    Re: HowTo: Download YouTube videos (the easy way)

    Hello everyone,
    Found another easy way... use "www.savetube.com" or any other such website which provides you a download url for Youtube videos...
    1. Open the video you want to download in Youtube.

    2. Open www.savetube.com in another browser window or tab.

    3. Copy the url in the address bar.

    4. Paste it in the space provided in savetube(type "&fmt=6" at the end of the url in the space for high quality .flv) and press go.

    5. The savetube page will re-open showing a "Download" button. Press it and save the video where ever u want to.

    6. As far as converting the file is concerned, just type ".mpg" at the end of the filename before or after downloading it. Example - "get_video.mpg".
    The .flv files don't seem to play with any of the players(Vlc, Totem...), but, the .mpg files play brilliantly well.

    P.S- This method works great in Ubuntu 8.04LTS(Hardy Heron) and Opera 9.25.
    Try it out and let me know...

    I've actually written a GUI tool based on youtube-dl for those people who prefer GUI interfaces. It also allows you to download in a variety of formats, including the one required for IPOD video players.

    Find it here:

    I prefer the first way... I was checking if anyone else found it... feel sorry for windows users... they rely on websites to do what we do by just opening the /tmp and taking out the video.
    The best things in life are truly free

    Here is the easy way:

    Step 1: Find the video you want to download and wait for it to completely finish loading.

    Step 2: Minimize your browser (do NOT close it, some browsers delete the temp directory upon closing), and navigate to the directory /tmp

    Step 3: Drag the flash file onto your desktop. Voila!

    This definitely works with firefox, and probably most other browsers aswell. Enjoy!
    The method you have mentioned here was working fine for me, for years. But now, when i try playing the copied files, i am getting the error "cannot recoganise undf file format". Any ideas? What is this undf file format afterall?
    Thanks in advance
