Hey guys I got my PowerBook G4 and I downloaded YouView for YouTube videos but when I try to play a YouTube video It says It cant load the video and to try loading the video in a low version. When I press OK it says it cannot find the video. Is there any settings I need to adjust or am I using an outdated version? If I am can you please link me to the correct download? Thanks!

YouView and other Youtube clients no longer work as YouTube updated their API. This renders 3rd party apps useless, along with the old Youtube app for iOS. A good fix for this is to download TenFourFox, along with the QuickTimeEnabler extension and with Perian. Once you have this all downloaded, right click on a Youtube video in TFF, and click play in quicktime.

Napoli, city of sun and pizza!
It still doesn't work even after I restart my Mac :(

iceman... quicktime enabler is not a good way anymore... The best ways to watch youtube videos are two:
1) download clicktoplugin for safari and it will allow you to play the video in safari with the html5 player very smoothly
2) download PPC media center, when you copy a youtube or dailymotion url it allows you to watch videos in quicktime, and even to download them...
