You got your favourite film on YouTube and save it on your local PC?

Use this site:

KeepVid.com

Copy the Film-URL into the Textbox, then press Download
then you can download the ".flv"-File.

How can you play it on your local PC - even without Internet?

Use the

FREE FLV-Player

Please note that i did not test the player a lot. It just worked the few times I needed it.

The setup-program asks you if it is allowed to install additional utilities from that company. Therefore read before you click, and decide if you need them also - or not.

I'm using Opera and there is a good widget to download youtube videos with different resolutions right from youtube page.

What exactly?
Where can it be found?
Have you forgotten how to use Google Theo?  :)

Have a look at the site to find out what it can do - I'm not a salesman!
I have, however, been using it for years and wouldn't be without it.

I've tested several "video downloaders" over the last 8 months... the problem with most is that they either do not work, work intermittently, or stop working when YouTube makes some change.

Until I tried Freemake Video Downloader.  It works all the time, every time, due to installing WinPCap I'm assuming, and gives tons of options.

Completely free.

Look up URL on Google.
