Hi - I'd like to download a Y/T video.

I've been "bitten" by using software that contains malware and other nasties (even though I thought I'd done all the research necessary to ensure I was using something honourable)...

What's everyone's software-of-choice and what would you suggest?

TIA

Click2Flash is a plugin for Safari and I think Chrome too, this allows you to download YouTube videos. Otherwise you can use web services like KeepVid.

You don't need to download and install software to do this.

Thanks - I've almost got no hair left from pulling it out so often!

Using Chrome here (hahaah - I thought everyone used Chrome, lol).

You are required to install precisely zero software locally. This has been a free SaaS for some time.

Step 1: Pick any YouTube video you would like to download. I've made a likely selection for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfVsfOSbJY0

Step 2: Before the youtube and after the www. add the string: pwn (i.e. http://www.pwnyoutube.com/watch?v=kfVsfOSbJY0)

Step 3: Select any one of the number of video/audio download options.

Step 4: ???

Step 5: Profit!

@MaxLV - thank you!

I have to make a confession though ...must've been having a blonde moment...

I actually use Freemake heaps but didn't realise I could use it to upload URLs (dugh!) ...

I use it to convert files to WMV so they don't take forever and the next day to upload to Y/T ... talk about feel stupid for not realising it did what I wanted and I've had it all along.
