Thumbs up Download and save youtube video to your G1

Here is a cool trick to save videos to your G1.
If you use firefox web browser you will need to download a plugin called download helper.
Now you go to youtube and find a video you like.
then wait for it to load.
then when you select download helper in the top right corner you select from dropdown menu the file name of video followed by .flv.
when you download the .flv file then i use xvidforpsp and convert the .flv to mp4 ot h.264 and then copy it to the G1 memory card and tada you just saved the youtube video for playback to your G1 to play at anytime and save without having to find it again.

1) Use the Youtube Broswer find and vid and click share.
2) Copy and paste the location, go to www.keepvid.com
3) Download in .mp4 format, use "Video Player" to play it.

Enjoy.

I do use Grabthat video. I tried it myself and it really works. Simple and fast.

All you have to do is log on to YouTube. Select the video you want to download. Copy the url on the Address bar. Go to Grabthatvideo.com and paste the YouTube url to the box. Press the download button to start downloading your video. Save the video to your desktop and you can change the filename. In order for you to transfer video files into your computer, you need to download flash player software at Grabthatvideo.com, and take note it is for FREE.

It is simple and fast. Besides, those softwares are FREE.

Goodluck!

there is a great app on the market that does this for you. It's called YouTube Downloader. Once installed, simply find the vid you want on the youtube website, click the link and you will be asked what you want to open the link with, select the downloader and it will download the vid straight to your sdcard.

Im about to make all of your lives 10 times easier. In order to download youtube vids without the need of apps on your PC or G1, simply type in "pwn" in the front of youtube. So in example,

Use that APP as well, but the issue here was to use a simple easy to remember method for use on your PC & G1 .

It was simple for me to start because of a couple of network errors ... I believe ..

The best way of downloading a Youtube vid to your computer is creating a bookmark pointing at

Code:
javascript:if (document.getElementById('download-youtube-video')==null && !!(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/))) {var yt_mp4_path='http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt=18&video_id='+swfArgs['video_id']+'&t='+swfArgs['t']; var div_embed=document.getElementById('watch-embed-div');div_embed.innerHTML=div_embed.innerHTML+'<br /> <span id=\'download-youtube-video\'><a href=\''+yt_mp4_path+'\'>Download as MP4</a> (click and save)</span>';}void(0);
That will add a download link at the bottom of the description box, if clicked while you're on the video site.

If your using firefox just download "Download Helper" from there Add-ons page. After that your all set. Download all allows you to download the mp4. version of the you tube video you are watching (if it has one).

to do so:

Look on your address bar, there should be an icon with three colored circles on it. click on the tiny little arrow next to it. A drop down menu will appear with the options to download the flv. or mp4 versions.

example..

tiestoliveatWMC.flv is the flv version.
tiestoliveatWMC [18] is the mp4 high quality version at 420x320 res.
tiestoliveatWMC [22] is the mp4 high quality version at 720x??? res. and so forth.

I usually download the [18] version. Best quality for the phone and the sizes are roughly around 15 to 30 megs.

woo woo!!! =)

Is there a media player that will play the .flv files directly? Since the .flv is a smaller file than and mp4, would be nice to just download the video without the need for conversion.

Yeah, Firefox add-ons. Video Download helper is a good firefox add-ons to download online videos.
For free downlaod Youtube video, and there is much more to share:
1. Try Enolsoft Free YouTube downloader that 100% free download and manage YouTube videos.
2. Use online websites such as KeepVid.com, SaveVid.com.

What is official YouTube downloader? Why can it be called official?
I just use a YouTube Video Recorder to download YouTube videos and I have much success with it, I can open several webpage with videos and it will download videos from then at same time. Moreover, the recorded videos are at excellent quality as original videos online.
