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.

Some conservative needs to copy YOUTUBE and start their own.

"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."

Fair Use.

You're welcome.

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?
