Hi lenn_jandah!

Welcome to FixYa. How are you doing?

There are several online websites that allow you to enter the URL of the YouTube video you wish to save to your computer, and quickly get a link to download the file. Below is a short list of some of the more popular free websites:

Please do the following:

    Go to the YouTube video page and copy the URL of the video you wish to save. For example, below is a URL to a video on YouTube . Once this address has been copied, visit one

of the above pages and paste that URL into the text field, then hit the submit or download button. If done properly, the page should open a new window or display a link that can be clicked to start the download of the video file. Click that link and save the file.

As many of the pages state, you'll have to save the file with a name and an extension that ends with .flv. If you did not save the file with .flv at the end you can right-click the file after it's been downloaded and rename the file so it ends with .flv.

Watching the YouTube video on your computer

Once the .flv file has been downloaded to your computer, you'll need a player that supports .flv files. Below are a few suggestions:
