great info, txh from México City :)
I love watching Youtube videos as there's always something funny to see. But, one of the things I could not do until now was download and watch Youtube videos on my MacBook Air. Now I'm watching videos on my Macbook air and tweaking with the many options available in the software control panel. Might try converting some videos to other formats soon to see how easy that goes.
