How To Download And Save Youtube Videos
As mentioned earlier, many files have been booted from youtube this week, and that's sure to continue as the site keeps growing and drawing more attention. Luckily the fine people here put together a little script that lets you save youtube files on your computer. You can just follow the instructions in that link, but I'll repeat them here because it's a little involved and some key steps are buried in the comments section over there.
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.
Now you need to either download a media player that runs .flv files, or download a program that converts them to other file types. Here are links to both:
Riva FLV Encoder
Total Video Converter
And that should do it. Let me know if this works for y'all!
