The Tribler Web 2.0 browser consists of dedicated Python code which uses a 250+ MByte cache and understanding of website structures of Wikipedia, Flickr.com, Youtube, Revver, etc.
This enables the access of Web 2.0 sites on platforms such as a Nokia 770, iPod video, TV Settop box, 64-bit AMD machines, and all other platforms which do not run the proprietary Flash format player or do not have a traditional PC screen with sufficient resolution. The demand for moving of video clips to non-proprietary formats is clear when searching Digg.com for articles on this topics, such as this highly popular article.

Q: How can I access the video/photo/text file? / How do I convert videos to iPod format?
A: Look up your video/photo/text in the playlist on the viewer tab and click on it with the right mouse button. The menu that is displayed contains a "Save as..." option to save the file to a location of your choice. For videos, this menu also contains a "Save as ... for iPod" option to save the video in iPod format.
