Hey,

1) First of all, to make your job easier, you are advised to get a tool bar for faster access to youtube.com.

2) Click your favourite video clip, you can see the URL in your browser becomes something like this :

3) Right click the mouse and select "copy"

4) Paste the URL at our download page.

5) When the download link shows, You should right-click -> "Save Target As" OR copy and paste the link into your download manager.

6) The .flv file is not a common multimedia file, you need a software called FLV player to play it.

7) Install the FLV player into your computer.

8) Select the video clip that you downloaded and play

Thanks.

Dear Kenneth Fuego,

 

YouTube does not allow users to download video from the site. But here is a solution which will allow you to copy and store YouTube videos. This method does not require any additional software, and will not cost you additional bandwidth.

 

Steps to Download/Copy YouTube videos to your PC :

 

Before You can perform the steps, make sure the hidden files are visible in windows.

 

Step 1: Browse and watch Videos in any Web Browser. In order to copy the video, at first stream the whole video and keep the browser window/tab open.

 

Step 2: Go to explorer and navigate to the following location

Windows XP: C:Documents and settings/*username*/Local Settings/Temp

Windows Vista/Windows 7: C:/Users/*username*/Appdata/Local/Temp

 

Step 3: In the temp folder look for file which is named "fla*some_number*.tmp, for example "fla128.tmp"

 

Step 4: The "fla***.tmp" file is the video that was downloaded to your local cache. Copy the file to your desired file location and rename it "whatever_you_like.flv"

 

That's it, using this steps you can store a video from YouTube easily,without wasting even extra bandwidth.

 

Best Regards,
