HTML5 YouTube viewer: close, but not quite there

,----[ Quote ]
| Everyone knows Flash is a massive resource hog, 
| especially on Mac or Linux. If you're sick of 
| totally bogging down your system whenever you 
| want to watch a YouTube video, the new video 
| specifications in HTML5 might be the answer. By 
| using HTML and plugging into the Mp4 streams on 
| YouTube, the folks at NeoSmart have created an 
| HTML5 YouTube Viewer. It doesn't quite work 
| perfectly, and not every browser is ready for 
| it, but it's nice proof-of-concept to try out.



bringing theora to youtube (the hard way)

| I wrote a greasemonkey script called
| Theoratube that connects to the Firefogg
| extension. Itâs based very heavily on the
| really great Youtube without Flash Auto user
| script that lets you embed videos as a plug-
| in. But in my case I decided to use native
| Theora and HTML5 video because itâs more
| reliable, has controls and doesnât require any
| additional software to start working.
| How does it work?  It pulls down the video,
| uses Firefogg to transcode it, and then stuffs
| it back into the browser via a private URL.
| Itâs slow because it has to pull + encode the
| entire video, but it works surprisingly well
| for something that is as hacky as it is.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
