Instructables

Google already has a option for downloading videos, but you tube does not. This is an instructable describing on how to download the videos off of youtube to your computer for editing, storing, whatever.

It opens up endless possibilities for example you can take existing videos like this one



and crappily edit them to be like this one

Step 1: Get the software

You need firefox to do this. http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/central/

You also need grease monkey, great software that allows you to control websites http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/

Once grease monkey is installed you need the youtube extension http://www.joshkinberg.com/blog/files/youtube_to_me.user.js

Step 2: Install the script

The you tube script can only be installed once grease monkey has been installed. You open that script site, and an install bar should show up. Click it and it should install.

When you are done you can go to you tube, making sure the script is enabled, and a red bar with the option to download should appear on the top of the screen. Click it.

Step 3: Opening the .flv file

Download a program like Riva http://www.rivavx.com/?encoder and change the format to something a bit more usable.

And voila, you have a usable video ripped from you tube. And all it took was losing your dignity to a monkey.

With all of the above, our major concern has always been fast YouTube downloads and speedy video converting.

That's why I prefer to use YouTube to MP3 Converter (http://youtube-to-mp3-converter.org)
YouTube to MP3 Converter is a fast freeware to download and convert YouTube to MP3 and most popular video formats.

And the major advantage are fast YouTube downloads and speedy video converting.

I don't like to use buggy browser add-on to download YouTube or other video-sharing websites' videos, the downloading process often blocked or time-out. I don't know why! But when I use this Youtube video recorder , I can easily record videos from YouTube and get videos from it at batch.

I installed moonshell151_with_dpgtools121 on my R4 card, everything works well, games, mp3 and this video I downloaded .dpg Looney Tunes --- Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd --- Rabbit Fire (1951) I am trying to play some videos I downloaded from utube and so far nothing seems to work. I used Clip Extractor & saved the videos to avi. I used Super Video Coverter (v20009.build.35),to convert them to .dpg It worked fine. I used dpgshow.exe to watch them and all is great. I copy the files to my SD card and when I load Moonshell the files are not there! What am I doing wrong? Please, help me!
