OSX: TubeSock – Rip videos from YouTube
Posted by cascadehush on January 16, 2007
TubeSock costs $15
Witness the spectacle. On the one side a dodgy website full of copyright violations and naff home-movies. On the other side, a video player with limited codec support, even more limited screen space and yet more limited battery life.
I must say it seems like an ideal match. If I’m going to watch crummy, low quality video I may as well do it on a low-quality-video player. If it was free, I’d probably give it a try. $15 is not unreasonable, but I just don’t care enough to pay for the privilege.
If you do care enough to pay, I suggest you take advantage of the opportunity before Google sues stinkbot out of existence, or else just changes their website API to make the software unworkable.
(And before Apple sues me out of existence, make note that I am not calling the iPod low quality, just the video codecs that it plays.)
