Youtube-mode facilitates downloading and running external programs on the embedded videos from youtube. Conkeror has a built-in "media" browser object class that is selected by the "e" prefix key. This browser object class uses a "media scraper", which by default just looks for URLs matching certain patterns in the webpage HTML source code, in order to prepare a list of embedded media files from which the user can choose using the completion mechanism. Youtube-mode overrides the default media scraper with a more sophisticated one that works correctly on those sites. Furthermore, it sets the media browser object class to be the default browser object class for the save, shell-command, and shell-command-url commands. As a result, for example, the save command invoked without a prefix while one of these page modes is enabled will automatically choose the embedded flash video file as the target to download.
YouTube Player mode
youtube-player-mode allows you to control the html5 video player. Right now it supports playing, pausing, (un)muting, switching to fullscreen mode and altering playback speed. It should load automatically by default. Make sure you've enabled html5 by visiting http://youtube.com/html5.
The following keystrokes should work:
- play/pause: C-c RET
- (un)mute: C-c C-m
- toggle fullscreen: C-c C-f
- decrease playback speed: C-c C-[
- increase playback speed: C-c C-]
