Firefox also has a plugin that you can use.

Careful what you download to avoid copyright infringement.

it is not what you download, it is what you spread!

Downloading illegul and copyrighted materials are also an indirect support/boost to the content. Specially if it depends on Ad-revenue and if you have to go through couple of such things before downloading the actual content.

Intellectual property is a mad subject these days best to archive even 100% original content channels - you NEVER KNOW. Will this Mozilla addon do an entire channel automatically? Thanks for the share

I dont really download to keep a youtube clip. I do it for the convenience of watching latter. But true sometimes I do keep them.

PS

I thought if it was on Youtube it was copyright to be used and seen.. At least by the person who downloaded it..

Oh: I just downloaded 4K Video Downloader... himmm It seems to do everything I requested. Well the pay for version does.. And Im happy to pay. Just checking it out now. But it seems great..

The pay for version looks like it can download an entire youtube channel... That will be great for tutorial sites like http://www.youtube.com/user/technotipDOTorg/videos

Well admittedly I haven't uploaded anything to youtube in a while but I release stuff all the time. There are various degrees of creative commons licenses that I use on most sites.

I hate all this copyright Stuff but I do feel good when I to pay for my Kindle books. I will most certainly pay for the 4K Downloader if it works out that it does what I want it to do. I dont really download youtube titles for permanent storage as I only have 500 gigs... I like to USB stick them and sneeker net them over to my 32" TV.

4K Downloader turns the Youtube clips into mp4 which I can play via the USB port on the TV.

I am thinking turning a Raspberry PI into a Media PC and connecting it soon..though

SO MUCH THIS^

@dean as well - a lot of media boxes have big corporate interests tied to them so they will only support some formats. The best way really is to have a full desktop PC connected via HDMI to your TV but not everyone has the space to do this, Pi is a great cheap alternative, running RaspBMC with great results myself - just use my films stored upstairs over network and 1080p is fine despite having a teeny gpu and cpu.

Think I've got it now. I'm in South Africa, staying with my sister and my brother and law is currently planning on upgrading to a 40 inch Samsung that has capability of transfering data, sort of designed that way. Seems to be the vogue now.

I'm not entirely sure what the market is like these days (in terms of whether they all have those features now, just to varying degrees) however I really wouldn't bother with paying extra for a HDD on your TV or something that calls itself 'smart', as long as the picture isn't any better I wouldn't bother. Most 'smart' TVs I've come across filter Youtube search results for example like an xbox 360 does. Good luck finding a proper browser in a 'built in' device, it's as bad as portable devices.

aTube is the best software for this.
I don't think this would be illegal, in my case I hate youtube ''loading bar'' I much prefer download and watching later and much cases I deleted Wink because consume my hard disk space Wink Wink Wink

If you haven't paid for the full version let me recommend youtube-dl.

It's command line based but gets the job done in one script.

Just cd into the youtube-dl directory and enter:
youtube-dl -i -c "URL OF CHANNEL"

Well, I'm not legal expert.
IMHO,
copyright infringement
Intellectual property
Trademark
Patent
are quite complicated topic.
Those are related to local and International laws and acts.
A very big topic to explore. Question

Again, IMHO,
Learn how to download a file is much more simple.

the most annoying thing about youtube is when you're about to watch a video, most commonly a music clip on your phone or tablet, and there is this message: "the owner of this video did not make it available to watch on cell phones. Add to your list to watch later on a PC." Foxtrot Uniform!!
