    I have found an application called x254Encoder, this version is supposed to give x264 support to Quicktime 6, it is GPL open source, so I am attaching it here, it may increase Youtube/video performance on G4/G5 PPC's, I don't know for sure as my PowerBook was damaged(ruined) so I cannot test it and I don't know if it will actually work.

    I'm pretty sure Perian does this. I've had to install it on a few of my PPCs to use with TenFourFox QuickTime Enabler.

    This is for Intel only :(
    As redheeler says, Perian has x264 playback covered. For encoding in x264 there's Handbrake & ffmpegX.

    Oh well, too bad it's Craptel only, looks like I will have to download Perian, oh and is Perian any faster than tenfourfox/other browsers?

    Yes, playing YouTube videos in Quicktime with Perian installed is faster than in the browser.

    It's a good idea to have Perian installed as a matter of course as a base package of codecs.
    In Safari using Clicktoplugin, all flash content is handled separately via Quicktime/Perian. On Youtube for example you have the following options:

    Play flash as normal.
    Open In Quicktime.
    Play/download 360p MP4
    Play/download 720p MP4
    Play/download 240p FLV

    Great flexibility and more efficient than leaving it to the browser.
