If you are getting tired of buffering when streaming 1080P video on YouTube, you can download it to your hard drive with YouTube HD Downloaders below. Then you can playback the file using XBMC...you'll never have to put up with buffering again!

Also I use http://www.clipconverter.cc and it's universal as you don't have to install anything, all in browser!

Set Up
Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc - XBMC 12.2
40" Samsung ES6800 LED Smart 3D 1080P TV

I prefer this one, again all in browser:

Of course the XBMC YouTube plugin can download videos to disk can't it?

Any idea if there is a way to get XBMC to download trailers in this fashion when scraping instead of just storing a link to the trailer so that you don't have to deal with buffering when viewing trailers?

XBMCbuntu {Frodo} - Ubuntu 12.04 (Main):
Intel Q6600 [2.4GHz Quad Core], 4GB DDR3, nVidia GT-210, Antec Fusion Case (iMon LCD), PS3 BD Remote

XBMC Live {Frodo} - Ubuntu 10.04 (Bedroom): Intel Atom D510 [1.66GHz Dual Core], ION Graphics, 2GB DDR2, PS3 BD Remote
