    I need a program that can extract videos from specific youtube urls. I know tubinator does this but that feature is broken in v2.4 and I don't want to pay for the full version if there's a free solution.

    Anyone using any other program that has this ability?

    Thanks samfisher, but what I need is something that can get the video id's and save them to a notepad file. I don't want to rip the actual videos.

    Sorry should have clarified.

    Yes confined just the url of the video. So it would look like this:

    9t7E4amWDqI

    That's just the video id without the youtube url in front of it.

    Tubinator is the only program that I know of that extracts the urls/video ids

    Just looking for another solution if it exists.

    Here's the file


    just drop it on a webserver, make sure youtubeids.txt is writable.
