This answer will be short: VLC. Has everything you need except the rotation. It's a media player, not a video editor. To alter the playback speed in VLC: Go to to Playback → Playback Speed. You can also alter the playback speed using ⌘= and ⌘-. For rotation, as user Iwillnotexist Idonotexist notes in the comments below, you can go to Window -> Video ...

I use mplayer in its Cocoa form MplayerX like VLC it can't edit the video but just plays it. (There is a version in the Mac App Store but it is old as Apple does not now allow some of the functions the are needed (although I had no issues with it until I upgraded to Yosemite) To increase speed go to AVS->Increase Speed (or decrease) or ⌘] or ⌘[ I prefer ...

Do you use the Youtube.app at all? Because if you don't use it, you can disable it. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions. There you can disable several apps, one of them being the Youtube application. With the youtube.app disabled a youtube link in Safari will no longer redirect you to the native Youtube.app. The Youtube application icon will also no ...

Do you have two-factor authentication enabled on your Google account? If so, you may have to create an application-specific password for the YouTube login. http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=184968

Go to Settings > General > Restrictions and untick the Youtube button. After that Youtube links will open in Safari and the app icon will disappear from the home screen.

For apps that don't support two-factor authentication, such as iMovie, you need to generate an application-specific password. This is a computer generated password that can be used to give an app access to Google services, but is intended for use in a single app. Go here to manage your connected apps and application-specific passwords. Once you generate one ...

I use Movist. It's a native video player that used to be free but is now sold at the App Store. Old versions can still be downloaded for free, but they use an old version of ffmpeg that doesn't even support Hi10P, and the application has changed a lot since then. Both Movist and MPlayerX have nicer UIs than VLC in my opinion, and they are also faster at ...

If you are updating from devices directly, you can only pull the most recent version of the app. In a slight change from the past, if the most recent version is not compatible with your device, it will now offer to let you download the most recent compatible version instead. If you use iTunes on a Mac to download copies of your apps into your library, or ...

There are a few extensions that will add a nice download button to the Youtube video page, and give you the option to download in various resolutions. Youtube Video Downloader Fastesttube YouTubeDownloader You can also try ClickToPlugin, which does a lot more than just offer a download link, but it does that, and it's one of my favourite extensions. ...

Yes, most YouTube videos are also available as HTML5 videos. You need to sign in to YouTube and join the HTML5 trial -- see http://www.youtube.com/html5 for details.

There should be a preference thing on YouTube to select HTML5, but they've reorganized the page so many times since I last tracked it down that I have no idea where it is now. Instead, I have ClickToFlash installed (it's under "Most Popular" in the Safari Extensions Gallery); open its preferences (Safari Preferences... > Extensions) and you can tell it to ...

There is a syndication setting that you choose when you upload a video to youtube in the video settings page under Broadcasting and Sharing Options that allows it to be played on mobile devices or not.

There is no way you could do that, I have that problem also. You could try to send YouTube a feature request, but I won't think they will do that as Google now owns YouTube and Google and Apple aren't exactly the best friends... But you coud try :)

With business class cable (10 to 30 Mb/s), even HD videos are basically instant on and play through completely. It's more a matter of selecting a smaller stream size by picking your web site or setting a preference if you can't getting a wider pipe to the internet. Latency isn't a big issue with streaming video - lots and lots of bandwidth is the major ...

You don't specify what web browser you use, but if you use FireFox a simple plugin like Easy You Tube Video Downloader may be just what you are looking for. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easy-youtube-video-downl-10137/ For Chrome you can use the following: ...

The fullscreen YouTube uses of its website, is not a "real fullscreen" feature. It just maximize the size of the video to the size of the webcontent. So unlike Vimeo (for example) you won't get a real fullscreen without YouTube updating it's webplayer (or you using the YouTube app) .

The Swift Player app should be able to accomplish what you need, but it is $3.99, so that might not be an option.

You need to remove Youtube's HTML5 trial in order for the flash player to work and remember your preferences. First join the trial, and then leave it. Leaving the trial is the only way to force YouTube to remember you want the videos played in Flash, but of course to do that you have to join the trial first. It fixed the issue for me. Here's the link: ...

No, even though you're only listening to the audio, the video will continue to be streamed to the device.

No, mobile versions often have much less functionality. With the official YouTube app there is (currently) no function to speed up a video. There might be an external app containing this feature, but by default there is no functionality for this.

You can use brew upgrade to update all packages, or brew upgrade youtube-dl to update only youtube-dl.

As the link you posted has several Pre-event streams scheduled, you can try things out before hand. I haven't seen a public announcement by either Google or Apple saying to tune in on your Apple TV, so you might plan on a second manner of streaming. I'll likely use AirPlay mirroring to get the content onto my large screen via Apple TV.

I don't think it's much faster. I use youtube-dl from MacPorts or Homebrew. > youtube-dl -g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkmyLTPh3UY ...

Install the ClickToFlash extension in Safari. With the extension enabled you can right-click on any video in YouTube and choose "Download File", which downloads the underlying MP4 file. The plugin also has the side benefit of blocking Flash content by default, but if you don't want this functionality this plugin might not be for you.

I personally use Chrome, and there is a great (unofficial) extension, which allows you to set both the default size/resolution to use for downloads, but also gives you a choice for a different resolution for each video you visit. Extremely handy. I also use the YouTube Options Chrome extension to disable the initial buffering (so videos don't buffer until ...

Yes! You only need to enter from safari and not from the app. You choose the song you want to listen to, press the home button, swipe up to multitask and press play!
