How to download and Convert YouTube Videos? Back in year 2007, YouTube was one of my favorite subjects of discussion here on Sizlopedia.
At the very first I made and shared a list of the Best YouTube Video Downloaders on the web. Then I made one of my own YouTube Video Downloader to allow users to easily download YouTube videos using the service.
YouTube Download & Convert, as the name suggests, is a Windows utility that will allow you to download and covert YouTube videos to virtually any other format.
Likewise there were many other posts related to YouTube tools, tips and tricks and YouTube hacks and marking the start of 2008 with a new YouTube related post I would like to share a new tool with you.
The converted videos retain the quality and can be run on any player or device. The application is pretty simple to use. You just provide the URL of the YouTube video that you want to download, select a format for conversion and it will do the job for you.
Simple and very easy to use. The utility is available for download at CubedLabs.

Copying YouTube Videos
The videos in YouTube are encoded in the Macromedia Flash format. This prevents normal people from downloading these videos and making digital copies out of them. YouTube has taken such a measure to put a stop to the extensive circulation of copied video files which are illegal. Another reason as to why YouTube uses this format is because most of the computers support this format. However there are many ways available which let people get around this restriction that the the video sharing website has imposed on its users. A person who is well versed with the working of a computer can dig deep and get the videos from the temporary internet files. This is because the video that is being played will first have to be downloaded onto ones PC before it can be viewed. This video which has been downloaded would remain on the PC during the playback period. It has to be however mentioned here that the method of copying videos from the site is not ethically correct and is against the laws of the site. Copy YouTube Videos
YouTube.com is a site which allows users to view and share video clips free of cost. In the site users who have registered themselves can also upload videos of their choice and let other people see these video clips. The site also lets people post videos on their blogs and other personal websites very easily. But since any user can upload the video of his or choice onto the site, the copyright violations are very frequent. The site however performs a regular screening of the videos that have been uploaded and tries to make sure that there is no sexually explicit content in the videos that have been uploaded on the site.Copy YouTube Videos
Make an offline copy of a YouTube video.As part of my gathering and thinking I decided to store a copy of the interesting YouTube videos on my own Mac. After some searching I discovered this particularly useful technique:
I’m preparing to present a keynote at a conference in April. Right now I’m just gathering ideas and resources, but there are several YouTube videos I may be interested in showing.
you can get the FLV that is being played without additional software, by playing a video in Safari with the Activity window open. You should see one entry that is increasing in size, up to some number of megabytes. Option-double click on that entry, and the FLV will download.Make an offline copy of a YouTube video
Once you have it you cannot play it in the latest Flash Player, that only plays swfs, and this is an FLV. If you install the Perian components (http://www.perian.org/) you can then play the FLV in QuickTime Player.
You may need to rename the file that gets downloaded. Just call it what you like, with .flv at the end.
As any presenter knows, if the Internet’s involved it doesn’t pay to rely on being able to go online — it’s best to have offline copies of resources, just in case.
[I remember running one training session a few years ago, about how to use the Internet, where the connection died at the beginning of the session, with no hope of getting it back up and running that day …]

YouTube displays its videos embedded in a Flash player with no way to download them to your hard drive. Luckily, videoblogger Josh Kinberg provides a Greasemonkey script that helps you do just that. (Non Firefox/Greasemonkey users, a bookmarklet’s available in the comments at that link as well.) Once the script is enabled, click on the “Save as to download Flash video” at the top of any YouTube video page.The file you’re prompted to download will be called “get_video.php” or somesuch. Be sure to change the filename to something with a .flv extension, which is a Flash movie.
Once you’ve got the Flash movie saved, it’s time to convert it. If you’re on a Windows PC, try iTinySoft Total Video Converter. Mac users, try the ffmpegX utility [via Mac Dev Center].
Now if you download videos directly from Youtube with the common methods like using the Internet Cache, download managers like Orbit Downloader or Firefox extensions like Download Helper you still end up with flv files.
Until recently all videos provided by Youtube were encoded as flash videos in the format .flv. With the recent addition of high resolution videos, or lets say higher resolutions than before, Youtube now provides mp4 videos of most videos on site as well.
If you want to download Youtube videos as mp4 files right now you can use one of two options. The first is provided by a bookmarklet that can be used in Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer. The Get Bookmarklet [via Google OS]has to be saved as a bookmark, best way would be to drag it into the bookmarks toolbar for fast access. While bookmarklets are nice they require action for every video that you want to download, not that great.
A better solution is to use a Greasemonkey script that adds the functionality to Firefox automatically. Download Youtube Videos as MP4 is a small Greasemonkey Script that adds a Download as MP4 link beneath the video information box on the right pane of the video page. You need to right-click that link and select Save As from the menu to download the video as mp4.
