    Talking Playing Yahoo Music Videos
    I couldn't get Launch (Yahoo's Music Video site) to work. Flip4Mac didn't fix it. A little searching and I found a program which not only works but gets around those annoying commercials.

    It's called LyFOX and it can be found at this site: http://fernyb.2ya.com/

    You have to go to the PROJECTS page (see top of page for link). It's the third program down. It's a simple interface. Type in an artist, it will return a list of any videos on the Launch site, select the video and run it. In this case, Flip4Mac runs the video without a problem sans commercials.

    Nice find, you don't even have to be on the site to watch the videos.
    Launch works in FF if you have grease monkey, this is way better. Thank you
