    I read most of the threads in the Youtube section and also did a search. I see quite a few posts about increasing views but how do I download a video?

    I apologize if this has been answered before but I just couldn't find the info.

    Thanks.

    Manual procedure by me.... :)

    Go open firefox....then erase all history and files from tools option....Open the youtube video...and let it complete....then type in firefox address bar without quote..."about:cache"...then go in disk cache i.e. 2nd option...then there will be a link....copy that and paste in RUN..and press enter...there u will see some files...arrange it by size...look at the largest size file....rename it to whatever.avi or any format u want to play in.....bingo..u r done!!!!:)


    You can do this trick with any music and video file!!!!

    You need firefox + greasemonkey + youtube perfect preview
    and you get that:
    [​IMG]

    I thought you as a blackhatter knew (?!)

    You don't see it on this video but there is also an HD on/off button when HD is available & if u click on the download button you can directly download the HD video Or the highest stream available (HQ)

    If you download realplayer. It allows you to download pretty much any flash video that you view on your web browser. That might be the easiest method.

    Yeah i know, you need avisynth + directshow and virtualdub (if you want to encode in .avi (divx,x264 etc...) or maybe tmpgenc (for mpeg2 dvd/svcd) that's the best way & i mean the BEST to convert all the exotic videos you find on the net (.wmv, .mov, .flv, .mp4 etc) not to mention avi's & mpegs
    Anyway, once you get them just open your notepad an copy/paste this line & save as .avs (not .txt) pick type = all types before:
    DirectShowSource("C:\Documents and Settings\blabla\Myvideo.flv",FPS=29.970, ConvertFPS=true)

    explanation:
    first, you write the path of your video
    second you stipulate what's the frame rate of the video (it could be 24.000; 25.000; 23.976 but here i keep it simple it's 29.970 a.k.a standard ntsc

    Then you open this script with virtualdub or tempgenc or another software the which must accept .avs scripts.

    I suggest you get the k-lite codec pack to begin with http://www.codecguide.com/

    Peace

    Just get DownloadHelper - A firefox plugin that downloads videos off almost any site.

    You can also use websites like pwnyoutube(dot)com just get the youtube link and put "pwn" before "youtube" in the address bar.

    Go to CNET and get YouTube Downloader.
    hxxp://d*wnload.cnet.c*m/YouTube-D*wnl*ader/3000-2071_4-10647340.html?tag=mncol (change hxxp to http and * to o)
    In the software you simply enter the YT url of the video you want to download. Then it gives you the option to convert the video to Ipod MOV, MP4, WMV, AVI and MP3 if you want just the audio. It's a simple software that works pretty well.

    If you run windows you could use Windows movie maker and if you run Linux you can use Avidemux
