haii everyone lets discuss about various softwares or techniques which can be used to download videos from youtube... as u all know youtube officially doesnot provide any download option and we can only view them online..so if u really like the video and want to view them several times one of the best way is to download it.. there are many softwares competing to be the best downloading software for downloading online videos..not only youtube there are many other sites which host online videos and where u should have an option of downloading the vids.. as far as i am concerned i prefer the "ant" toolbar which can be synchronised right into ur firefox or internet explorer and when u open an online video, the download option in the toolbar gets highlighted...thats so simple to use and very effective..although i have started to use it very recentenly i hav found it very effective compared to the many others i have tried... so which one do u prefer???

I like to use the website http://www.mediaconverter.org/ (Media Converter). It's nice because you can plug into the website & download the video in audio and/or video format. There is no software to download which is much better if you cannot download software on the computer you're using. Cheers! Pablo

yeah thats cool..what really matters about the way we download the youtube videos is the speed at which its getting downloaded..ofcourse we cant wish the files to download more than the usual bandlimit but it should be gettng downloaded at the regular speed..if its meeting this condition then what ever method it might we would definitely be happy because at last what we really want is to download the video..

i say you a very very simple method for downloading youtube videos. no realplayer install, no other software install, no copying the link, nothing.. this is the method. if you want to download the video of the following link which is, (crazy animals) http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=T2yy046unZQ&feature=channel_page you just erase in.youtube and type www.voobys that is, your address should be like this in the address bar http://www.voobys.com/watch?v=T2yy046unZQ&feature=channel_page then hit the enter button. new page load. there you have one green button named download video. download it. and rename with your fav name with .flv. for eg., if you are going to give name as animals you should rename as animals.flv Bonus: for playing flv videos or to convert flv files to mpeg or other formats, i had uploaded total video converter software. you can download that too for certain features. the link is: http://www.ziddu.com/download/3133488/TotalVideoConverter3.zip.html enjoy!!!

hi dude i don't use any software to download video from youtube...i just copy the video link and paste it in the keepvid.com......it is a free site that supports downloading videos of any another site, also it gives the option to choose poor and good quality of video to download.......i also tried in another way by installing internet download manger 5.15 which highlights the video and gives download link......
