How to fix this mod (HTML5)

⚠️ GMod developers are working on a fix, this can't be fixed by the mod author! ⚠️

This addon no longer works on the default version of Garry's Mod. To fix this, you need to switch to the 'x86-64' branch of GMod (Note: this branch is under active development and may cause your game to crash). Read the guide for switching to the 'dev' branch on the wiki[wiki.facepunch.com], but remember to choose 'x86-64' instead.

As for why this mod broke, YouTube has stopped supporting old video encodings which GMod relied on. The GMod devs are working on a fix by updating the game to use Chromium/CEF. You can follow progress in the #next-update channel of the GMod Discord.[discordapp.com]




Alternative: Metastream (not compatible with Garry's Mod)

I'm working on a new web application, called Metastream, which provides similar features to this mod and supports more websites to synchronize. Try it out if you're interested.

Usage
1. Spawn the Big Screen TV from the spawn menu ('Entities' tab > 'Media Player' category).
2. Press use (E) on the TV to turn it on.
3. Hold C while looking at the TV to reveal the media queue.
4. Press the 'Add Media' button.
5. Navigate to a supported media page and press the 'Request URL' button.
6. Watch!

Console Variables
mediaplayer_3daudio 0/1

mediaplayer_volume 0.0-1.0

FAQ

Q: Can the ads be closed on YouTube?
A: Yes. While in Sandbox, hold C to reveal the mouse cursor. Then simply click the 'x' on the ad that appears on the media player screen.

Q: How do I adjust the screen brightness?
A: If the screen is too bright, it's likely caused by either bloom or HDR. Try disabling Bloom in the video options menu.

Q: How do I request a website to be shown on the media player?
A: Enter the following command into the console (must be the server host) to allow any URL to be requested: mediaplayer_allow_webpages 1

Q: Why do I only see a white screen on the media player?
A: I've been told this is due to running the game in DirectX 8 mode. Try setting the DirectX level to 9 by opening the console and typing "mat_dxlevel 90"

Is it possible to turn off captions when playing YouTube videos?

There needs to be a range option, so that when you walk away from media players, they drop in volume.

Strange: I can request PNG images, but MP4 files are considered invalid... I swear I was able to do this before... Maybe that only worked when I had web pages enabled?
