Watch YouTube on your Mac

Description
Browse, watch, convert, and download YouTube videos on your Mac faster, because YouView uses the core technologies of Mac OS X to play instead of Flash allowing video to run smoother on systems with lower specs.
YouView contains great parental controls that allows parents control what their children see on YouTube via filters such as Safe search and flagged videos. By default YouView is set to moderate.
YouView allows you to choose the max size of video that is loaded such as 1080P.
When logged in with YouView you have the ability to view your special feeds such as recommendations.

I ask for donations to activate download/converting of video as it isn't an easy thing to make.

Same as John and Iggy,

Search works, but opening a video, the length indicator shows an absurd number and the application tells me that the video can't be opened and offers to display a low quality version in Perian. Perian method works.

Using OSX 10.4/Intel.
