How can I download YouTube videos on my computer?

Though there are several ways you can download YouTube videos, one of the easiest ways is to visit www.youtubex.com. Paste the URL of the video you want to save into the blank Download field on YouTubex.com and then click Download video (a pop-up ad will appear). Once the site retrieves your video, click the Download link. (YouTube videos use the FLV, or Flash Video, format, so make sure to add the .flv extension to the end of the file names. To view FLV files, download Automagic Software's free flvThing

 

Your video will eventually appear down here once the script finishes running.

 

To download YouTube videos to your iPod, try PodTube ($4.99, demo version available). Just download the app and fill up your iPod.

There are lot of programs available in the internet to download youtube videos. "Downloader9", "KeepVid" are two such programs. Just give a small search and you will find more easy ways to do it....

Here is an another easy way to do it.
# 1. Install the Greasemonkey Extension for Firefox.
# 2. Right-click this .js file and select "Install User Script" (if you don't see that option try step one again)
# 3. Now on every youtube video page there should be a red bar at the top, that says "Save As" to download Flash video. (see screenshots here)
# 4. Right click the text in the red bar, select "Save Link As," and save the file as a .flv file. Firefox will rty to save it as "get_video.php," you need to change the ".php" to ".flv," and change the first part to whatever you prefer.

I use a couple of pretty handy Firefox add-ons for my general video-grabbing needs:

1. YousableTubefix: it's a neat Greasemonkey script which pretty much enhances Youtube's interface and gives you the option to download videos in either MP4 or FLV HiQ formats, if available (older videos tend to only be available, for example, in standard FLV, whereas newer HD ones, can be downloaded in high quality MP4).

2. DownloadHelper: this one not only grabs videos from YouTube but pretty much all major video-sharing sites. You name it, it's there. It gives you FLV files.

Also all the youtube videos can be easily downloaded using "Internet download manager" software. It can be used to download any FLV video from any site. All those can be downloaded from a single click.

Thanks for sharing. I tried Safari and vixy.net to download Youtube videos, but not stable. And this Youtube video converter for Mac  can both download Youtube videos and convert it to other formats.

YouTubeRobot.com today announces YouTube Robot 2.0, a tool that enables you to download video from YouTube.com onto your PC, convert it to various formats to watch it when you are on the road on mobile devices like mobile phone, iPod, iPhone, Pocket PC, PSP, or Zune.

YouTube Robot allows you to search for videos using keywords or browse video by category, author, channel, language, tags, etc. When you find something noteworthy, you can preview the video right in YouTube Robot and then download it onto the hard disk drive. The speed, at which you will be downloading, is very high: up to 5 times faster than other software when you download a single file and up to 4 times faster when you download multiple files at a time.

Manual download is not the only option with YouTube Robot. You may as well schedule the download and conversion tasks to be executed automatically, even when you are not around. Downloading is followed by conversion to the format of your choice and uploading videos to a mobile device (if needed). For example, you can plug in iPod, select the video, go to bed, and when you wake up next morning, your iPod will be ready to play new YouTube videos.

to download youtube.com videos, I use some software called TubeTV. It's on the apple downloads site and is completely free. The catche is it's mac-only software, which, you should be a mac user anyway

or if you are using firefox there are several addons that can do the same thing at the puch of a button. "dowloadhelper" is on that works great for me. than you can convert it for ipod using isquint (free) or visualhub ($30).

Yeah, I find that downloading the get_video in the activity window is the quickest way. Then I just pop it into iSquint to convert either for iPod or TV.

When you have a vid open in Safari, open the Activity window. Scroll to a file that is bigger than the rest. Option-double click it to download. Should be downloading a file called Get_video. Just rename it in Finder.

For free conversion, use QuickMix (Google it), import it, and Sae As movie to make a QuickTime file.

All this is complicated at first, but it's free.

The YouTube is a great place that allows to watch, upload and share videos. But it doesn't allow to download videos on their desktop. Now many free  tools has come where  you can download videos. But only few tools where you can  download youtube videos  directly through just copy and paste the URL of the video.  In which one of the tool is youtubex which is mentioned in above post.No need to install any software. Just click the download option.
