Cathodique... Search and watch videos from YouTube on your Mac in a standalone player.

Just type in a few words into a search box and press Return to quickly receive search results in an uncluttered sidebar as thumbnails (with clip title, rating, and duration), and double-click the video you want to watch.

Cathodique is based on QuickTime framework, so it uses less CPU power than Flash. It also allows you to view videos in full screen mode (with translucent, floating controls).

What's New

Sort options would be nice. Having a 2 year old videos in the top results is not very useful.

Great little app purchased through MuPromo. It'd be nice if I could somehow integrate it with Videobox though..

Great little app. So simple, so elegant. Just do one thing but do it good.
Downloading videos would be welcome addition.

Or you could use Miro for free. Seems it'll do all the things you want, including downloading, saving and managing your videos. And it's not just limited to YouTube videos either.

There's also a free Miro Video Converter here: http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/
Can't speak too highly of Miro and the price is brilliant.

This is cool, worked well in my testing. Way faster than searching you tube, and no ads/text/comments = much cleaner experience.

The only thing missing is an easy way to save and manage videos. Add that feature and I think $14 fair.

You could pay fourteen dollars, or you could install ClickToFlash or turn on the YouTube HTML5 beta. Let me think about this...

ClickToFlash is very good, I use it myself, and recommend it to everyone. However, it is not a standalone player.
