Download youtube files

This type of message i too get. I dont know the cause of that, but actually there is a FLV file which the downloader refuses to download. For this My remedy is just un install and re- install the downloader software. It will download any file...Cheers

Re: Download youtube files

You can get .flv files from your browser cache and convert them to whatever format with some reasonable software.

Just start playing the video, wait for it to load completely. Then peek into the browser's cache, look for the most recently changed file of bigger size. Copy it off to other folder, you may need to rename the file then (from Firefox). Then you may use your favorite transcoding software to convert it offline. Converting them hurts the already bad quality, however. Why not play the .flv directly with ie. VLC instead?

Re: Download youtube filesnot in *.flv ?

medpiper - is a windows package for downloading youtube flv files
and convert it into mpeg , so that any player can be used for seeing.

available at:
https://code.google.com/p/medpiper/downloads/list

the 'setup.exe' is the downloader for youtube flvs.

Use orbit downloader, the best i have seen. When you play any video in internet, orbit downloader will place it helpbar on the screen of the playing video. just click that and say download. Works very effectively

1-Click YouTube Video Downloader extension and Firefox browser. That's by far the easiest.

Using cashed file is a free way but so messy.
I use IDM it is really great.

If you want to download videos from Youtube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, then you can use Netvideo hunter, it is an FireFox Add-on. If you want to convert the format of the video which you downloaded then you can use any converter online. I always use Netvideo hunter to download video and then convert it into 3GP format for my mobile.
