    [news=http://www.google.nl/images/firefox/google.gif]Norwegian hacker Jon Lech Johansen has cracked the lock on Google's new in-browser video player. Johansen, also known as 'DVD Jon' for his work on decrypting DVD security codes, has created a patch for the Google Video Vieweróless than 24 hours after the search giant shipped the video playback plug-in, a tool based on the open-source VideoLAN media player.

    The patch, released on Johansen's 'So Sue Me' blog, effectively disables a modification Google made to the VideoLAN code to prevent users from playing videos that are not hosted on Google's servers. Johansen said the patch, which requires the .Net run-time framework, will remove Google's restriction and allow the playback of video files that aren't on the video.google.com server.[/news]
