I just saw this tutorial online, and it works.

It works for many different sites that host video, even MySpace.

If only it worked on the BBC iPlayer site

Still good though, when flash hopefully comes out for the touch it will make the device what it should have been from the start!

I can't get it to work properly in my Touch. I can't get a magnifying glass to come up so I get to the start of the URL.

I got as far as running the videohamster javascript, but always got a "This portal unfortunately is not supported yet. Tell us the portals you want to work by email: LBinfo@livebsuter.com" message on the page that said my video was being converted now. Tried three different flash pages; same message every time. Three strikes, you're out!

i would really like it if this would work for sites like alluc.org and other free TV community sites..

Can someone try it out and let us know if you can watch free tv sites from the ipod touch ?
