How to save youtube videos (and upload them elsewhere)

How to save youtube videos (and upload them elsewhere)

After David Zucker's political ad was flagged on youtube.com, some of you asked how to download youtube videos to watch elsewhere. These are instructions for doing so. If you know an easier or more direct method, please post.

1) Copy the url from the youtube page. (I searched for freerepublic to find a worthy sample)

2) Go to http://keepvid.com and paste the youtube url in the space provided

3) Save file by clicking download (part A), then clicking "download link" (part B). Save it

as an .flv extension

4) Download cinemaforge (It's free software you can find online) or similar software.

5) With cinemaforge, convert .flv file to something playable for video sharing websites (wmv, mpeg, etc)

6) Click encode. Your new video is now the proper format for video sharing sites.

7) Upload to another website. (zippyvideos, tinypic, mediamax)

For the linux users among us, I have two bash scripts that will do the same thing. One script DL's the video into a flv format, and the other converts it to a avi file.

If you want them, FRmail me.

"I feel that the idea that doing a little research to make sure one is in fact not breaking the law isn't too much to ask to mention in a thread like this."

There are mac viruses you know, and the reason there arent that many is b/c its foolish to make one. Why infect 3-4% of the computing population when you can hit 90% with a windows virus?

Again, Google bought You Tube and thus is the reason for the censorship. You will see many vidoes on You Tube with conservative opinions and that bash leftists start to get this kind of attention.

Basically, don't go to You Tube except to pilfer the stuff you like and post it somewhere else.

What mac viruses for OSX or higher exist? BTW the core of OSX is BSD the same OS that runs the DNS servers for the Internet, if you wanted to affect 100% of Internet users you only have to take that out..

I dont recall them off the top of my head, but they are out there. THere is nothing special about a mac that prevents it from being suceptible to a virus. It's a complete myth that macintoshes are immune from viruses.

You forget that most DNS servers are far more secure than your average machine and those users who maintain it aren't dumb like your average computer user who would get that virus.

The inability of people to properelly classify malware does not mean mac is susiptable to viruses.

The first is a worm, not a virus.

The Second is a Trojan, not a virus.

If you're comfortable with that, that's fine by me. I see no proof that this falls under any Fair Use provision, if we're talking about copyrighted material, and it looks like there's an interested party who disagrees with you.

http://business.guardian.co.uk/story/0,,1921154,00.html

I think they'll work out a deal, but until then, I think that a lot of YouTube users are uploading, viewing, and downloading, content without the authorization of the copyright holders. That is to say, they're watching a lot more music videos than homemade stupid pet tricks (I'd be happy to be wrong about that, so if someone knows the opposite to be true, feel free to correct me). And now it's become possible to download the stuff easily.

Which is something I've seen Freepers denounce as theft.

Thank you.

"Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet."

Mark Twain

Twain's words resonate loudly in the internet age. One thing that must be kept in mind when considering content protection in the internet age is the drastic devaluation of content because distribution costs have retreated almost to zero. Content providers, and copyright legal eagles, must construct a new business model to deal with this reality.
