Well, I think every one know about the most popular share video website named youtube.I like that website, sometime I found rare video on there, I found samurai X ova and Final fantasy full movies on there. to bad I can't save that video to my hard disk... so I was googling today and founded the way!!we can save that video into our own hard disk without needed loading it again. it's really suck because I have poor internet connection in here, I hate to waiting that video buffering. here is the trick, you must have firefox browser (because I try in here with firefox 2) once you found video you want to download just open that page like normally then click on tools - page info - go to media tab. you will see on there link about images, video, etc based on that page. now go to the trick, you need to found the real video files. in this case this is flash movie format so you have to find flash/shockwave embedded on that page. here is the sample (go look into images if you not understand it) http://www.youtube.com/player2.swf?video_id=FhGRFC-OQ8U&l=1450&t=OEgsToPDskLD9DNndQuBhfODJeoGnt1Q video_id=FhGRFC-OQ8U&l=1450&t=OEgsToPDskLD9DNndQuBhfODJeoGnt1Q is the real file we needed, now change url to get request.. http://www.youtube.com/get_video?video_id=FhGRFC-OQ8U&l=1450&t=OEgsToPDskLD9DNndQuBhfODJeoGnt1Q Tadaaaaa.... add this url on your download manager or whatever you used usually. after that open file you completed download with flash video player. here is the link for FLV player http://www.download.com/FLV-Player/3000-2139_4-10467081.html If you want you can also convert that flash movie to any video format example mpeg, avi or 3gp or any popular video format using video converter. you can choose to convert it or leave it as original. here is the link for video converter http://www.effectmatrix.com/total-video-converter/index.htm

Hi, that is one good discovery. But to save you some time finding the real video file, here is a much easier way to do it. just download the add-ons of firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2390/. It is called video downloader. After the download, you can watch your favorite movies with out being online. It is usually FLV file as you have said. Just convert it to fit your movie pleasure. Good luck.!
