A link to a video should end in ".mpg", ".mpeg", ".avi" or even – ".mov".

If I understand it correctly, Google and YouTube take videos and then convert them into their custom format, forcing persons who want to view them to enable JavaScript, Flash or even install a custom player. This is regrettable. I wish people would not support this by linking to such sites.

Google allows you to download their videos as .avi. I do this with every longer video.

Thank you, Ludwik! I am not yet aware how to download the video, but I'll try to find it.

There are about 13 videos of this guy as of now.
his name is "Menashe Noy" and he is a very well known and tallented israeli actor (hence the middle eastern accent, though the character papadizi claims to be from greece).
a search for papadizi in youtube will give you all of the webisodes of this little show. an interview with the director published in israel's biggest news site revealed that the main idea of these films is to market something or other by re-mailing the people who send mail to papadizi with 1 of a 100 databased answers. in hopes to sell this product to marketing companies to promote which ever products are more appropriate to the sender's mail.
it's an odd idea which i didn't really get. but whatever, i love that actor...
the rest of the shorts are pretty funny as well...

Enrico, Israel.
