Very informative! Thanks for showing clearly how to download Youtube videos. I always use Acethinker Video Downloader to save online video to my laptop, free and works pretty well. It is an online tool that lets you download video right from the browser. You don't have to install any additional plug-ins or add-ons. Share it here as an alternative method.

Keepvid installed the software bundler: Qin32.SquareNet virus on my computer. Would you please take the link off this page before it gets anyone else? Here is a much better one:

What's with the download box? An executable from adobe?

tycoonman (author)The Nate Dawg2008-07-08

I just found the picture online, and I'm just saying that a box like that one will appear. It won't say adobe. Sorry. Thanks for reading my Instructable!

I was just joking. I figured something like that. How long does it take for the site to convert it?

tycoonman (author)The Nate Dawg2008-07-09

Actualy, it's pretty fast, anywere from 10 seconds to 30. It's pretty fast! Oh, and this is my first instructable, is it clear?

Pretty clear and straightforward. But I found some typos in step 2:You said past instead of paste; You said your instead of you. You could could take out the instructions on how to paste (most (if not all) people know how to paste). Instead of "in front of you", you could say "on the page". Hope this helps!
