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
