how to download youtube videos to my computer


Whenever you find the youtube video you want the audio from type in "pwn" infront of youtube in the adress bar.
Example: www.youtube.com/song123 ->www.pwnyoutube.com/song123
Once you do this, hit enter and you will be brought to a new page. About halfway down you will be given the option to download the video as FLV or MP4. Click on the link Keppvid. Click allow on the java popup that follows and follow. Once the video is finished being converted into an FLV and MP4 just click on download for whatever filetype and resolution you want. I would suggest downloading MP4 at the highest resolution (biggest numbers). Click on the link and begin downloading and then you can use it in anyway you want.

Good Luck and vote for me if this answer helped you out. Cheers.
