any way to stream youtube videos directly with mplayer ??


out of curiosity quite sometime ago , i tried streaming youtube videos directly with mplayer pass to it with a flc url without the help of a web browser ...

but after a few attempts , still cant do it and i just give up ...

i'm not really interested in internet videos/animations/flash and such , just want to see how this is going to work ... nothing much ...

any clues ?? or any other linux video application can do that ??


//thanks in advance ...

YouTube uses Flash Video. I do not believe mplayer supports that format.

should be flv instead of flc(mistake) and i remember mplayer could play this type of video file ...

the only problem i got was that i cant play it without download them onto disk first , no point keeping or having those youtube files on disk ...
