Well I don’t mean the actual youtube page just a web site with clips from youtube put into the format to run on Dreamcast. I know youtube running on Dreamcast is practily impossible. It would be cool to play web/flash like from newgrounds, miniclip, funbrain.
The page itself is irrelevant -- there's not enough CPU horsepower to decode the videos.


Not even short clips? Does it matter the year the video is from?

The length of the video has nothing to do with it, nor does when the video was made. They're all either VP8 or H.264, neither of which the Dreamcast is going to be able to decode in real-time.

convert videos to sfd files is what I mean, when I say youtube videos I mean just random video clips not exactly videos from youtube. Sorry for the confusing, like there's video clips of Dreamcast commercials on dreampipe. What if we can just have a website for the Dreamcast were it was full of video clips. That's the point I'm trying to get across

Awesome. Making a new DC browser is unfeasible, so let's make it easier by also developing our own YouTube clone.

I'd say our XDP suite of browers is the "new" browser for DC. Anyways, besides uploading high scores, uploading/downloading content for games, and perhaps posting on the forum, what else are you wanting to do with your Dreamcast online?
