How to make YouTube your Tube, or how to watch those flash movies w/o flash (Updated)
Are people sending you all those fancy youtube links, but you
don't have a decent operating system (*cough*) to watch them?
TGEN on IRCnet's #NetBSD brings us the solution: Turn them into something
that mplayer can play in three easy steps:
- Paste your YouTube URL into
- Follow the instructions and save the file as .flv (Flash Video)
- Use mplayer to play the .flv file
Update: Meorge Michaelson writes me that
there's another site
that works with YouTube and Google - just save the .flv file
and run mplayer on it.
