Default how to download youtube videos to your pc

hi

here is a quick tutorial for those people who would like to download videos from youtube and convert into mpegs or avi. Some videos are being removed so this is a good way of building your own library.

Its very easy using just 2 programs.

Step 1: You need to be using the Mozilla Firefox web browser (much safer than internet explorer) http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

Step 2: Then download the firefox add-on that allows you download movies that have the .flv file extension. Youtube use this file ext. to embed the movies in their site.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006

Step 3: A new icon should appear on your the bottom left of your browser window like this.



Step 4: Go to youtube and select a movie you would like to download, just click and play as you normally would.



Step 5: Click the new icon on the bottom left and a new window opens asking you where you would like to save the video



Step 6: Save the file to your desired folder and a new download status box will open and the file will start to download in the .flv format




Step 7: You should now have a .flv file on your pc of the video you have just downloaded.

Step 8: You now need to decide what you want to do with that file. If you want to watch it direct from your pc you will need a flv player. Here is a free one, dont pay for one

If you would like to burn to disc then you need to convert the .flv to mpg or avi formats. This is great because you can play on your big tv and also pass on to friends etc and spread the word

Step 9: Download a free convertor (SUPER ©) from

www.videohelp.com/tools/SUPER



Step 10: Start the download then install SUPER ©



Step 11: Open SUPER © and select the 3 settings below.





I have found these to work fine, if anyone knows any better settings please shout up

Step 12: Now you are ready to convert, just drag and drop all the files you want to convert in to the bottom box



Step 13: Make sure you have the boxes checked on the files you want to convert. The image below shows just one but you can do more than one at a time. Then click the "encode active files" and wait, it takes about 1 minute for each file.



once converted to your pc simply burn to disc using your fave burning program like nero etc


thanks

and here is proof that movies are being taken off.


It says "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by 911 Eye Witness"

Now we have copyright on truth!!

The vid is in nine parts and they stop access to four of them. That's not right surely.

I had someone use one of my vids last week to make money for his own pocket. 'The Police - You're Freindly Ringtones.'

Hi Darren

Some twat is using your video on youtube to do an advert sort of thing for ringtones. Maybe you should report it as abuse of the rules.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=RGj2maxngFE
Youtube pulled his whole channel before I got in touch with them. Obviously my original vid is still on youtube and if they ever pull just one of my vids I'm off there and making a vid about them!

I`ve been using Total Video Converter for video converting onto my mobile and divx dvd player but if this other one`s faster I`ll use that instead. Cheers for the post

SUPER seems to have a lot of advanced settings in the screenshots.. which is nice.

For the mac users(like me) there is GetTube, which is a simple GUI with a 'download cart' that converts the videos to MP4 or MP3 while downloading them.

http://web.mac.com/simonvrel/en/down...es/GetTube.dmg

v2.3 is stable as ever.
