TV Eye - a way to view YouTube videos without all the clutter

When you view a video on youtube.com you get not only the video, but a bunch of suggested related videos and often times a lot of comments and other text. All this clutter gets in the way of what you want to do - simply watching the video.

So I wrote TV Eye, a simple service that embeds your desired video in a simple, plain web page, with none of the usual clutter.

To use, go to youtube.com and find the video that you want to watch. Copy the URL for the video and paste it into the form on TV Eye.

The service is really simple and the code is distributed freely under the temrs of the MIT license. You can get the code at Github at https://github.com/craic/tv_eye.
