    ^ Thanks Mid, but has anyone a method that they use.

    I've just tried that "catchvideo" method, and 25 minutes later it is still trying to download a 1'37" video.

    KeepVid: Download and save any video from Youtube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, iFilm and more!

    Runs a Java applet which you have to click Run to work. Multiple video and audio formats. Does not work on all sites and some Youtube videos are protected but I haven't found many, mostly the official commercial ones.

    internet download manager....steal a torrent...(or pay for it)..by far the easiest way

    or

    http://www.getgosoft.com/download/.....which is free and doesn't need to be stolen

    they both use accelerators and are very rapid

    i have both on my machine


    IDM is the bollux

    but if it's only for youtube..getgo is very good

    Works perfectly. Just move the mouse over the video and an icon 'Download this video' appears.

    I'm trying this now, but i must be really dense.

    With mounting frustration i can feel a new pc coming on.
    It's only a matter of time before i smash the fucking thing into little pieces.
    Really, how hard can this shit be?

    Might need to upgrade Java on your machine.

    Also I have noticed that not all options for the downloads work as the source video is not always available in those formats.

    It has some bugs but I've been using it for years now.

    And with (free) Real Player you can also record music from your favorite station (if they have a realplayer stream available) and download it on your ipod.

    The easiest and best one available. The link to download will appear below the video on youtube's website and other video sites.
