HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY DOWNLOAD VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE AND OTHER EMBEDDED VIDEOS

Youtube has so many videos and while i type this post, more are being added. In fact by the time you read this post, hundreds if not thousands of new videos will have been added. While you may enjoy watching it straight online, you may also want to download/save it so that you can watch it later or show to someone else. The cost of going to the internet every time you want to watch your favourite video is therefore eliminated especially in a country like Nigeria where internet data subscription  is very expensive. Furthermore, with  the slow speed of most internet services, watching movies online can become unbearably frustrating as the video will buffer now and every other minute. There are various softwares that claim to do  the job of downloading videos from youtube such as: youtube video downloader, youtube hd video downloader, xilisoft youtube video converter, xilisoft youtube video downloader, etc

I have tried using a couple of them and out of experience i want to say the best way of downloading videos from Youtube is using internet download manager IDM (i personally use veresion 6.15). You can download all the flash embedded videos from almost any site with a click of a button. Yea, the flash videos are literally a click away.
After installing IDM, a "Download This Video" button pops up whenever you are watching a video anywhere in cyberspace (shown in the picture below).

Just click on the button to start downloading clips. It's as simple as that; you do not have to separately launch Internet Download Manager. What's more, you can choose to download a clip at any point during the video, and the scene will be captured from the start. The download will proceed in the background even if you pause or stop watching. And you can download more than one video at the same time. Another interesting thing about using IDM to download youtube videos is that it gives you multiple formats for you to choose your preferred choice as illustrated in the second picture below. Another thing i will like to say here is that since the videos can come as flv and 3gp which are not natively supported by windows media player, you should have another player like vlc media player. I particularly like vlc media player and the latest version comes with a feature that enables you to double the volume of your computer i.e raise it to 200%.

  3. Thanks for all the different options that you gave us. I thought I should also contribute my two cents to the conversation, so I prefer to use a software that's called Torch browser, which enables me to download videos, songs and torrents off any website, and it's very easy to use, that's why I like it so much. Hope that I helped a little :)

    1. Thanks for your contribution Marvin_o. Trully torch browser works but i believe IDM works better as it helps to accelerate the download, has support for various formats and supports multiple options. You'll enjoy it if you give it a try.
