Just a quick reminder for anyone who hasn't tried it yet, the latest Roccat - relinked to LWK - has fantastic performance for HTML5 Youtube. On my 1.67Mhz Powerbook it uses 30% less CPU than TFF, no pause for buffering needed either.
I still use plugins etc as my preferred Youtube method but Roccat will be great for those who just want quick and easy playback.

Just curious what is the best way to relink to leopard webkit? Never done it before. :D

Download the compressed file (it's on github I believe), make a copy of the app you wish to relink and place it on your desktop. Open the DMG file for LWK. Take the app you just placed on your desktop and drop it on the relink script file inside the DMG.

Let it process and it will spit out an app with a different name with LWK on the end of it. Rename the first part back to the actual app name (leaving LWK on the end) and then delete the app you copied to the desktop. You can then put the LWK version in your Applications folder.

This keeps a copy of your old app while giving you a new one that's been relinked to LWK.

Thanks so much eyoungren. I'll have a go at it when I can. :)

You shouldn't even have to make a copy. Should be able to just drag/drop on top of the script to generate a new copy linked against LWK. Unless there's something that happened that I'm not privy to.

When you do that, it renames the original app to a generic app name and the new LWK to that same generic app name with LWK at the end.

Then you have to go back and rename TWO apps back to the original names.
