    I downloaded a video off of YouTube through another website. However, it could only give me a .flv file. How can I view this on my Mac?

    I've already tried the standalone Flash player and opening it in my web browser, but no luck so far. Any apps out there for this?

    flv viewer and flv player (which has a more than slightly disturbing website, just check out those corporate photos ahah :D )

    Or you can transcode it to an mp4 with iSquint.

    If you find out what 'transcode' means, let me know. In the meantime, to play the mother, take my advice and use Wimpy.

    Cheers

    transcode |transˈkōd; tranz-| |ˈtrønzˌkoʊd| |ˈtrøn(t)sˌkoʊd| |tranzˌkəʊd| |trɑːnz-| |-ns-|
    verb [ trans. ]
    convert (language or information) from one form of coded representation to another.

    (Hey that's weird, when you copy right out of Mac OS X's dictonary, it displays more pronunciation roots than in the dictionary window itself [only the |transˈkōd; tranz-| showed up in dictionary].) :confused:
