I want to save YouTubes to hard disk, I have something called Flash decompiler which awesomly useful but I cann;t figure out how to rip the .FLV videos with sound out?

Also I saw mention of a ripper for the MMS: protocol as used with Windows media and found some commandline app that never worked,

I'm unable to stream any MMS: content due to my heavily modified XP Os (hacked)

Don't know if this will help.

It details how to obtain videos from You Tube and also lists some programs to convert said videos.

Additionally on there website they can take youtube and google video links to give you a download link, the super program converts FLV as you please.

Huge thanks guys, both worked perfectly. I used GreaseMonkey plus the addon script to rip the .FLV and that SUPER program works a treat for FLV coversions and direct MMS: ripping, I was able to watch the Telecom live webcast on Firday. :-)

I'd googled for hours and found little more that stupid pay programs and a website that offered to do it... for a fee..
The "programs" that most were selling read in the fine print that they are just "Ebooks"

I've well and truly scoured that YouTube site and now have streams of classic music videos which look just great on the screen of the ipod! and has been my source of entertainment on this week I have been extremely ill.
