I've just tried to watch 3 YouTube movies in Firefox 11 with Flash installed
and discovered using LiveHTTPHeaders that these movies are in FLV format.
Using this format player is smart enough to request just a file offset
but not movie time and it does not need movie metadata such as MOOV atom.
It need just a small static 13-bytes FLV header:
