YouTube from YAM under OS4

This DOS script can be used with YAM.
If in a mail an URL is given , a double click will either open the URL in muiOWB or if it points to a YouTube video, will play it.
I installed it in sys:utilities getvideo drawer. You may have to edit for your system.
.KEY url/A
;called from YAM "on clicking URL"  sys:Utilities/getVideo/PlayYTube %p

set metube 
`cut  "<url>" char -28`
cd sys:Utilities/getVideo
IF  $metube EQ "http://www.youtube.com/watch"
Requestchoice video  "<url>" ok
.rexx "<url>" play
cd datas:muiowb  datas:muiowb/owblauncher does nothing 
    waitforport OWB.1 timeout 0
returns 0 if found if not
        RUN owblauncher 
        waitforport OWB.1 timeout 10
echo "waited not long enough or OWBlauncher problem"
wait 3 the rexx command  below will not work without it
"address OWB.1 'OPEN  NAME ""<url>"" '"
RX "address OWB.1 'OPEN  NAME ""<url>"" '"
cd sys:Utilities/getVideo

If you solved this in other way would be interested in knowing how

Appears noone has a better solution

Myself I rarely get youtube links in e-mails, but sometimes over chat, like IRC or MSN. It can probably be connected to those too.

An alternative would be to copy the URL into the clipboard (I assume YAM can do that!), and then use ClipDown to view the video.

I already have ClipDown run when OWB is run (thanks to a little script), and it wouldn't be any harder to do that with YAM, SimpleMail, etc. (But same as Deniil, I rarely get YouTube links in email, so I haven't bothered.)
