A way to save YouTube vids

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

As you might know it is not possible to download the movies directly from YouTube. There are however some sites that have a workaround making it possible to save the Flash Video (FLV-file) on your harddrive.

The process is itself fairly easy, just paste the link to the YouTube
video you want on to one of the following sites and download!

Since the
downloaded file will be a Flash video file (.flv), you will need a Flash Player
to play them. The ‘all-media-files’ player VLC will play them too, converting the file with a flv-to-mpg converter and then play it in Winblows MediaPlayer is another way 🙂   (& tutorial: )
