Comments, Links

You can search for videos with the normal Youtube search box. But if you try to sort by date, the Great Firewall (GFW) will reset your connection and block you from Youtube for a minute or two. You can slip past the GFW by editing the URL: copy the URL for sorting by "Date Added", remove the part that says search_type=search_videos (and the ampersand after it), and you can access the sorted search results. Removing that bit doesn't seem to affect the search results.

Oh, and one ignored "Contact Us" message later I'm still searching for a way to get the list of my Youtube favorites returned to me in the order I added them.

That's a great tip. It's annoying to have to fire up a proxy tool to click any further searches from that initial results page - this'll clear up the hiccups with continuing to pages 2 and higher of the results, too.
