limitation, there's a good chance someone's documented it and how to get around it.
          Sorry I can't be of more help.

            OK then why not use one of the many video download plugins available and play it in your preferred player? I assume you already have the supported codec support in your system since you already use the youtube script.

              This is the worst example of hypocrisy in the open source community... Someone who repeatedly speaks up for open source software and community now REFUSES requests to make some content accessible with open source software -- even though he won't be making any money with it. So, why?

              Even more sad, this is not just Phoronix either, I was shocked to find that the linux.conf.au live stream used Silverlight! Many other conferences have published their videos in proprietary Flash or WMV formats.

                  I hate this kind of hypocrisy in the open source community... Someone who repeatedly speaks up for open source software and community now refuses requests to make some content accessible with open source software -- even though he won't be making any money with it. So, why?
