Things You'll Need

  • VLC player or any other flv player
Try this,
1. Open windows explorer and go to Tools>FolderOptions>View and select the options "Show hidden files and folders" and de-select "Hide protected Operating system files"
2. Open "My Computer" open "Documents and Settings" directory(mostly in C drive) and open the directory corrseponds to your User name.
3. Open Local Settings>Temporary Internet Files> directory
4. Delete all the files in this directory(You can actually avoid this step, this step is just to make your job easy, to easily identify the file which we have to download)
5. Open youtube.com website and open the video you want to save.
6. Play the complete video once
7. Go to the "Temporary Internet Files" directory, You can see many files that are part of the webpages you opened recently saved in this directory.
8. Copy the entire directory to Desktop or some other location as your search will be eazy if the directory is copied to new location.
9. Open the new directory, and check each files. The video file you are looking for will be in size of MB's(depends on the lenght of video)and with an extension ".flv"
10. Open all the shortlisted files with a flv player.

I'm using a cool video download software YouTube Robot which is very convenient and fast.With this you can forget about recharging your player with fresh movies and just take care of your business, while the software automatically checks your favorite video sites for new movies, downloads and transfers them to your MP4 or mobile phones.

My boy-friend presented to me this tool. I am grateful him for it. Now we can share the best clips with
Movisherlock. He sent me a link for the cool song of Kesha. I just save this clip with Moviesherlock and
enjoy together on the beach.
