Can I download YouTube video to a disk ? At work they have filters for a lot of sites, searches , words ect  on the desk top computers or network idk how they do it , can't open YouTube either EXCEPT  for some reason I could  for a few days until today , blocked again . Let me back up  . I was  searching info ( goggle )  on one of our trucks at work 2007 F450 w/6.0 , ( ok stop laughing )  that's having a long crank time on a hot engine . Found a great  Youtube that was great , even sent my boss the link , he couldn't open it , told him  supervisors  couldn't be trusted lol .  We  are getting a old laptop that the IT guys are taking the modem out , they don't trust us , to put pdf files and other info on . I'll have to down load , copy to a disk then load on the laptop .This way I can take the info right out to the vehicle instead of printing pages . If I can I'll just download YouTube at home and load my laptop at work .

Al, I haven't had to for years, but there was a time I did it reasonably often. I used Any Video Converter.

Here's the only way that I have done it but it doesn't always work:

1-watch video

2- open history, video in IE will show as videoplayback etc, etc and be one large file.  If it isn't working it will be a bunch of small files,

If it is one large file. I copy it to my desktop and rename it to blah, blah.flv  make sure you give it the .flv file extension when you rename it or it won't play.

,flv is a flash video file and will play with windows media player if you have the right codecs or find a flv player on the web.

I've got GT vids, gardening vids and some songs and even full concerts of some of my favorite artists on my pc.

Go to http://keepvid.com

 

Drag the box in the upper right corner to your toolbar.  Then while watching a Youtube video, click the "Keep it" button and it will give you a list of download file options.  Has worked well for me.

You posted in the middle of my writing above (had a kid come down for a potty break).  Try it.  I like it.

Al, get a video capture program open up your browser to youtube and the video you want.  Start the video capture program and then start the video.  When it is done just shut off the video and tell it to save it to a movie file and then you can watch it on any video player.

Sorry, I nodded off.
It will depend on what playback programs you have on both machines.
I will often use QuickTime player and aim for .mov, .avi, or .mp4

Al, most video players will play a .mov, .avi or an mp4. I believe mp4 will make the smallest file, so if you are transporting it to another computer at work that may be your best bet.  you may want to make a same file in each format and see which is the smallest just to make sure this old memory it correct.

Goto google, type "free studio" , you can port any YouTube URL directly to what video file you want, select the resolutions options at the same time.

I use it to rip kids videos to an android tablet for my daughter , useful on the road and in planes.

Hi Al, if you use the firefox browser, you can install an add-on called downloadhelper - the name is the program!

Maybe what I  will  have to find out is what format or program are on the work computers for playing back video before first ?  The way the filters are set they won't let us download any software ,but I know it played  the dvd that came with the Snap-On scan tool . This is getting  WAY HARDER then I thought lol
