I even removed the extension from firefox with no luck. Now what? Gary Cali Lewis April 23, 2012 Hmm… that’s odd. What’s in the place of the video? White space? Gary April 24, 2012 Yes that’s correct only white space. When you click on a video it refuses to run. Sorry for the problems. Guess I just use Safari no problem. Gary Jeremy April 19, 2012 For OS X I use Evom Rob April 18, 2012 Definitely against YouTube TOS. This shouldn’t be advertised as a tip. Lucy April 17, 2012 Isn’t this against the YouTube TOS? I mean, not that that stops anybody Paul O'Rear April 17, 2012 Love the Mickey Mouse shirt! Did you have to pay royalties to Disney? :o) Oh, and great tip! I’ve been using RealPlayer’s feature that pops up a “Download this video” button whenever I watch a YouTube video. Didn’t know about the “saveyoutube” site. Sounds pretty cool!
