Is it possible to save a youtube video on my hard drive? I know how to embed a youtube video into another website, but I don't know how to save the video file to my drive. I'm actually more interested in saving a video from wcafights.com - but it seems to be set up in similar fashion to youtube videos.

Thanks.

If there is a way to save YouTube videos to your hard drive, I would love to learn how. :)

If you're on Firefox, go to their Main page & click the Add-Ons button on the top page. It should take you HERE (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/). In the search bar, put in "downloadhelper" and click the top result. That should take you HERE (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006).

Now, when I first used it, it would only save the files as .flv, so you would need to either convert the file or find a .flv player. Now they're saying that the program will convert the stuff for you.

Yes, at home I do. Only IE at work. They won't let us install Firefox.

I don't know about Firefox.....but there's a website: www.downloadyoutubevideos.com that you can use, just follow the directions, but then you'll have to get a way to convert the video from .flv to .avi.........there's converters out there.

Later.

Download the newest RealPlayer at www.real.com. Using Internet Explorer, it will give you the option to download virtually any video and save it as a *.flv file.

Unfortunately, they don't have that plugin for Firefox :(

Yeah, thats old stuff :laugh:

Use aTube Catcher. It's a handy little program that automatically downloads videos from Youtube, Myspace, and others, and then converts it AVI for you also.

Seriously? I got hammered by a virus when I tried to download that aTubeCatcher thing. It was a program running as if it were virus protection, but kept popping up every few seconds telling me that my computer was infected and I could get rid of the virus by buying their full version.

I finally managed to get rid of it all but it was a serious pain. It popped up so frequently that it made doing anything else nearly impossible.

If nothing else works, literally google "youtube video stealer, or snagger, etc.."

There are tons of programs out there for doing just that.

I have one I can e-mail you if you don't have one. It's called youtube downloader and is 5.37 meg. It converts it to a .flv file, but has it's own converter built in to convert it to other forms. Sorry though, it doesn't come with virii.
