Easily Download YouTube Movies

UPDATE:  Sorry, as of Summer 2010, this method no longer works.  YouTube has changed the way that their videos are accessed. I’ll continue to keep an eye on this though.

 

This is perhaps the easiest, fastest, and easiest to setup way to download YouTube movies.  It works in all browsers, Mac, and PC, and the resulting videos are already in the amazing MP4 format that you can drop on your iPod.

All you have to do is copy this javascript and paste it into a bookmark.  When you’re on a Youtube page, click this bookmark, and the movie will download.  Have fun!

javascript:if(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/)){document.location.href=’http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt=’+(isHDAvailable?’22’:’18’)+’&video_id=’+swfArgs[‘video_id’]+’&t=’+swfArgs[‘t’]}

In High Gear….
