{January 31, 2009}   How to watch YouTube videos without a SWF player

Easy: Install this, and add this bookmarklet to your favourites.

Or install “youtube-dl”.



Miry says:

With youtube-dl you have to go back to the command line, download the video completely and view it. With my proposed solution you can do all that from the browser, and you can watch the video as you download it, without having to fully download it beforehand.

Miriam tu sitio aparece como muy peligroso en Google.

¿Porque no pones avisos de Google Adsense en tu pagina? Estoy poniendo avisos en los sitios de software libre, pero no hay tantos donde se pueden poner.

Comunidad de software libre aparece que esta cerrada para los negocios ….

Saludos, Walter

¿Como muy peligroso en Google? ¡Con lo buena que soy yo! :)

¿Dónde lo pone?

Personally, I consider fully downloading the video first a feature, because it means no skips and smooth seeking.



Miry says:

Ya me he enterado de lo que te referías con lo de peligroso. Creo que todo ha sido un fallo de Google.

Another tip:
Install clive and write a script for it, that it downloads the URL and opens it after in downloading in xine/mplayer/$VIDEOPLAYER.

Links to Clive and CClive projects:

In any case, as it was the case with youtube-dl, that solution wouldn’t let me start watching the video until it has been fully downloaded, am I wrong?

Thanks for the tip anyway :)

Good article.



Sir Clibe says:

Prefiero usar el siguiente script:

#!/bin/bash
mplayer $(echo “http://youtube.com/get_video.php?$(curl -s $1 | sed -n “/watch_fullscreen/s;.*\(video_id.\+\)&title.*;\1;p”)”)
