.flv is a lossy format, meaning if you manage to convert it to MPG, WMV, AVI... not only you get a bigger filesize for nothing, the quality on most cases worsens even on a high bitrate, try to avoid converting flv to anything, instead, burn it directly to a supporting dvd player\portable player, portable is recommended because you can connect the device to a bigger screen and watch it there (haven't really tried it, so can't tell you the end quality though)

It's funny, when you play the Youtube video in windows, it is cached somewhere (I forget) and the filesystem puts a lock on it so you can't open/copy it.

But in Linux, the video is cached in /tmp and you can freely open and copy it it at any point while the video page is open.

The file is deleted the second you close the Youtube tab. The only way around it is to use a file unlocker.

Then don't close the tab.

1) Open Youtube and your desired video.
2) Wait until the entire video is downloaded.
Open your browser's cache and search for the largest file. I think in most browsers that's a .flv file, in Opera it's a .tmp file.
3) Copy it to another folder and rename it to filename.flv

Done.

WotL: It's better to sort by modified date, and the files usually start with fla*

In Firefox & Chrome (win7), the videos are cached in %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp, in IE8 the files are cached in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low. You can't do anything with the files without a file unlocking tool.

There might be a difference if XP is used though.

The issue is OS independent. I have both 7 and XP running and it happens with both. The point is that the browser is writing to that file and because of that prevents other programs to open it.
There are so many downloading tools available that aren't to be trusted - especially youtube downloaders. I prefer to do it manually, it's easy if you know how to.

If you'd unlock the file in the temp dir, your browser might give errors because it can't access it anymore.
It might not be a problem but it's not really necessary to force it; copying can't be restricted, and it's safer. That way the file doesn't get deleted after you close the tab and it's accessible by other programs.

Unlocker is a great tool and one of the programs I install on a new machine by default, but unlocking files that are in use always has a risk.

I was curious, so I got Youtube downloader from CNET. It gives you an MP4. I put that into Nero and it makes a DVD fine. The Youtube downloader does by default install the dread Yahoo toolbar by default, so you should uncheck it.

http://download.cnet.com/YouTube-Dow...-10647340.html

You need an H264 codec too.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/x264vfw/

and probably:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout/

for the aac codec.

You can save the flv files from the temporary file folders and you can also use the addons if you are using Mozilla firefox. Just add an add-on named 1clickyoutube downloader to download the videos easily.

You can download the Youtube video by copying the path of that video from the URL and paste it to the Download page of the savevideodownload.com. Then you should change the extension of that file to .flv when save it to your computer. You need to use the FLV player to play that video and you can convert it to other format by using FLV converter.

I have mplayerclassic for video on my new desktop plays videos very well, but I downloaded it on my friends old xp machine and it won't play Mpeg4. If i get say divx codec, or any other mpger codec where does it go. Into player folder or just programs. Sorry for the ignorance. Thanks

Thank You for the links, DJ EGG, I will try it with keep-tube.
Yes, MP4-files would be better for me than the FLV-files, which I have downloaded with the Real Player (and much better than the FLV-files, which I have downloaded with the "Webclip to mp3 Konverter" to get the MP3-files). I think, I would have a better video-quality and I could give tags to MP4-files.
I control in my Winamp also my own created WMV-Videos (I use WAV-files for my music-videos) before uploading to YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/user/Sternenmaschinebine
The other YouTube-user have such nice music-videos, now I want the better quality... :-)
Have a Happy New Year 2011!!!

Okay,
I have made some tests to see, how different file-types work. I have converted some files. I can not give tags to "MPEG2" or "HD MPEG4"...
I have only audio of "HD MPEG4" and I have very distorted sounds of "MPEG2", but "HD WMV" works very fine (I have tagged them already in the folder and I have put pictures with the album-names already into the folder before playing). I can also play FLV (but not give tags to these files). My own created WMV-files are in 4:3 and 16:9. Why I can not play AVI, that is not important for me (I have only less short files in AVI, good enough for imports into the Windows Movie Maker etc.)...
I will make new and other tests very soon, "Aneesoft" seems to be also an option...
I have lost so much YouTube-favourites in my YouTube-collection of my channel in the last months, but "Only-One-Picture-Videos" are not so interesting for me. In this case I play my MP3-files and I watch Milkdrop in Full HD Widescreen (with very good headphones at full volume)...

Divx or ffdshow.

Your best bet is to use videolan. The video for windows codec system is a bit twitchy. It's best not to load codecs if you can possibly avoid it. Videolan has it's own internal codecs and doesn't get in the system registry. It plays anything. It even works on really old PC's, linux and macs.

I would be really leery of codec packs in general. I've known them to contain trojans and malware. Avoid them. If you must, use ffdshow and only turn on the codecs you are going to be using. If you aren't making videos, there is no reason that you shouldn't just use videolan and save yourself a possible hassle.

http://videolan.org
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow/

Only take these from the official sites.

I have only audio of "HD MPEG4"
Try playing it with videolan. If your computer is old (like 2006) , it isn't gonna like HD. I have a DVR computer which is an Athlon 3800X2 with 2 gigs of ram. 7600GS video card. It will play MPEG2 HD transport streams (ATSC HDTV) and Bluray. Divx and H264 are pretty dicey at HD resolution. H264 is worse. These high compression codecs are a lot more compute expensive than MPEG2.

For the most part, I see people encoding 1080i or 720p and not accounting for enough bitrate. This means what would be HD is so compressed it looks ugly. 720p streaming is probably gonna take 3mbps and no matter what your local ISP says your bandwidth is, it's not gonna get through the backbones at that speed.... at least not reliably.

I think that's why Crackle gave up on 720p.

Thank You for the idea with videolan.
But four media player? I have already three: Windows Media Player, Real Player and Winamp. Okay, I will think about videolan, maybe I could download it. But I don't want to have a fifth media player, I don't want to install iTunes and I never want to install foobar2000, because I hate the icon and I don't like the layout of this player...
I love to play my videos in my Winamp (and to create my own music-videos with my Winamp), and I want to give tags and ratings to my audio- and video-files, that is very important for me. I do this already outside of my Winamp. I have decided to use WMV, MP3 and WMA (also because I scrobble my audio-tracks to my Last.fm-profile during the playing in my Winamp). I want to keep also my (with the Real Player) downloaded FLV-files. And I use as audio for my own creations at first WAV (during composing and making my music-videos), before I convert them also to MP3 (into further sub-folders, where I also place already JPEG-pictures with the right album-names and the name "cover")...
I am very sure, that the very good music-videos of my friends in YouTube will not be removed very soon. My lost favourites were "Only-One-Picture-Videos", and I never want to create an "Only-One-Picture-Video". And the live-videos of my most faourited artist have mostly already a bad quality in YouTube, 720p will not help anymore in this case...
As an artist I finally want to compose my next track (in WAV) and I want to create my next " -video "...
PS, if somebody does not know, what a " -video " is, then You can take a look to my playlists and my newer favourites in my YouTube-Channel...

Eww, Real player!
Seriously I would ditch that tripe in a heart beat.
VLC or mplayer (with a frontend such as smplayer) will wipe the floor with anything else.

Anyway, if you'd rather go down the lines of 'jack of all trades' then why not give this winamp plugin a try: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=319968
Basically if you set it up fully (Effort required) then you'll be able to make use of ffmpeg, which can handle pretty much anything thrown at it.

And I have Realtek High Definition Audio and NVIDIA GeForce GT 230 (I hope, that I have all the details complete now). I have looked into the "Control Panel"...
Wow, I have discovered further features: Why not changing the settings in "Hardware and Sound", in "AutoPlay", for "Audio CD" and "DVD Movie"?...
And it would "rock" for me...
