Search around the internet for "free youtube downloader." I haven't used them in a long time, so I can't name any right off. I seem to recall one that you entered the URL of the video on and it gave you a .mp4 download link.

Disclaimer: I'm not responsible if you download something that has a virus in it or if you find a program and download copyrighted content. Because you can freely view the video does not mean it isn't copyrighted.

would the youtube downloader also work on sites such as college humour or just youtube?


i was thinking about making a montage of some clips of the funniest vids ive seen and then uploading them. and i before i did that,i would of course ask permission. but i would like to try it out.

Yup and it will work on any embedded video, not just Youtube. And that's the problem with most of the video downloaders. A lot of them only work on Youtube because it's the most popular site. The only kind of clip Real won't download are DRM protected clips and a button will pop up at the top right hand corner of the clip and tell you if you can download it.
