How to Download Youtube Videos

keep tubeDo you sometimes wish you could watch those funny Youtube videos but you don’t have an Internet connection? Or concerts and video clips of your favorite band? I have never downloaded any clips from Youtube, but I was still curious about how this can be done, since there is no download link. I just assumed it was impossible. That is, until I discovered several tools that let you do this.

Here are some that I found:

KeepVid – Simply add this tool to your favorites. When you watch a Youtube video, just click the Keep It  button to save.

SaveTube – Just copy the YouTube video URL, paste into the box and press GO. This tool is also suitable for downloads of high definition videos.

Savevid – With savevid you can download videos from most streaming video sites. You can download videos from Youtube, Google Videos, Metacafe and more in FLV, AVI, MOV, MPG or WMV formats.

Keep-tube – This popular tool lets you save in several ways: by using the Keep Tube bookmarklet, a Firefox browser add-on, via direct download and by copying and pasting the download link on the Keep Tube Web site. For more information, please go here. You can also use this tool to download videos from CollegeHumor, Facebook, Google Video and Metacafe. (Thanks to Pinoy PC Tips for bringing this to my attention). According to Pinoy PC Tips, you should use MP4 format when you download videos, and choose the highest resolution possible.

There are a few more websites that offer this service, but I listed the ones that are simple to use.
