To do that you can use Firefox's downloadhelper add on and the latest version of VLC media player
Ummmm,I knew I didn't relly think it thru and forgot something,yeah I guess I'll be viewing the entire Youtube page,not a big problem to me 'cause I like to view the comments sometimes during the video,now that I think about it.
Viewing video on a pretty big screen and the improved sound would be cool to me.I like to watch a lot of amateur musician videos and covers.
At some point I would like to do a build for a media server.Could I do something like have a laptop ( I have several that are OK,but kind of obsolete) hardwired to the TV and have it wirelessly networked to the media computer or networked to another laptop? (I also have a couple of cable modems and d-link units kicking around.)
