Watch YouTube videos with QuickTime embedded player

Seemed to work OK, (Firefox 3 beta) but how is this easier than just clicking the "Watch in High Quality" link (in the Views/ratings box beneath the control bar) for those video's where HQ is available?

It's not any easier; however, it does play the video via Quicktime as opposed to Flash-a big deal to Intel Mac owners, who (like me) I'm sure are tired of watching their processor use spike every time they try to watch a YouTube vid.

Ahhh I see what you mean... Flash HQ stayed constant at ~ 33% CPU usage. (Low Q Flash was ~28%) QT was 18-33% variable while buffering, then dropped to a steady 11% while playing the whole rest of the movie. Maybe just my eyes but it looked to be a bit sharper picture too! Nice catch!
