 Without the use of Gnash or some method to extract the .flv file from
the site (like or ytplay) it's not possible to view
YouTube using Free Software alone. Some distros include the non-free
Flash plugin by default but Ubuntu, gNewSense and Debian do not.

ytplay is a great script (especially now that it works again) but
another option is which works with more than just YouTube.
This can be useful for WIndows and Mac users as well who are
interested in saving local copies of video to their drives. :)
