My Ghetto Primer: How to save You Tube Video

Some say, that these sites will disappear in time, due to obvious copyright infringement issues. So, I've provided a quick primer on how you can download these videos, before they're gone forever.

1. Go to your favorite streaming video site. I like YouTube since it seems to have the greatest variety of clips, from classic skatevideos, to old commercials, to archived music videos, etc. Another one is Google Video. Copy the url/perma link now which is located right below the video you've chosen.

2. Now go to Jay Moya's handy site and proceed to copy-paste your video url in to the appropriate box. Hit the download button. Then, like magic, a link will appear at the top of the page. Right click and save the file. Now this is important.....rename the file extension when you save it. Change the extension .php to .flv.

For those who care .flv is a flash video file format.

3. Technically you now have the .flv video file saved to your computer, ready for viewing anytime you want. The main problem with .flv files, however, is that they are not widely used, except for in web applications.

Even just to play back the .flv you've just downloaded you will probably need to grab a special player. I highly recommend getting VLC Player. It has tons of built in codecs and can handle virtually any video file format you throw at it. Did I mention, it's also free?

4. So now you have this .flv file, what next? Well most people, at this point, convert these files to either mpeg or avi, mostly for the convienience and compatibility of these other formats. I'm not sure who would want to burn these to dvd, considering they are kind of low-res, but if you were inclined, it would require a conversion.

Alot of people have suggested I use Video Downloader at this point in the process, but I never got it to work (the application kept hanging in the conversion process). Perhaps, it will work for you.

I use and endorse Riva Flv Encoder. Check this tutorial on info on how to use it. Basically the program is for creating .flv files, but it's also capable of doing the opposite, which is what we're interested in. In a nutshell, just import your .flv in to the application, and then change your output extension to .avi. Make sure you have audio enabled checked, or you will have a silent film. Voila! Conversion takes a couple of minutes. Experiment with settings and go with whatever works best for you.

I've read you had problems with VDownloader. Can you please tell me what problems you had?

Reading comments about the program, I've seen there are people that had the same problem but they solved it downloading the program again (the copy they had was corrupted) :-)

Wow, thanks for reading the site. Kind of surprised you found it. Basically,the program seemed to do fine with downloading...but then in the conversion process, it got stuck. I waited over a 1/2 hour before I realized the process was frozen, and closed the application. If it is because of a corrupted version, please feel free to post an alternate download link...In theory VDownloader is alot easier to use, because it's all inclusive. Also, i'll be sure to re test the new version and post my findings on the blog. thanks!

VDownloader needs 2 files to work: VDownloader.exe and ffmpeg.exe, and both files have to be in the same folder.

Maybe you had a problem with ffmpeg, that is the module that "converts" the video. You can download the new version from here:

Unzip all the files to the same folder and run VDownloader.exe :-)

hey enrique,
i'm going to write a new post/review about vdownloader. it works like a charm, super fast..and I suspect my problem was not unzipping all of the files in to one folder. even though i installed ffmpeg. i was launching the vdownloader application itself from the desktop. Now, that they are all in the same folder..I must say that this is a much much easier process than my exhaustive 2 page long tutorial.

Thanks again!

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is something we cannot live without in this day and age, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
