I can download files, however, I can't play them. What media player recognizes these file extensions?

Most any media player can play .mp4 files. VLC player from videolan.org will play almost any movie file, including .flv as long as you have the necessary codecs installed.

Grooveselect works for me. Didn't work at first and then I realized that Noscript was blocking it. Once I allowed it I had to highlight the song again and click the bookmarklet.

It's a shame too. After reading the article, the one I was most excited about was Grooveselect and the bookmarklet doesn't even work.

Did you guys test this stuff before writing the article?

 At least I found out about the website Grooveshark.com - very cool site.

Hello to all my fellow brethren: The Bookmarklet - GrooveSelect; Does anyone know how to query the server without having to find the song you want to listen on a page?.  So, I'm looking for a way to manually enter a song and artist, then I can highlight the sound and then hit the GrooveSelect BookMarklet. Search boxes do not seem to do the job? Thanks for any and all replies.

GMapToGPX bookmarklet will create a GPX file from a Google Maps route so you can upload it to your GPS. Very primo.

I dragged the grooveselect bookmarklet into my firefox bookmark toolbar, highlight a song text I want to hear (use sombody - Kings of Leon), and then click the grooveselect bookmarket.  Nothing happens.

 

any ideas?  fully updated FF

Perfect for when you are surfing around and want to tell someone (or yoursef) about a page you just found.

No need to bring up full on Gmail, just po up a small Gmail This window.

I learned of it here   http://lifehacker.com/190122/gmail-this-bookmarklet

You don't mention the link in the article, and there is no official bookmarklet on LMGTFY website. Double FAIL!

LetMeGoogleThatForYou <--- That's the bookmarklet right there, just select text and press it. It's not very useful though, because it just searches the highlighted text on LMGTFY and doesn't give a link. I think it's just better to go to the site and make your own URL.

I love the PwnYouTube bookmarklet!  However the article linked to the main page rather than the bookmarklet.   This is the direct link to get the bookmarklet for downloading videos from YouTube

http://deturl.com/bookmarklet-to-directly-download-videos-from-youtube.asp

By the way, it also works on  DailyMotion and Facebook.

GrooveSelect is AWESOME :D It even found these semi-rare German rock (not Rammstein :P).

Try these (if you like hard rock then you'll probably like these :D)

1. Oomph! - Du Spielst Gott

2. Oomph! - Beim Ersten Mal Tut's Immer Weh

3. Oomph! - Ego

4. Oomph! - Träumst Du

And no, they don't sing about the devil, Hitler, or nazism like everyone stereotypes -.-

Is it me or some of these do not work with chrome, for example vozme and switter.

The password one seems a little useless, if you were really that bad with typing your passwords then you could just type them into the search bar, or address bar, then copy and paste it into the password box.

Nice list. I stumbled across http://www.marklets.com
the other day. I think it's probably the biggest list of bookmarklets I've ever
seen. I found the marklets.com bookmarklet (mentioned in the article) http://www.marklets.com/bookmarklets/Marklets.com.aspx the most useful. It lets you just search their database right from the
sites you're currently visiting. Pretty cool trick and you don't need
to bookmark a huge list of bookmarklets.
