Ok, the answer to this question may be painfully obvious. I'm trying to download Youtube videos. Has anyone been successful at this? Thanks!

One way I've found very useful is to use RealPlayer. However, it doesn't work with Firefox 3, you've got to use Firefox 2 or IE7.

Save the file as an FLV, so you may want to look into a vid converter as well.

yes it is very easy. first of all you need mozilla firefox, then you need video download helper. then after you install that you need to download the video download helper converter to convert eveything to avi.

I use the Converter at

It even has a beta windows app that you can download that does the same thing from your PC.

It converts youtube to a choice of:

divx avi
mov (MAC)
mp4 (IPOD)
3gp (Mobile)
mp3 (Audio Only)
flv (flash file)

Since I've found it I haven't used anything else.

I use

xVideoServiceTheif (xVST) to save from 50 different video service sites inc youtube, right click copy link address, then paste into xVST


in conjunction with:

VLC media player


which plays just about every format

I expect (not sure) that the browser will save it to a temporary location (it does in linux, not sure about windows) while you watch it. Just find that location, find the video and copy it, since the browser will delete the original when you navigate away from the page.
Simple as that, no need for external software except the player.

Even easier, go to

All you do is add the URL to the query box, and click download. Then all you have to do is choose to save it as FLV or MP4.
