Thank you vinceASPECT. Now we have 2 sites that works with Dillo.

https://toogl.es and https://www.genyt.net doesn't work with Dillo.
This is cool that you can watch yt 3gp videos even on Pentium 200 mhz and 128 MB RAM without HDD. Thanks to TC and mplayer.

invidio.us .........also works on "Links browser" and maybe elinks too.  You can.....

search any video topic,
then click on a particular video
then click on the download file type and select one
then cilck download
and then select to DISPLAY the download
then from the resulting page........... select from the Links menu "copy current URL"

Then you can open that video URL in some player... (mplayer etc)

you can do that for the smallest Video and Sound qualities..........and open them in a DUAL URL input player
such as MPC 

MPC can open two URL's in tandem......one for video and one for sound (synced up)

i believe Mplayer can also open multiple URLS in synced tandem.


As for invidio.us on a somewhat regular web browser..........you go into invidio.us preferences and select


Then when you choose to watch a video you can choose the 144p quality........i believe you are then getting the smallest possible video file and also the smallest possible Audio file together.  (in the browser player)

THis is UNLIKE the youtube web page....... where when you select 144 it's actually giving you the second smallest 144p file and quite a large audio file with it.

You can check by seeing the FEED ID's in "stats for nerds" on youtube.com for some movie............. and comparing it to the available feeds list from youtube-dl  (for that same movie file)

Yes. With regard to that website  invidio.us

it may even play the videos directly in TCL Opera 9 browser. 

Or at least, you may be able to "right click" the video window  and select "play" or "copy link" and then open it in mplayer.

You can certainly copy the video's download links (offered) and stream them in some media player.

I usually choose the lowest file size.  144p mp4.....and the lowest sized audio..........
 audio/webm 56k or 64k.

If you so desire you can just click the "speaker icon" that is below the video and then it will just play the audio of the movie.  Useful.
