This was the model that everyone was talking about. Should you buy the Pismo, or the SE 466 MHz Clamshell iBook? That was ‘the’ question during the time. While some knew that the Pismo simply had more to offer (i.e. 14.1″ 1024 x 768 screen), others were not as convinced.

Youtube Videos = Clamshell+MacTubes+VLC




You are not able to use the Youtube platform on your Clamshell iBook any more? The Freeware Program MacTubes (min. MacOSX 10.4.2) searches the Youtube platform and displays a list of videos that match your keywords. Permform a download and play the MP4 video files using the VLC Player.

 





Perform a right click on an interesting video in the list (CTRL+Trackpadclick on your iBook) and download ist as MP4 (not FLV or HD). For a playback, use VLC Player 0.8.6i for PowerPC. Any Firewire-Clamshell iBook (with 8MB Video-RAM) will do the job.

MacTubes requires a G4 processor only for the internal playback of the listed videos. The G3 processor is way to slow to perform this playback.
