How do i download Youtube videos FREE, FAST and WITH NO CATCHES? Answered

Ugh, I spent the last half hour downloading softwares to download youtube videos to itunes, and none worked or I wasn't a administrator. The thing that used to be there on youtube to download videos isn't, and I'm stuck at a crossroad.

If you have RealPlayer then do not use any of the below suggestions. If you  dont have RealPlayer, dont read any further.

When you watch a video on youtube, right click the video, and click: Dowload to RealPlayer. Once you've pressed that, a window will appear showing the progress of the video downloading.

Once it is complete, the video should be located in:

My Documents > My Videos > RealPlayer Downloads > Yours video will be in this folder.

Hope this helps!

I would recommend using Zamzar, this site provides free download service for you to get videos via URL. There's no need to subscribe, input catches or install. Zamzar gives clear procedure to download stuffs within 4 steps, so it's also easy to control with. You may also check into more tips about downloading videos on YouTube.

If you have RealPlayer, then that should make your life a lot easier.

If you have the program, which most computers do, then on the top-right of the Youtube video you are watching should be a text saying something like Download on RealPlayer.

Hope this helps!

If you have Firefox, then I would suggest the Easy Youtube Video Downloader.  You can download any video on Youtube in 3gp, flv, or mp4, and it puts the options right under the description of the video :)

 Until I figure out why Firefox and my system decided not to work together I'm using chrome and msie. Real player capture most videos using those browsers, and I recall it works with fire fox as well. But I disable real player's capture function while usibf firefox, because a  like the firefox extension I was using, but I can't recall what one it was. Real player saves the file as a flv. there are free flv players, and real players plays them back as well. There are free online file coverters that convert the file to another format.
