Downloading YouTube Videos

By Amanda Richards, Interactive Multimedia Lab Assistant

****If you had read this post before you might have noticed that we had written an article mainly on the website service called Dirpy.  We found out last night that yesterday, November 8,  Dirpy made an announcement that they are discontinuing their services due to the lack of resources to continue improving and growing Dirpy in the manner that their customers deserve.  In the article before we had mentioned some other services that allow you to download YouTube videos so we will briefly highlight those below.****

As mentioned in the original article, here are a few other ways that you can download and save YouTube Videos:

  • Firefox Add-On “Easy YouTube Video Downloader”
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10137/

    This is an add-on that can be downloaded for Firefox that allows the user to download YouTube videos FLV, 3GP, MP3, MP4, HD and 1080 Full-HD.  Once the add-on is downloaded and installed in the browser you simply visit a YouTube video page and click on the direct download  button to start downloading the video in any of the formats listed above.

  • Zamzar.com
    http://www.zamzar.com/

    Zamzar supports conversion of files from links on the internet (URLs) as well as from your computer – simply enter the link to your file into the “URL box” in “Step 1″ on our URL conversion page … or use the Zamzar web browser button to make converting even easier.  Zamzar also supports the download and conversion of videos from a range of popular video sharing websites (Youtube, Google Video, Blip.tv, TeacherTube, MySpace, Apple Trailers) – simply enter the URL of the video you want to convert.

  • SaveTubeVideo (For Windows Only)
