Update 2020: This post is now outdated and archived, but feel free to read it to remember what it was like. ?
Don’t you wish to download that nice video you saw on the Internet? Don’t you wish to watch it offline? Here are some ways.
KickYouTube is one way to download YouTube videos.Simply type ‘kick’ before ‘youtube.com’. For example, http://youtube.com/watch/?v=dMH0bHeiRNg becomes http://kickyoutube.com/watch/?v=dMH0bHeiRNg.
After you hit enter, you will be taken to a page, exactly the same as the original page, except there are download options at the top of it.
Simply click the video format you want, and then click ‘Go’, which is near the top right of th page. Your download would begin in a moment.
Fast video download
Alternately, you can use Applian’s Fast Video Download, a add-on for firefox. After you install it on firefox, it will be displayed at the bottom right. When you are on a YouTube video, just click on the icon, and the video will be downloaded, as an .flv format.
But… there’s more to this add-on – not only it downloads videos from YouTube, but also from DailyMotion, Google Video, and some more other video sites! It can save videos from Google Video in the .avi format, though.
When it detects multiple downloadable stuff on the page, out will come a window that shows the downloadable stuff, and lets you pick which ones you want to download. Pick the one that you think is the most probable one that you want to download.
(I was on www.miniclip.com, at a game called ‘Deep Freeze’. The most probable file that might be the game would be ‘deepfreeze.swf’.)
To play the game, simply right click the file in your folder, and click ‘Open With’. Pick any internet browser, and your game will be displayed there.
