I've almost always found myself (when watching a video) trying to find a way to download videos. Well I've found a way and I feel like I should share it with the rest of the Instructables community so PUMPKIN$ presents a way to download videos from:

Youtube.com NOTE: This only downloads in MP4 FORMAT.

Step 1: Getting Firefox If you do not already have it

If you have Firefox ignore the following and skip to step 2

Ok so if you are going to do this you will need to install Firefox: here

When you are done with that, on to step 2

Step 2: Launching Firefox, adding the tool

So what you're gonna do is start up Firefox, and copy this (Or drag it somehow)into a bookmark.

javascript:if(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/)){document.location.href='http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt='+(isHDAvailable?'22':'18')+'&video_id='+swfArgs['video_id']+'&t='+swfArgs['t']}

(Highlight this and copy it to the little "Paste" sign pictured below.)

Step 3: Go to a Video and test it out

If you go to the Youtube.com page (by clicking the bookmark) all you need do is select download options.

here is a video to test it on please do not take it personally :


Step 4: Notes/ DISCLAMER!

I'm not responsible for any trouble you could POSSIBLY get into when using this (i.e re-uploading as your own, downloading the video in mp3 format and selling the track/ claiming as your own.)

Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!
