Go click here and paste the video url into the box. Remember that these videos are saved in .flv format, so you either need an flv player (which you can get for free)or video conversion software. Some is free, some is shareware and some is quite expensive for what you want. Google for both player and software.
I tried both solutions but I must have done something daft in each case. With the first suggestion nothing was saved. With the second suggestion I downloaded an .flv converter as recommended and then downloaded the video. The result was a file/folder? called get_video which will not open or yield any useful information when right click then click properties. Please can you advise me?
It is actually on the help section of Savetube, click here but it is easy to miss. When you go to save the video rename it and end the name in .flv This is done in the name box, leave the file type (document) alone. This should then save the file as newname.flv which you can use the flv player to view the video. I purchased a nifty wee programme from click here called AVS Video Converter 5.5 which copes with just about every conversion that I want. However, I paid for it and there are freebies around. Good Luck!
I've just used click here to convert a video from You Tube for the first time. In this link there's a choice of format to convert the YouTube .flv file to.
At first I was beginning to think this was not going to work. First came failures connecting to the Server, 'then You Tube is Busy'. Finally it did work and my video clip was converted to .avi, downloaded and saved.
Playback in Windows Media Player was fine, as intended.
many thanks all of you for the various solutions, all were most helpful, they all work, and are printed out for my own instruction manual. Megat193: the instructions on You tube Help are excellent, thanks for pointing me in that direction.
