    right now i'm using firefox's downloadhelper plugin and ripping the .flv and converting it with mediaconvert, before watermarking with adobe premier. what is the fastest way to download and convert, is there and app or plugin that will rip the vid and save it as a mpg, skipping the conversion stage?

    I'd also like to know that. Also, for anyone wondering:

    Media Convert it's a website that converts your media to a bunch of different outputs.

    that's exactly what i've been using for my conversions, but man is it ever time consuming when you've got a lot of video to convert. i'd like something that does it all quickly in one process locally if there is anything out there to do it.

    TubeHunter is what you're looking for. 29 bucks. I've never seen it cracked.
    Downloads any video anywhere. Where as alot of softwares are for youtube only.
    Then TH converts the video to the format you need the same instant you are downloading it.
    No waiting.

    i'm not a fan of cheap looking watermarks. i like to drop a layer from a psd in. so i'll stick to premier for that, even if that is time consuming in itself. tubehunter seems to be what i'm looking for. thanks.

    I use vixy to convert to mpg doesn't do the watermark though. The programs converts fast and is free during the beta stage. You can get it from vixy*net. Hope this helps

    Video Watermark Factory is still great for bulk watermarks. Tube Hunter is also good for conversions (I use it every once in a while). Personally I like using the FireFox DownloadHelper like you mentioned above and use Total Video Converter to convert in bulk.

    Well, interesting thread. So if you want to work in bulk with videos can someone throw a list up of the fastest software/s to get the job done.

    Thanks

    I use keepvid.com,pwnyoutube.com(Or just add pwn before the youtube video URL tht u want to download).

    To convert those flv,mp4 youtube videos to almost any format you want use "ultra video converter". Its the one tht I use after experimenting with many video converters. Here's a download link to it..(do a virus scan)

    rapidshare*com/files/203471040/Ultra_Video_Converter_v4.4.0227_www*softarchive*net*rar

    (replace * by .)
    Also go check softarchive*com for any software, one of the best warez site for softwares.

    just add kiss to the youtube url and dl it from there for example if the url is hxxp://youtube.com/watch adding hxxp://kissyoutube.com/watch will let u dl the video then convert and watermark with any software

    I am still interested in a quick and dirty way of editing some videos...

    I have only learnt Final Cut which is 1,000 too complex and convoluted.

    Is Premiere any good to DL and hack around a bit? This may be too complex too.

    Thanks for the info some good stuff here...

    :D

    I use keepvid.com.
    You can choose to download the video as flv or mp4.

    i've also used keep vid . c0m but i had a problem whenever i downloaded the mp4s they were all messed up. so i ended up downloading the flvs and converting them. that youtube download program sometimes can't find the videos.
