I wrote a Web Interface for my PowerPC Media Center App specifically for old browsers. Netscape 4, Internet Explorer 5, Classilla, and TenFourFox are 100% supported. The Web Interface will download+convert YouTube videos into media formats QuickTime 6 understands/can stream. There is even an option for downloading a MPEG1 240p video for a 300MHZ G3, which I personally use on my iBook G3 Clamshell.

More information is available on the Macintosh Garden, you do not need any server knowledge at all to run this. Read through the documentation, and install it on your most powerful Mac OS X 10.4 Mac for the best performance.

Long live OS9!

Whou! That Web Interface thing is innovation!
I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.
