I know everybody here is mostly interested in Classic OS, but this might still be of interest to Tiger/Leopard users.

Wow that is impressive. Once VLC gave up on the PPC I didn't think we'd ever see the day where this would happen.

the main thing it does is to install perian .. if you do that, you can also play all these funny formats with QT player. ive never encountered most oif theem, but it is great for playing flash.

You can find a number of them here: http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/supportedsites.html  Changes from week to week, but is a good general list.  Also a number of sites work that are not listed through the generic loader.

**Note some of these in the list only work in Intel - requiring rtmpdump.

Also, you should try Comedy Central.  The Multi-Segmented playback (instructions in Read Me) is pretty good.

oh, german television, that is very good, since most of them require flash 12 when accessing via web.
not that it would be so difficult to find out the links, but ready algorithms are more comfy of course.
