Salam,

I've been wondering - are there any trusted and safe programs available that assist an individual in downloading youtube video's? I've googled the question itself but come up with a thousand different websites offering programs - none of them i'm willing to download of course due to skepticism, malware, viruses, etc etc etc.

Suggestions or recommended programs?

Has Youtube changed something? When I download a video now, it plays once and then won't work again, or won't play without an internet connection. I haven't investigated which yet. I just know it doesn't work the same as it has for the past few years.

If you use Firefox; the extension, Ant Video Downloader works very well with Youtube videos.

Hey guys, a spammer revived a 2 1/2 year old thread. I'm pretty sure the OP has figured it out by now.

It's always been my understanding that as soon as somebody creates a program that downloads YouTube videos, YouTube quickly finds a way to defeat it. Which is why there is not an obvious, well-klnown, easy application.

CD encourages digging up old ass posts and bringing them up for some ridiculous reason so it'll probably get bumped in a few years anyway.

So my question isn't worth answering? (I wasn't the spammer that revived this thread by the way).

yeah... youtube keeps changing the flash format of their vids and the layout and everything. It's really annoying. I don't think there's a replay function on the YT viewer anymore. and before, with slow/throttled bandwidth wifi (like hotspots) you could download a good portion of the vid before viewing so it wouldn't stutter & freeze. Not any more.

Try keepvid.com if you want to download & save.
