Ive seen a couple of threads where people expressed frustration in dl youtube videos.

A couple of solutions.

Generally google download youtube video. Ton of sites come up.

One of them is

Ok more specific, permanent and easy.

On the Opera browser (my fav) you can install a java plug in which puts download links in different quality formats (hd - low def) under each vid. This plug in works on some other sites.

Heres the link:

Opera Java plug in

Another one which works great is 'clipta'. Clipta is a plug in which works on Firefox. And most all videos work using clipta.

Not its called a toolbar and in my opinion all toolbars are quasi viruses. However this toolbar is barely a toolbar. I highly recommend it.

Clipta DL from cnet

Follow the instructions on each of the above links for Opera and FF. Good luck and happy archiving.

I use Real Player. I think it's annoying every time I watch a video on the net, Real player prompts me to download the video, some times I do. I have a whole slew of Gerald Celente failed predictions for instance.

I use Orbit Downloader, it's by far the most simple way to go...even with streaming videos.

I use the DownloadHelper app for Fire Fox to download any embedded media.

Oh, you want to download videos from youtube? Here is an extension for Firefox that is very useful for Youtube: Easy YouTube Video Downloader and here is anyther extension that works in every video site I have ever visited, including porn sites. Video DownloadHelper. Then, you can watch those downloaded videos later with VLC Player. VLC has a nice interface, and a built in EQ, for those music videos you love to watch. For you Linux users, VLC is available in Synaptic or Yum as the case may be.

Be careful, as am pretty sure obama has passed law or is very close to doing so that will make a huge dent in torrent control.....

Thee hackers said, go ahead and take torrents......we got Usenet. So I would recommend you research Usenet!

Yeah its funny how things have gone full circle from usenet to peer2peer and back to usenet again.
Are usenet files still posted in multipart rar files or is that old news now?

I like Youtube Downloader by Biennesoft.

It works like a charm for me on youtube and a lot of other websites.
