 +====== Watch !YouTube with Totem ======
 +I recently ran into the problem on one of my Linux installations where I could not watch !YouTube videos from Firefox. I have all the plugins, but some sort of error occurs and the video won't play. As a workaround, I found out that I could use Totem to browse and view !YouTube.
 +  * Start Totem via**Applications > Sound & Video > Movie Player**
 +  * Click on**Edit > Plugins**
 +  * Make sure you place a check in the box labeled**YouTube browser**
 +  * Click Close to save changes
 +Select !YouTube from the box located in upper right side of Totem. Type a search such as "Dane Cook" and hit the [Enter] key. Totem will search ! for your keywords. It will load results in sidebar. Simply double-click a video to watch it.
 +Before the !YouTube plugin will work with Totem, you will need to install gst-plugins-bad.
 +sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
