The least-frustration way is probably just to sign up here: <<<<<<<<<

It's cookie based, so you don't need to be signed in.


So I went to the supplied url and "signed up."  Then I opened up a YouTube

Flash; I'm not one of the Linux fanatics who refuse to use anything
"commercial," but I thought I'd give it a try.)
