I do this the same way.  For some reason, the videos are dark when 
played through youtube or any other site for that matter.  I can 
download them and open them in smplayer and they are bright and look 
fine.  This happens in Firefox and Seamonkey.  I never have been able to 
figure why they are to dark tho.
