    The developer of Youtube5 announced on August 22 that it will no longer be developed, one of the reasons was that Youtube provides html5 for all of its videos thus Youtube5 is no longer necessary.

    I was using it because I don't have Flash and because it blocked ads on Youtube. It currently still works but without updates I'm not certain when it will die, it is open source but if nobody decides to update it what are the alternatives?

    Currently the only 2 plugins I use are clicktoplugin and Youtube5.

    Anything else as YouTubeCenter might still work but it is not being actively developed, any other options and any methods to download a Youtube video to your Ipod for home viewing only?
