  1. Introduction This is a little tutorial on how to stream and download videos from Youtube. A fairly up to date KernelEx is required (and outside of the scope of this topic) Streaming videos from Youtube in desktop media player: Get 3DYD Youtube Source 2.2.2 from https://ys.3dyd.com/download/ and LAVFilters XP 0.74.1from https://github.com/3dyd/LAVFiltersXP/releases Unpack them somewhere and register all the *.ax files (KernelEx 2K compat mode required) I found it to work OK with Media Player Classic, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema and PotPlayer 1.6.57560.0. Other players/versions might work too but some sure don't. Videos take a few seconds before they start and then you can jump fast to any time back and forward with the seek bar as you would in a browser. Issues I encountered with 3DYD Youtube Source filter: 1) source_filter.ax required the function CryptStringToBinaryW not present in CRYPT32.dll and not catered for by my kinda obsolete and only partially updated KernelEx. I just replaced that function with another one in the ax file using Jumper's import patcher tool and I could register the file as well as instantiating its Properties interface. 2) I found that 3DYD source filter wasn't creating its setting file or writing to it if it already exists ans so I couldn't change settings from defaults using its interface. The good news is that it reads modified settings from the config file which should be located at C:\WINDOWS\All Users\Application Data\3DYD Soft\3DYD Youtube Source\config.json After fiddling a bit with it in my XP laptop I found that the only thing I wanted to change was the dimension/size of the streaming video from best to something smaller and so this is the only content of my config file: { "criteria" : { "main" : "Video|480p" } } 3) I can get this to work only with Youtube vids. All my attempts to stream videos from other sites, with or without using the optional external youtube-dl and ffmpeg failed and resulted in crashes. Integrating streaming desktop media player in Opera 12: For having the media player available with right-click on links in pages, create an entry for it in the Opera menu config file under the [Link Popup Menu] section. Example: Item, Play Video = Execute program, "C:\Program Files\Media Player Classic\MPC-HC.EXE", "%l" For having the media player available with right-click in the Open with menu in pages backgrounds, create a StartMenuInternet entry for it in the Windows registry. Example: REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\MPC-HC] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\MPC-HC\shell] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\MPC-HC\shell\open] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\MPC-HC\shell\open\command] @="C:\\Program Files\\Media Player Classic\\MPC-HC.EXE" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\MPC-HC\shell\DefaultIcon] @="C:\\Program Files\\Media Player Classic\\MPC-HC.EXE" With either of these you are just two clicks away from streaming a Youtube vid in your desktop media player. Searching for Youtube videos with Opera 12: Adresses for creating search engines targeted at Youtube in Opera: Youtube mobile search: https://m.youtube.com/results?search_query=%s Google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=site:youtube.com+%s Google image search: https://www.google.com/search?q=site:youtube.com+%s&source=lnms&tbm=isch Google video search: https://www.google.com/search?q=site:youtube.com+%s&source=lnms&tbm=vid For invoking the media player on links from Google search results it's probably mandatory to have the No Google Redirect extension installed which strips google search results from redirection and gives straight links to the content as I am not sure the 3DYD Youtube Source filter follows redirections (I have not tried without). No Google Redirect extension: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=08394971836840085955 Playing Youtube videos embedded in forums, blogs, etc...: A right-click in the video area should give you an option to get a plain text link to the video page on the Youtube site. You can copy it and open it in a new tab and then invoke your media player by using the right-click Open with menu to start playback. Or, if you have the Make Links extension installed you can just select the adress and a popup menu will appear with a clickable link on which you can invoke the media player from the right-click. Make Links extension: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=06968668163345976720 Downloading videos from Youtube and many other sites with Youtube-dl from Opera 12: Get my standalone youtube-dl built for 98SE/ME with KernelEx: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=84433364913891885743 Get fellow MSFNer Corone/Reino's latest FFMpeg build for XP: https://rwijnsma.home.xs4all.nl/files/ffmpeg/?C=M;O=D and put FFMpeg and FFProbe somwhere in youtube-dl's path so it can use them. (I think they require KernelEx 2K compat mode) Integrate youtube-dl in Opera as with media player above so you can invokeit it on links and pages backgrounds and start download automatically. Youtube-dl's options can be specified in a config file located at C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\youtube-dl\config.txt. My config file content as an example: -o D:/Desktop/%(title)s.%(ext)s -f bestvideo[height<=?720]+bestaudio/best --no-mtime --continue --ignore-errors --no-overwrites That's all folks.
