    Are the .flv files "jumpy" for anyone else? After I download the youtube video mplayer will not play it and when I play it in Kaffeine the video is jumpy and will not play smoothly. The audio is perfect.

    If anyone can suggest an alternative way that avoids this for a beginner I would appreciate this!

    cheers

    Can anyone suggest a simple method for extracting just the audio from a downloaded youtube video?

    I found a couple of programs suggested online, but they are windows only.

    Our biggest problem is always the one we are experiencing at the moment.

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

    I'm not sure I understand...

    when I use this code in the terminal:
    ffmpeg -i input.flv -f mp3 -vn -acodec copy output.mp3

    how do I specify which/where the file is that I am using to get the audio?

    I also tried the second method mentioned there (using mplayer) but got an error message about unknown syntax

    alas!!

    To let all you folks know, I have written a little software tool which uses youtube-dl with a GUI for those who don't like the command line.

    It includes the opportunity to select which format you wish to download as and also stores the directory preference for your videos.

    Find it at

    Feedback most appreciated!

    Thanks

    I've just tried "sudo apt-get install clive".

    Then you just have to type "clive" before a YouTube URL, and there you go!

    Unfortunately, it can't download videos that have been marked as not suitable for minors by annoying morons.

    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!
    this works great...theoretically this must work for all sites streaming video, not just youtube...thanks a lot...
    i used to go to the profile cache directory of firefox and cp the file that was last downloaded (ls -t)...

    I use the new NetVideoHunter add-on to download videos and music not only from Youtube, but from any site:

    you can add downloadhelper extension to your firefox, so when you watch a video you will use this extension to download the video.
    And there's another way, or paste the link of the youtube video in this webpage
