Watch YouTube and Google Video without converting..

 […
First you have to install MPlayer for 770. Check out Maemo applications. MPlayer can play FLV files.

Now you need to be able to easily download the flv file from the page. Go to this site: http://1024k.de/bookmarklets/video-bookmarklets.html. That’s a great collection of Javascript codes that will help you download the videos. Just bookmark them by clicking and holding over each link. Use the “Flash Video files (.flv)” as this will download directly from the website you will be looking at (ie YouTube or Google Video).

That’s it. Now go to Youtube, choose a video and when the page finishes loading just click the bookmarked link and you will be asked to save a .flv file.

You can also open the file directly with MPlayer if you associate .flv with it. Follow these instructions: http://www.internettablettalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=19205&postcount=84.

But if you must…here´s how to backup your installation

[…I backup my repository list by opening up an xterm, gaining root and copying everything in /etc/apt/ to a directory on the mmc card and then copying the sources.list file back after reimaging the device.

To copy it back after reimaging, you will need to reinstall becomeroot (or become root via some other means) and then install an xterm. I keep the .debs for most of the common programs I use in a directory on my mmc card, but it is nice to have the repositories in place for updates….]

Waterproof your device…

This guy wanted a waterproof carry-around box for his device and a GPS-mouse and found it here.

Convert videos online …

I will try http://www.bleb.org/services/vidconvert

to convert videos online to see if it can work as interim replacement for MediaConverter, since it won´t start on my machine.Great feature: It excepts an URL (i.e. a YouTube or Google Video page), or a direct link to a video file. Maximum filesize is 50 MB. It looks promising.

And here is a first Youtube-video rendered for the 770. By the way, WordPress.com-people, why do you consider *.avi files harmful? Maybe just to your bandwidth-bill…

Streaming Audio and Images

With the Media Streamer UPnP AV control point application by Nokia the 770 evolves into a device suitable to interact with a PC-based streaming server.  I was not able to get the semi-commercial streaming server application running that Nokia is promoting , but I am successfully using Twonkymedia´s server and the Philips Media Manager . Installation under XP went easy. I had to enter some ports into the internal Windows firewall and enabled the applications in the firewall. After that the folders containing the media need indexing. An upcoming version of Media Streamer will be video enabled, according to an email Visa Smolander of Nokia wrote to a member of the Internettablettalk Forum.
