    YouTube - How do I save a video to my hard drive?

    I found some guitar / piano lessons on YouTube and I want to save to my harddrive, with no URL link, so I can keep it in case they get deleted on YouTube.

    When I go to Save File, the menu lists it as a Web ARchive.MHT file with encoding Unicode UTH-8. Is this the best format to save on harddrive??

    Can I burn them to a CD / DVD to keep for future reference? Never done this before

    Thanks

    Yeah you can't save them directly.

    If you're using firefox and greasemonkey, there is a s cript that will let you download the .flv. I have no idea where to begin with IE.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    No, youtube doesn't delete videos. Users that post them might, however.

    Re: YouTube - How do I save a video to my hard drive?

    Youtube made it very difficult to download videos, manly because of the lawsuit issue. If they allowed everyone to download videos without checking every video before it goes online it could get messy. There are however programs that allow you to do just that, probably start with a google search and go from there.
