A Handy Greasemonkey Script

For users of Greasemonkey in Firefox, possibly Chrome and certainly Opera on its own, here is an awfully handy script for doing bad things with YouTube videos, like snagging the basis for Wally Gator.

Wally Gator process:

Grab video.
Export to image sequence with Quicktime 7 (unlocked version). The free VLC and various MPlayer/MEncoder thingies can do this too.
Discard superfluous frames, Open as Layers in The GIMP, erase what isn't Wally Gator,* save as GIF.

Thanks, that is an excellent script. Works with Opera also too.
