Downloading YouTube movies
« on: 03/03/2009 09:00:28 »
How can I 'harvest' YouTube movies, some are easy I just enter the URL that accompanies them into DVDVideoSoft Free Studio and down they come, this works fine for the

http://www.youtube.com/ site but for many other sites such as.

http://soulmate.amusingvideos.net/ there seems to be no way to do it !

See if http://www.ant.com/toolbar/ works. But you need .FLV

The best one I have used is this:
http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/ It downloads and converts the file.

I would like to download videos such as this.

http://www.ft.com/cms/af1f4356-e399-11dc-8799-0000779fd2ac.html.

I have 'Ant.com' and 'DVDVideoSoft Free Studio' but neither are much help.

Oops, sorry I missed that.

Do you use firefox? If you do, then I wonder if this will work?

I have found an excellent program 'flashextract.exe' that works it's way thru your browser and sorts out all the Flash videos and allows you to view and download them.
They can be viewed in the IE8 browser or with VLC.
You can have it for free for 30 days then you must pay about $20.00.

I have evaluated about 6 different systems for downloading FLV video,s from newspapers etc, the best I have found is 'Moyea FLV Downloader' that also includes a viewer and a converter.
I have not tried the Firefox add on yet as I believe it is only for YouTube in which I am not very interested.
I also have 'ByteScout' but it is rather difficult to use.
