hello

how can I use youtube with vl 7.0l?

netsurf doesnt support it and midori crashes for me

i installed minitube which doesnt work either

it is an old system with barely more than 300mb ram on it.

Try "smtube" and see how it does. You need to enable the testing repository.

On a low end system, the video card becomes crucial for this purpose. Unless you have hardware acceleration, it's not going to work well.

Another alternative in low spec situations is browser extensions/add-ons to download tube vids and watch in media player.
