Download Vids of Youtube onto your harddrive.

I dont know if this is related to pirating so ill just put the thread up and wait for responses first. Dont want to risk suspension.

But yea. If anyone likes a video on youtube and cant find anywhere to download to your harddrive then respond. But only if its allowed.

Re: Download Vids of Youtube onto your harddrive.

I've been doing it for months (downloading the videos and renaming them as .flv files) but I was always too worried to let the whole community know about it.

It'd be cool if a mod could let us know either way as I've got some good tips for converting .flv format into just about anything you want, .mov,.mpeg,.wmv etc etc , even converting the onto my PSP.

A PSP, a 2gb memory card and the power to download any video from youtube etc can liven up even the most boring of lunch breaks.

Re: Download Vids of Youtube onto your harddrive.

To be more specific on step 5.
the embed code should look like this:
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/PPimiYS4qXM"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/PPimiYS4qXM" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

and the link is what ur supposed to copy and paste onto your web browser

Re: Download Vids of Youtube onto your harddrive.

The easy way to do this is:
1) Download and install Firefox. It's better than IE anyway.
2) Install the Video Downloader add-on/extension for FF.
3) Go to YouTube, find a vid you want to DL, click the Video Download button in FF's Status Bar.

Done.

Re: Download Vids of Youtube onto your harddrive.

Firefox is an internet browser that everyone should be using. I've been using it for four years now, and I never go back to Internet Explorer...

Anyways, here is a guide that I have used in the past to save vids from Youtube:
