Here's a wild idea. Maybe if the downloader program is readily seen as such, it amounts to a not-quite-tacit informal agreement with Youtube? In such a case does it become an "OK, we'll let you do this, but we may put you on a slower channel" sort of thing? Who knows? Youtube is not my thing, so I've got no clues in this corner. Perhaps the UA was randomly chosen, and maybe it doesn't matter. I don't know what their policies are at Youtube. There may not even be any restrictions, other than for their own desires for load management. Can anyone chip in on this?

I do know they don't release software on New Year's Day. That's half of the uniqueness of the UA. The other half is "(Chrome)".

I use the Firefox add-on Video DownloadHelper to download and then use mplayer (or vlc) to watch the video.

That way I don't have to leave my browser to get video; I usually use the HTML5 player (which works great on OpenBSD, btw) and only use Video DownloadHelper for those videos that don't have an HTML5 option.

As a benefit, it works in places other than YouTube.

Here is a an update of x11/smtube to 1.8. Tested on i386.

[Edited to remove patch. Someone else already posted an update to ports@ as I was working on it, which has been approved (with minor changes).]

For clarification, the smtube-1.8 diff hasn't been committed yet. So grab the diff off the mailing list for now.

Thanks for the info. Yeah - I usually use Chromium (and its built in VPx decoder). That means I can view about one in four movies and clips. Wonder why YouTube isn't converting to Webm enmasse, given that they own the platform now?

Another one of those things I can't quite factor out ....

I highly recommend /www/minitube. I have been very successfully watching HD videos on here "some", and having a amazing viewing pleasure without crashes(so far).


Update:**After playing with the setting a while. For my hardware smtube does the job. With far less hicups at 720p. minitube just couldn't handle it.**

Just for the archives, i improved the script a bit, so that it deletes video files after watching, and in case i quit playing the video before it is completely downloaded, i stop the download before deleting.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# needs zenity, youtube-dl and vlc installed

URL=$(zenity --entry --text "Enter Video URL:")
if [ "$URL" = "" ]; then
    echo "You must enter a url."
    exit
fi
TMPFILE=$(mktemp /tmp/youtube-vid.XXXXXX)
youtube-dl --no-part -f 18/0/h264-sd -o $TMPFILE "$URL" & 
DL_PID=$!
sleep 5
cvlc -f $TMPFILE vlc://quit
kill $DL_PID
rm $TMPFILE
