Howto get the RTSP streaming URL of a YouTube Video

THIS SOLUTION DOES NO LONGER WORK!

You can get low quality streaming URLs of a YouTube video by parsing:

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/mobile/videos/VIDEO_ID

e.g.:

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api//videos/fdJc1_IBKJA (XML)

One or more tags named “<media:content” with the attribute “type=’video/3gpp'” will contain an URL for a RTSP stream of the video.

For the above video that would be rtsp://r2—sn-4g57kuek.c.youtube.com/CiILENy73wIaGQmQKAHy11zSfRMYESARFEgGUgZ2aWRlb3MM/0/0/0/video.3gp
