Different Ways to Download Youtube VideosSeptember 15th, 2011 | Posted by in Downloads
YouTube is the new TV 2.0 and everybody loves to visit this website. Why not? There are plenty of funny and classic videos that we could not get enough of. Most of them are to be shared with your friends but what if they are outside? Don’t you just wish that you could keep those videos and show them off to your friends using a mobile media player? Unless you are connected to the internet on your phone, this is impossible. First of all, you cannot find a Save As button when you right click on the video since it uses flash player. So how can you download YouTube videos?
Actually, there are now a variety of ways that will allow you to download YouTube videos. First is that you visit a website that lets you download the videos by simply pasting the URL of the video of your choice in their download box. Now, click on download to begin the process. Depending upon the size of the video and the connection speed, it may take a while before you can view your video.
Now, there are applications that you can download and install in your computer so that you can download YouTube videos later. After you have finished installing the downloader, you can now grab those online videos by copying the link or the URL of the video from the address bar. There are download managers that support clipboard monitoring. This enables you to automatically add the link that you have copied to your download manager.
One of the most important things that you have to remember when it comes to these pieces of software for downloading videos on YT is that some cannot be run on other operating systems. Thus, you need to check whether or not the application supports the current OS that you are using. Another method that allows you to download YouTube videos is to find a plug in for your browser that directly downloads videos from YouTube on the fly. You do not have to open another application on your computer. By simply watching the video on YT, you will be able to find an option below the video or by right clicking the video so that you can commence your download process.
Whether you are planning on using a web based downloader for YT videos or you want to utilize the tools that you can download into your computer, it is important to note that once you have downloaded the videos they are in FLV format. Not all players support FLV especially the media players found in mobile devices. You will still have to convert these videos into workable video files for your player or device. Nevertheless, if you have an FLV player, you can view the videos that you have downloaded right away. There are also codec packs that you can download so that your PC’s media player will be able to play your FLV videos without conversion.
