You should have Chromium 51 and RPi-youtube now installed! Simply install the extension from the Chrome web store (rpi-youtube) and click on the icon whenever you want smoother video viewing, on any supported website.
RPi-youtube, view youtube locally (much smoother)
I've released a Chromium extension for the RPi that allows you to play youtube videos in omxplayer, allowing much smoother playback.
Currently, when you install the extension and all the required files, when you visit a youtube video it will prompt you if you want to view the video locally. If you visit another video site and click on the icon, the same should happen, support more than 600 websites. After pressing OK and waiting a few seconds, omxplayerGUI will pop up displaying the video. It's as simple as that!
Any problems, please post them here on this thread. It's the best place where I can reply.
