YouTube videos are in non-free file formats and you need Adobe Flash
Player (non-free software) to enjoy the service. If you care about
freedom, don't use YouTube.

To see YouTube videos in Totem you will have to install free software
whose only purpose is to handle non-free file formats. I'd suggest not
to do that.

Soon we will have the opportunity to enjoy video on the Web using free
technology only; and it will happen faster if we support that
