How To Download And Save Youtube Videos

Tuberaider Video: How To Download And Save Youtube Videos

Luckily the fine people here put together a little script that lets you save youtube files on your computer.
Basically, use a better browser, install greasemonkey, install a script. And there you go, a nice "download this flash movie" link in your browser! You do know that the browser is the hub! Might be handy for you, I have to give a presentation for a customer in a couple of days and wanted a movie to be in the presentation, so this saves me time.

UPDATE: see lots of tools on mashable

hack youtube

hi dudes.
thanks for posting this comments that show how download from youtube, but there is another amazing way that is mine.
when u browse each page on web it's content sit on your computer, this is why when u replay movies in youtube it doesn't download movie again.
so when you use firefox and opera u can easily get the movie.
firefox cache address is this:
C:\Users\your user name\Local Settings\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\h1exd4fx.default\Cache

so arrange files by size or date created and one of most large files is your movie and copy it to your desktop and rename to "something.flv" and open with KMPlayer that is free or jetAudio 7+ and enjoy.

Opera cache address is this:

saving & playing youtube videos

i'm having trouble playing youtube video files that i have downloaded using a number of the web-based tools listed here and elsewhere. they all seem to download the files fine, but i've never been able to play any of them. using a G4 running os x.2.8, i've tried saflash 7 & 8 (standalone flashplayers), vlc, and a freestanding swf player. none have worked irrespective of whether i have added a ".flv" (or even ".swf) extension or not. any suggestions? doesn't seem like it should be this hard once the files have been saved. i'd be grateful for help of any kind. thanks in advance.



Hi jim i also had this problem but i escaped from this by using k- lite codec pack which you can find easily on the net. It will give 100% perfomance .

Maybe you have a problem when adding .flv, try the one above: ~> the downloaded file will be in .flv format by default, so you don't have to add or change the extension.

Good luck!

playing youtube .flv videos

thanks for responding. the problem with flvplayer is that, judging by the extension, this is designed for use in windows. as i pointed out, i am using a mac G4 running OS X.2.8, so that won't work for me. i did finally find a solution however, and am downloading and playing vids like a machine. thanks again.


Playing FLV

FLV Viewer (Google it) works well for me. It's not the most usable program ever, but it does the job.

Someone should ban all video formats other than MPG! I've got about five players where there should be one.
