Ok it can"t be that hard. When you look at something on Utube; how do you save it? Up on the top left corner in the tool bar is {File} but it only saves the page not the actual little program. There have been a lot of neat videos but how do you save them? I know a bunch of you folks should know. Do you need to join up or something? Thanks much Jeffcat

Most, but not all, of the ones I watch, have a DOWNLOAD box.I think this is a part of REALPLAYER. If you don't have realplayer, it is a free program.

Depending on what browser you use there are add ons to do just that. One I have for Firefox is Download Helper. Whenever you are on a page with a video the little icon starts rotating indicating that you can save the video. I think part of You Tube's terms of service dictate that you're not supposed to be downloading and saving their videos.

Download the free version of Realplayer and install it. Then you will have a tab on the upper right of the Youtube screen to save the video you are watching. It doesn't show until you put the cursor over it.

I've saved a bunch of my favorite YouTube videos by just adding them to my Favorites. I certainly don't have any special programs to do it. I think I run Windows 7 and whatever version of Internet Explorer would be the same vintage. I made a YouTube folder in Favorites and when I want to save a YouTube video I save it to that folder the way I save any other site. It must work because I go back and watch them regularly.

If there's some reason that doesn't work for you, you could just copy the addresses and paste them to a folder in Word, or whatever word processor you use, then reverse the process to watch them. It wouldn't be quite as convenient as having them in your Favorites, but it would be easy to do.

By doing that you are only saving a link to the website, not the actual video. If the user took the video down for some reason then you would not be able to watch it again. If you actually save it then you will be able to watch it or put it on a portable device etc. and watch it even when you are not connected to the internet. Same with what Stan is describing.

There is no "legitimate" way to download youtube videos to your computer, provided by youtube.

It protects them from copyright infringement a-la the old NAPSTER fiasco.

If you want to save the videos to your computer you need a separate utility, like RealPlayer.

The problem with RealPlayer is that Youtube is constantly trying to block it from being able to download videos. If you have RealPlayer installed as a plugin on your browser, eventually Youtube will stop working. Then you have to uninstall RealPlayer and wait until they come out with a new version that gets around what Youtube blocked.

It's a constant game of cat and mouse, and I got sick of it. The videos are simply not that valuable to me.

Dave,

That's true, but Inno is making a point that's worth noting. If what you save is the address rather than the actual video, as your method and my method does, than you don't have the video once there's no address leading to it anymore. It won't do you any good to have the name of the video or its address to search YouTube for it if it isn't on YouTube any more. But if you have some way of saving the video itself, then it doesn't matter if it's removed from YouTube.

This point was driven home to me yesterday after my previous response to this topic. I went to the folder containing YouTube videos in my Favorites and clicked on one to see what I could tell about it. What I could tell was that it had been removed from YouTube and all that happened when I clicked on it was that I got an error message. I thought that was pretty strong confirmation of Inno's point.

Stan
