Not Hard Youtube Video Downloads

About: From the 1st of May 2010, all Hydroelectric/ Hydroelectric7 accounts will be terminated. The new account for the owner will be: “Standard_Apps”. Any further questions, contact: Than...

In this instructable, I am going to show you how to download "Youtube" videos quickly. Please enjoy my instructable and also comment, rate or even ask any questions that you have.


Step 1: What You Need and the Programme

First of all, check that you have all of these things:

Computer (Laptop or Desktop)
An internet connection (The faster your internet, the better)
Quicktime Player  or Windows Media Player

Ok, next follow this link to the download page of Tooble. That is the name of the software that you will be using to download the videos.

Download to your desktop follow the next step.

Step 2: Download and Install

Follow the link on the previous step and select your type of system. For me, I am using Windows 7. Click on the circle and press Download Now. Let it download, and depending on your internet speed it might take a while, or it might be very quick (like mine).  When it has finished downloading, click Run and the install window should appear.

Follow these on-screen prompts:
1. Press next
2. Click Allow
3. Change the Components (Desktop Icon, Start Menu Icon, etc)
4. Destination (Where you want to install it)
5. What you want the file to be called
6. After installing, click Finish

Step 3: Running the Programme

Once you click finish, a window should appear. Wait and it will disappear and will be replaced with an update window. Once the update has finished, click Finish in the lower right had side of the open window. Once clicked, the programme will start up and your almost ready to start downloading.

When the software package opens, up in the top left hand corner, you will see a long bar that says: "Paste Your URL Here", or something along those lines. Paste in the url and another window will open up say what you are downloading, how much longer, and how big the file is.

Step 4: Your Finally Done!!!

Good job to who have read this instructable and have done it. I hope that you keep downloading those videos and enjoy them. Please comment, rate, or even ask any sort of questions you may have.

Thank-you Fellow Instructablers!

    Helpful, but I used to use Total Video Downloader for Mac, which can download any online video. Youtube, vimeo, vevo, meatcafe... This software is very easy to use and download videos at very high speed

    figured I'd try a reinstall just on the off chance that it worked, and viola like magic, its fine again

    Tooble does much of the same things that Download Helper would. Tooble will even let you change the file format, save directory, etc.

    Download Helper is an online based software. If so, what would you do if say there was a virus on the website and that everyrtime you went to download something, it would download the virus too?

    By the way I use tooble too..
    You don't even have to open a browser to get the youtube videos you can just search for it in the program..

    Download Helper is NOT an online based software (ie: send link to site and receive direct download) It is a plugin for the firefox browser, that downloads videos directly through your browser.

    It works essentially the same as Tooble just without the need to install any extra software.

    Even easier: go to and paste the url of the video: instant download and no software needed!

    Hey fversteegen,
    I've also used that site, but what would you do if that website was closed down, or was being updated when you wanted to use it?
