I have been using the firefox extension Download Helper to download videos from youtube for the past few years. However, it has stopped working on youtube - other sites work fine. I installed a couple of other extensions, such as Download Flash and Video, Flash Video Download, and 1-Click Youtube Video Download to no avail.
get-flash-videos is a command line utility that let's you download videos from flash based sites.
To install it on Arch Linux you can use yaourt
First install a dependency.
sudo pacman -Sy git
YouTube is the most popular video sharing site – or I can say it has videos about everything. When you’re watching videos on YouTube (Suppose You’re using Ubuntu 11.10) and some of them are such videos that you watch often – repeatedly, in that case you might want to download/save it to your computer’s hard drive.
No videos can be streamed throughout the OS. I am on CM and neither YouTube nor Facebook nor any other videos seem to be streaming. I tried all popular players including the Android one but all say 'can't play this video'. I use tubemate to download them but that's too frustrating. Please help.
I used to be able to download YouTube Videos without any issues and then burn them onto DVDs in DVD Video format. Now, however, there are a couple of videos that I wanted to download and make DVDs of them but I'm having all sorts of problems. At first I couldn't download the videos with audio. This is not an issue any more.
