Saving YouTube videos / converting them to DVD files



Saving YouTube videos / converting them to DVD files

Postby peterchecksfield » Tue Jul 31, 2007 2:59 pm

To save YouTube (or MySpace, etc) videos onto your computer I suggest you use this:

http://keepvid.com/

And try this if you want to convert them into files for DVDs:

http://www.dvdflick.net/

Then simply burn using Nero or similar (you don't have to make a menu, they'll play perfectly fine without one).


There's other ways, but I find the above are simplest. :D

There's several excellent programmes out there & it's easy to do...but not so easy to download the above clip it seems (I also asked on a Hollies forum!). Anyone?

looks like a flash video if you are using firefox there are several add ons you can use do a search for 'video downloader' and see which you prefer to use. I wil try later if you get no luck.

It appears to be protected by Dcomsoft swf protector as I tried this tip http://www.funponsel.com/blog/internet/using-firefox-to-save-any-movieflash-from-website-to-your-computer.html and could only get a protected dcomsoft banner.

A friend managed to download the Graham Nash interview for me by using DownloadHelper (a FireFox plugin) - strange, because that didn't work for me (though it works on YouTube!). :shock:

Postby Dirk B. » Sun Jul 25, 2010 7:36 pm

I'm using Any Video Converter to download Youtube videos. Since last thursday there is a change at youtube, so that downloading is no more possible. Other programms like Downloadhelper etc. either don't work anymore!!! What about your programms? Do they still work?

If you use Firfox as your browser then both DownloadHelper & NetVideoHunter still work fine (I've just tested them!). I particularly like NetVideoHunter, as this seems able to capture videos from anywhere.

Meanwhile I have updated the Any Video Converter and it works fine again. There's just one problem I have from time to time - with this and also other programs:
If, for instance, I download these clips from Marshall Lytle,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKcb8IcOl84
afterwards the clips on my pc play on extremely fast, while the audio keeps playing at normal speed - and the clip ends after only about 30 seconds.
That's a problem I only have with few YouTube clips. Does anyone know the reason for this phenomenon?
