How to save youtube videos

Not so long ago (i hope), i’ve said about saving files from online video host (flash) to your computer? Did I? I hope the sharing this time will benefit all of us, for educational purpose most of the time. And I guess with this tips I hope it would really ease up a lot of pain in finding research resources probably.

Please be noted that this tutorial might be applied to other online video hosting site such as Google Video. For now we’ll be using YouTube. A little bit of disclaimer to save my a** from trouble lol : I’m sharing this for educational purpose and hope you guys would benefit in a way that you won’t use it for commercial purpose by selling or doing illegal thing with it.


First, we’ll point our browser to our favourite Youtube. And we’ll have to find the video that you wish to keep.


After choosing a video that you decided to keep, right click on the address bar and copy the entire address of where the video located.


And we’ll then head to a magical website namely KeepVid which will do the rest of the magic for you. What we’ll have to do here is to right click on the input box and paste the copied URL into it. Click on DOWNLOAD to proceed.


Soon there will be an additional box appearing below, and informing you that the video is ready for download. Right click on the link and select Save Link As, and start to anticipate :D. For your information, you can always view FLV files using VLC player or any well known Flash Video Player, such as RIVA FLV Player which i really like. Enjoy!
