Eh, I watch youtube, but NOT using flash servantware, and using 100% 64-
bit apps.  The firefox extension I use is 1-click-youtube-downloader, but 
there are others, and other ways to watch it (including in HTML5 native 
format), if desired, without using servantware.

I always download the mp4 version, watching it using my video player of 
choice (presently smplayer).  I can then delete it if I don't like it, or 
save it if I do.  Sometimes videos disappear from youtube, you know, and 
google doesn't need to know how many times I watch my favorites, or even 
whether I consider it good enough to save or not.

IOW, particularly insecure and buggy servantware not required to view 
youtube. =:^)
