So, if you’re getting a little tired of Flash and it’s silly security hiccups, but still can’t live without the YouTubey goodness that is the awesome sauce of life, here’s a simple solution I stumbled onto: use mplayer to watch the videos!
I haven’t found a way to embed this in my browser yet, but I haven’t really looked either, so this is for all the CLI geeks.
$ mplayer $(youtube-dl -b -g http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IfEInQ7aic)
And thar ya go. 🙂
Oh, and did you know that Flash Gordon is on Blu-Ray now? Flash! Aaaaaa-ah!
