    this is the only time ajax ........es me off?

    I just browsing youtube video playlists when I suddenly realize they are using ajax feature.The problem for me is now I can't jump through the playlist by manipulating the url.
    The stupid pagination only have this format -> 1 2 3 4 5 next
    I am wondering if you encounter the same problem and if there's any way around it?

    This user got > 1600 videos ,how do the hell I jump to 100th video or 500th video,I'm not going to click next till I reach there.Man,this is so frusfrating

    1. If you aren't already using Firefox, go download Firefox and install.
      .
    2. Install the addon Firebug (if not already installed)
      .
    3. Browse to the Youtube user's channel
      .
    4. Enable the Firebug console (or just enable the console for youtube.com)
      .
    5. You can now execute javascript on-the-fly. Try typing this into the Firebug console:
      Code:
      get_page('user_videos-137631468', 500, 20, 'True', 'p');
      (137631468 is the youtube user-id for the user whose channel you are viewing)

      This will show 20 videos in the box starting at the 500th video. Unfortunately, it appears that changing the 20 to a different number has no effect on the number of items that appear in the box.

    This might not be the best way to go about this, but it certainly beats clicking next 80 times.

    Oh really?

    How about writing this to the address bar:
    Code:
    javascript:void(get_page('user_videos-137631468', 500, 20, 'True', 'p'))
    Wouldn't it be easier?

    And then save this URL as a bookmark. Voila, bookmarklet. You can even place a prompt() call where the page number is, so that it asks you for the page number.
    All the buzzt!
