Have Internet ADD? Use YouPlayer to Watch Videos in Sidebar

I have this thing where I can't always watch videos on the Internet when they come my way — and not because I'm not allowed to at work, but because I don't feel like I can take the time to focus on just one video. Turns out "my thing" isn't so weird, because some kind soul made YouPlayer, a Firefox extension that lets you watch videos in your sidebar!

Once installed, all you have to do is drag and drop the URL or your search results for the video into the player.

With YouPlayer, not only can you multitask — i.e., checking email while a funny vid plays — you can also keep them in your sidebar to return to later, so you don't have to bookmark them or remember the site or YouTube search term when you get around to showing your friends later!

For some reason I have a hard time ever watching videos. I feel like I'm missing out on a ton of cool stuff because I tend to just not watch them. I put it off, then just close the tab after awhile. Maybe this extension would help, I will definitely try it out.

I need this! I know I'm part of the ADD generation when I start to load a video, see that it's longer than two minutes, and reconsider if I want to spend the time.
