Hi Pooky

Have you tried a browser extension for you tube ? I don't know what browser you're using but I have one for Chromium and it works perfectly


What browser are you using ?

Latest version for 12.04 64bit here:

If you're on later than 12.04 .. or are on 32bit, let me know.

I've installed VST but it keeps saying theres a newer version available but after checking, it's not for my version of Kubuntu but the newer versions.

And... When I tried to download the videos I wanted from Youtube... It came up with errors... I then try the website myself... Only to find out that the videos are now UNAVAILABLE in the UK  >:(

I already said that was the latest version for 12.04

and if the video isn't available in the UK, you need to look into using a proxy .. so you appear to be connecting from the US.

Sorry, the usual me wanting the latest version and seeing info that says the latest version is higher - But they usually make higher versions for newer versions of Ubuntu...

And re the video's, just downloaded them as a torrent  ;)
