It would be a good hack, if it carried more than a handful of the most popular videos. Sadly, the pickings are very slim. At least for now.

Nice. Unexpected, but nice.

it's the iphone driving this conversion, right? i believe all videos are to be available this way within a couple months.

Thanks for noticing, Jamlet, and for your comments, rik, csven, and qarl (I'll be lowercase too!). :)

And I was chatting with Callum, looks like Apple wants to gear up bigtime with YouTube for the Apple TV, so hopefully we get more quality H.264-encoded content. I wonder if existing videos will be retroactively encoded, tho... I reckon (1) YouTube has the originally-uploaded files stored on its servers and (2) seems like it'd take a long time, even with mega server power.
