YouTube is undoubtedly the most preferred website to share and watch favorite videos. Most users prefer to watch the videos online, while a few others like me would like to download them so that they can be saved and retained. Well, if you are one among those few who would like to download the videos from YouTube, then here is a way to do that.
In fact, there are many ways to download videos from YouTube, but here in this post, I would like to share with you one of the easiest way to do that. This can be done as follows:
- Download and install the latest version of Internet Download Manager.
Internet Download Manager is a great add-on for your web browser which increases the download speed by 5 times. It also helps you to pause/resume and schedule your downloads. It has got a great interface and is user friendly. It works with most of the browsers including IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
- After you complete the installation, just open your browser and start searching for your favorite YouTube video. You will see the download button on top of the video using which you can download it instantly.
- Click on the “Download this Video” button to download the video onto your computer. The downloaded video will be in the flash video format (.flv).
- You can use VLC Player to play the downloaded video or use SUPER to convert it to your desired format.
By using this trick, along with the YouTube videos, you can even download almost any buffering content on the Internet including videos from MySpace and Google. I hope you like this small post. Don’t forget to pass your comments. Enjoy 🙂
