You can paste the link Here (http://keepvid.com/). But then you'll need something else to convert it

Firefox Addon "Video DownloadHelper".

There is ALOT of different ways to do it. I'm sure you will get heaps of different answers here!

So are you both saying that I cannot download straight from You Tube? That I need a third party programme to do it? PJ

For HD videos, use YouTube Downloader HD (youtubedownloaderhd.com).

Did you want to download the audio only, or the complete video?

OK, I'm curious. Is this not a form of piracy.

I've always assumed it is not piracy, in the main. It IS associated with Google isnt it? So if it was illegal to d/l stuff, I would have thought that Google would say so. PJ

I have d/l You Tube Downloader hd. So as I understand it. You cannot d/l directtly from You Tube. I have to put the appropriate URL into the Downloader & go from there. When I have the video clip saved in My Videos, is it possible to copy the sound only directly from there? Or again, only thro a third party programme as suggested above? PJ

I'm quite sure that 98% of people don't care...its no different to recording TV.

Also PJ, if you use Greasemonkey (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748) addon in Firefox, you can install this (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/13333) script which adds a download button direct to youtube. It also has some other cool features.

You could download SUPER and convert the downloaded video to an mp3 (or what ever format you wanted to use) :thumbs:.

I use Format Factory. Its simple, has inbuilt options (PSP, Ipod, PS3, etc etc) also lets you pick exactly what you want and it does ALOT of formats! :thumbs:
