Kunai-jutsu brought to my attention that i should pass the message from the great spirit of the fox, The FIREFOX spread the wisdom of downloading videos from youtube.com
if you can already do it.. then, move along, nothing to see here :D

simple step-by-step
1. get mozilla Firefox 1.5 (if you haven't got one yet)
2. install video downloader plugin for mozilla
3. start leeching...
4. play your file with VLC media player / FLV player

step 1 - mozilla firefox 1.5
http://www.download.com/Mozilla-Firefox/3000-2356_4-10545919.html?tag=lst-0-1
easy step by step..just follow the prompt after downloading.. you'll be alright..

step 2 - videodownloader plugin
1.
http://www.download.com/VideoDownloader/3000-11745_4-10546006.html?tag=lst-0-1
click on the download link and save it somewhere..

2.
use 'open with' on the saved *.xpi file with mozilla..
this messagebox will pop up

just click "install now" and firefox will do everything for you..
restart your mozilla..

Step 3.. LEECHTIME!

before anything.. check the bottom right corner if the plugin is installed

see that film and diskette icon? that's the plugin

1. ok..open your firefox again..go to
http://youtube.com/

2.
search for whatever video you want to download..

3.
let the buffering finish.. you can actually click on the icon now but the "save as" dialogue won't pop up until the buffering is finished..
click on that film and diskette icon..
the video downloader window will pop up


speaking of which..if you haven't got VLC media player.. or you want a special player for the video you stole from youtube, click that FLV player link and follow whatever they prompt you.. personally, i like VLC...

4.
after the buffering is finished..the save as window will pop up


click save to disk..





and rename the file to whatever you want your filename to be.. but the extension have to be *.flv



and you're done :D the video is yours! now you can get that video of that girl you've been stalking

step 4.. playing the file

1.
get VLC media player here
http://www.videolan.org/

or
2.
convert it to video file.. but you have to go through another tutorial
http://forum.videohelp.com/viewtopic.php?t=259578

or this batch converter

I taught my gf how to do it and she's been leeching all of Cyril's magic video (who was that who created that thread about Cyril?)

i'm sticking with leeching visual kei and j-rock PVs, stand up comedies (Russell Peters!! :smile-big), funny stuffs and DOGS :D
is it weird for me to collect people's personal video of their dogs? or it's just my craving for dogs :D

woo.. with the link that s_cristal posted.. you just have to copy the url, paste it on the site, and they'll give you the download link.. :D

[br]Posted on: July 01, 2006, 10:07:24 PM_________________________________________________it is an advantage to internet explorer users.. you don't need to install anything..
but with mozilla, if you got everything installed.. you can just click and download.. no need to copy paste.. :D
