yep, tried that too with ffmpeg, but it took ages. fortunately youtube provides videos as mp4 which play fine on wdtv without conversion. nice work elm i would like to see also modded thumb mode with 320 x 240 thumbs which are provided by youtube.
Yes, youtube provides mp4 files too. But other providers (dailymotion) doesn't.
In my case, I watch some online documentary only available in Dailymoiton, in flv format.
Elm, for keyboard layout, is it possible to use QWERTY (english), AZERTY (french)... using WDTV locale ?
For example (don't know your files names), something like youtube_searc.xml including youtube_keyboard.xml
And, youtube_keyboard corresponding to youtube_keyboard_fr.xml or youtube_keyboard_en.xml...
