another method (without all the copying, pasting and remembering)
Authored by: stevebr on Jun 19, '09 08:17:28AM
When browsing YouTube recently, I've noticed an arrow-icon widget at the top-right of videos. This maximizes the video in a new window. When doing so, the url of the window is:
http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=[whatever]&[other parameters]

And normally, the url is:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[whatever]&[other parameters]

So, just replace the string "watch" with "watch_popup" in the URL.

Maybe somebody nice around here will whip us up a bookmarklet?

Sorry for replying to myself, but I forgot to mention you can just click the arrow icon. D'oh!

Very well done, Lee. Mind if I place this in my blog post? I'm going to go ahead and stick it in. You can view it here.
