Frustration-Free Packaging #2 – Yes we can

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

I gave the Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging a 2nd try when I ordered a memory card. When it arrived I thought: yes, this is frustration-free packaging – ok the ratio between packaging and article resembles the last Amazon package, but this time the latter is minimized.

Most of the sending is waste – ok, at least its only paper and no plastic. But the overall packaging to send these two cables is big enough to carry one big or two small notebooks.

Then when watching a YouTube video that you want to cache locally just click the Youtubian bookmark and enjoy the new view to YouTube. Youtubian offers a very comfortable way to download the video in various formats, sizes and levels of quality.

Lets see when we have to change again …

YouTube again changed the way you can easily download your favourite videos to watch them offline. I already posted twice how to do it – you just need to create a Bookmark in your browser and click on it when watching the video that you want to download. Quite simple. But the target of this bookmark changed again. Here is current version:

In February I wrote a post and offered a JavaScript code snippet that helps you to easily download a YouTube Video by adding this code to your bookmark list. The API of YouTube changed a few days ago, so the script no longer works.

Here is the new updated code snippet. Please update your bookmark or just right-click on the following link and choose “Bookmark this Link”:
