A good youtube downloader ?





dude_xyx
Plz post if anyone know a good youtube downloader , which let you download videos into avi/mpeg/mp4 formats Smile
CrimsonStrange
Arrow Naevius YouTube Converter is a pretty slick piece of shareware.

Idea Of course, you could always do a search for a freeware version of such a program...

And as I've suggested before, you could look into an online FLV converter, such as Vixy.net...
Ratmaster
http://tubecodes.com - They should have gotten sued by now.
MrBlueSky
You don't even need a program for that Smile

http://vixy.net/
WickedGravity
Vixy is one of the best ones out there.
OS Master
I have used Vixy many times and it is the best one I have come across. I hope our suggestions have helped.
MrBlueSky
Does somebody know if it is possible to download videos from other site except youtube and googlevideo with vixy?
brokenadvice
KeepVid.com downloads videos from pretty much any site, but it keeps them in FLV format.

andy26
This one i found is great it is a website where you enter the url and you can also choose which format you want to convert the video to and then you can download it.

www.vixy.net
jackill
As someone mentioned the best solution is: keepvid.com to save video as flv, and Batch Flv Converter: http://www.ripzor.com/flvconverter.html to convert flv file to avi, mpeg.
PanicZone
If You Have Firefox Use The Video Downloader Plugin Or Use Vixy One Of Them 2 And After Just Use media-convert.com To Convert Them For Free!
lordwarlord

I use firefox with the videodownloader extension... it saves it in .flv format and then you can convert to any other format.
jynxanims
Yeah, same here. I use the video downloader extension with firefox. Basically, it picks it up from its roots, the flv. Then you can use a convertor to convert it to anything that you need. I use it for ipod vids...works well./.
Swiftblade
I think the newest real player 11 or something can download youtube videos. I didnt try out though but I think I heard and saw it somewhere that it can.
nhuabo
it is a pity that vixy.net doesn't work for me...
I don't know why??????????

keepvid.com is great.
MrBlueSky
The site is often too busy, and doesn't work. Try it at different times of the day. But I too have recently installed the above mentioned video downloader firefox extension, which is much better than vixy.net. Smile
Srs2388
I have like 10 youtube vids on my ipod by using 3 things... including itunes.

keepvid is the best

I use KeepVid.com as well, and use SUPER to convert them into other formats, such as MP4 (for my iPod). It's simply....well, SUPER! Laughing Very Happy

Try out Ook Video for Mozilla Firefox extensions. It does all the tricks for you. And for playing FLV, try to google FLV players. There are numerous freewares around for that.
thunderfish
you can use the free flv downloader to download flv files, and you can use Moyea FLV to Video Converter to convert flv to videos, I always use it, it works well.
surdy
vixy looks gr8
thanks for the link Very Happy
ProtoMan
I personally love Wondershare Youtube downloader (The link is www.wondershare.com ) if I remember correctly. It is well-designed, very user-friendly, easy to use and also has a lot of features. Just give it a try, I am sure you will love it Smile

But if you don't want a program, then Vixy is a good one, I used to use their service before I grabbed the free version of Wondershare Youtube Downloader.
TomGrey
Since I'm looking for FREE sw, first (and almost only), the FLV converter is out.

Are there any other free FLV converters?

Super does this, but I haven't used it yet (still converting AVI files, slowly)

Super is free. But it doesn't give the same 4/3 conversion ration that the FLV file seems to have, so I'm not sure which of 5:4 or 11:9 to choose.
A Super tutorial would be nice...

But my plan is to grab ... Naruto from youtube in English, or maybe from bitTorrents, and burn them on DVDs to watch.

http://vid-recon.tk For Downloading in FLV

And USE FLV>AVi converter xD

No reason to use FLV > AVI converter, just use Media Player Classic that can handle it.

When you are surfing the Internet, you are to encounter funny videos from time to time on the video sharing sites, such as YouTube, Music, Myspace, Metacafe, Google Video, iFilm, Dailymotion, etc. It must be made clear that the videos posted on these public sites are all in the FLV file format. The FLV is a proprietary file format for publishing videos online. It offers high rates of compression, facilitating online delivery.

Moyea FLV to Video Converter Pro allows users to convert FLV to DVD, specifically, to convert FLV downloaded from YouTube, Myspace, etc, to MPEG-encoded DVD files for playback on the DVD players to share with your friends or family. This is how:

1. Launch the program, you can import the source FLV files into the program by following the on-screen instructions. Then you can see the effect of the particular source FLV files in the Preview Panel on the right side of the File List on the interface.


2. Settings
Click on the Settings tab, and you can proceed to set the parameters of the end video file. Select MPEG for the Export Type, and NTSC DVD/PAL DVD for Sub-type. The Frame Size of the DVD file format has been pre-configured by the program to cater to different resolutions.
Besides the export type, you can set other parameters, including the frame rate, bit rate, etc.
When you have completed the settings, you can save the favorite settings in the Profile box.


3. Convert
Click on the Convert tab, and you can proceed to encode the desired DVD file. Then you can put the video on your DVD and enjoy it on TV.
dude_xyx
thunderfish this Moyea FLV to Video Converter Pro is not a free one, is it ? whats the best free one which can download not only from youtube but also from other video sites ?
thunderfish
yes, moyea flv to video converter is not free, but u can have a free trial, no time limited, it can not only download flv from youtube, but also from google video, myspace, and other websites.
if you want the free converter, supper works well, but sometimes it is weired in the end of my video, you can also use some online ones, such as http://www.convertdirect.com
razorfish
try TubeLeecher.com
Works great

If you're on a mac, Tooble is a really good one. its pretty new. it downloads and converts automatically to an iPod compatible mp4 format. Also its free.

I think it's very easy to download flv file from Youtube.
The program called "Iinternet Download Manager (IDM) " can do that ^^
Let allow this pic


And u can open that file (*.flv file) with "K-Lite Codec Pack" - the code pack which can open all of media file type ^^
Home : www.free-codes.com
link download : http://ftp.freenet.de/pub/filepilot/windows/multimedia/video/k-lite_codec_pack/klcodec370f.exe
Sunny
Well normally one would want to save a file after watching, so why download it again? when its already there in your temp internet folder, you just have to copy, paste ...change extension to .flv and play in VLC media player works fine.
ammonkc
You can usually get the url for the flv file from the activity window of most browsers.

Hmm didn't think about it before but worth to try. how do you find the fine in Temp ?
CrimsonStrange
How to find a .flv file in your Windows cache/Temporary Internet Files folder:

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Inside the above folder, you should see some folders named with random letters & numbers.

Whatever you've downloaded from the 'net or looked at on a webpage should be in those folders.

My method for finding a particular file you've downloaded is to sort all of the files in those individual folders by certain criteria, depending on what you're looking for.

If you're looking for videos, programs or MP3's, they're obviously gonna be pretty large in filesize.
So, sort by size.

Idea --> Right-click in a Windows Explorer folder --> "Arrange Icons" --> by Size

If you were paying attention to the time when you were downloading a file and have multiple files in multiple folders with the same name and closely related in size, (ex. YouTube videos are all named "getvideo(1), getvideo(2), etc... with no file extension), then sort by date.

The easiest way to change the sorting method in a folder is to view all of the files in a folder using the "Details" view.

Idea ---> In a Windows Explorer folder, on the top toolbar, go up to "View" --> Details


Once you're sure you've got the file you want, copy & paste it on the Desktop so it's easy for you to work with it.

Make sure you've got Windows Explorer set to display file extensions, so you'll know what you're adding or changing.


Idea ---> In a Windows Explorer folder, on the top toolbar, go up to "Tools" --> Folder Options --> View tab --> Uncheck the box that says "Hide file extensions for known file types."


Arrow A super-easy way to show or hide a file's extension is by installing this handy-dandy Shell Extension known as FileExtToggle (119k)

Then there's also the same super-easy way of showing or hiding hidden files with HiddenFilesToggle (119k)



After all of that, you've just got to add/change the file extension of those files that you KNOW are videos to .flv Wink
fadirocks
dude why are you converting flv to anything?
I just use Media Player Classic to play them (under package of CCCP)

Thats what I use, and its never failed me. Also VLC works very nicley as a trans-coder to convert the FLV file to mpeg so other people can view it more easily.

If you need to Media Convert works very nicely for converting FLV files to other formats too.
ginny2689
you can download the videos .

Only you need is to put the address of the video which you want to download in this website
http://vixy.net .This website is good because it will allow u download the file in avi,mov,mp3,3gp,mp3(audio only) format.
Also there is a software called orbit by which you can grab the videos .To download it go to
http://www.orbitdownloader.com/ .This software is free.
To grab the video you have to switch on grab++ before watching that particular video.
It will automatically grab the link of that video.
FlyingYouri
I think tihs is one of the best YouTube downloader: http://convertyoutube.com/ .

Bump.
It's not limited too just youTube either. When it light's up and spins in a circle, download away!
l've used this with megavideo, some japanese hosting sites, youtube, dailymotion. It even gives a list what will work with, just press and it boosts up a list you can use. Also let me spread too other sites that l didn't know existed. Highly recommend!
FireFox + DownloadHelper
VLC
CCleaner cleans garbage/registry errors out of the Windows.
And if you need too convert, format factory.
Pretty much the first things l install and run every new machine.
shenyl
For me it has to be with Firefox download helper add-on.

This add-on to firefox allows downloading and also conversion.

This has been my choice for the last 2 years.

Only draw back is that it only runs in Firefox.
ProwerBot
um....yeah... who says good youtube downloaders have to be on your computer?


try http://mediaconverter.org

it can download youtube files and export them to many formats. you can also convert formats of files on the web or on your computer.
shenyl
Thanks to ProwerBot.

The site looks great, have not tried it yet - is it free?

Any limitations - such as must post to forum to keep account alive?

Oh I got mixed up with Frihost.

Just kidding and earn some extra points to be keep active.

Thanks.

nice link

Internet Download Manager i think also better to download tube files ?
ownjoouk
On android phones a great downloader is TubeMate. It can be found on the Amazon app store.
Blummer
Internet download manager (for Windows). It is not free, but it integrates a very good downloader into the browser. And it even accelerates the download speed (just a bit, but the speed difference is slightly good).

I am using http://youtubedownloader.org/ but on some music is the quality very poor.

I have used clipconverter.cc many times to download music from YouTube videos, but it also doubles as a video downloader. It's extremely versatile, letting crop which section of the video you want. I've always been curious how these websites work, and which one is really giving you the highest quality possible from a raw YouTube link. I've always been into high fidelity
fercon94
youtubeinmp4.com/ ----> is great!!!
Marcuzzo
if the youtube player is not HTML5 you can simply Save the webpage or copy the mp4 from the cached page, but since we're getting HTML5 player force-fed this option is no longer available.

I've been using this one lately: https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/ and I'm quite happy with it.
Arrogant
Currently I have been using 2 firefox plugins to do that
1. Flash and Video Download: grabs flash videos.
2. DownThenAll: best download manager I have found.

Try www.clipconverter.cc it's a very good dowloader, it gives you the possibility of dowloading in several formats as .mp4 .avi or even mp3 if you want to convert the media. and th most inportant thing is that it dowload very long videos such as movies and so on. Very Happy
Da Rossa
Works perfectly for me the 1-click video downloader Firefox expansion. I can choose between a number of formats and picture sizes for the downloaded video from youtube.
rusher
I highly recommend youtube-dl.
Best I ever used.[/url]
aviaryan
Youtube-dl is the very best .
https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/

The above is a command-line application. The gui version is good as well.
