How to download videos to your desktop?

Please find some of the methods that you can use below:

1. Keepvid.com – This is one of the first websites that came up and has been my favorite ever since. Its quite simple and gives you the choice of downloading the videos in either .flv or .mp4 formats.

  • Simply copy the URL of the page on the video is there i.e. goto the video on YouTube.com and copy the link from the addressbar. Example – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5ya0dehxms
  • Goto www.keepvid.com and paste the link in the Textbox on the top of the page, click on download.
  • You will be provided download links  for both the formats. Download the one desired. Simple, eh?

2. Download directly – This option lets you download your video directly from address bar without going to any website. What more, you can download in the format you desire viz. flv, 3gp or mp4. Find the steps below:

Suppose you want to download following video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5ya0dehxms

Then after adding the OK the url will be like this

http://www.OKyoutube.com/watch?v=P5ya0dehxms – Will download it in FLV format.

If you want to download video in 3GP format then the url will be:
