Saving Videos from YouTube.com
1) Find a good clip on YouTube.com
Tens of thousands of video are submitted to YouTube everyday. Chances are you will find something good on the site. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will be downloading the 1991 TV pilot, Lookwell. It stars Adam West as a former actor turned amateur detective. The show is pure genius. It was written by Conan O'Brien (Late Night with Conan O'Brien) and Robert Smigel, the voice of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Wait for the video file to completely load. Depending on the length of the clip, it make take several minutes to download. Once the clip is cached on your computer, you are ready to find it and convert it.
2) Let the clip COMPLETELY load in your browser
Wait for the video file to completely load! I'm serious. Wait for the video file to completely load! One more time? Wait for the video file to completely load! You'd be surprised how many idiots send us emails everyday that skip this step or are too dumb to know how to read.
Depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the duration of the video file, it may take several minutes to fully load your clip. Lookwell is a full 30 minute TV show and took about 8 minutes to load. Wait until the status bar has filled in all the way to the right. The image below is only about 75% done loading. If the status bar never fully filled up and you unsuccessfully tried to download the clip, DON'T expect it to work. It's an incomplete file. Just have patience and wait.
3) Find and download the FLV file
Once the clip is completely cached on your computer, you are ready to find and convert it. You should be able to watch the entire clip in your web browser. You may think that you are watching the file directly off YouTube's server, but you are not. The video file is actually temporarily saved somewhere on your computer. Let's find it!
