Do you know that YouTube has lots of free full-length feature movies for all ages? And you can download these free flicks, save them and then watch all you want at your free time in privacy.
Here is one easy way for those of you who want to download and save those live streaming videos from YouTube.
This is how to do it:
1. Go to download VSO Downloader at: http://download.cnet.com/VSO-Downloader/3000-2071_4-75567517.html
2. After you have downloaded VSO Downloader, just click launch it.
3. The next time you want to use it again, go to where you had saved your VSO Downloader program. Then double click on the VSO Downloader icon to open the program.
Remember you have to start the progam (VSO Downloader) before playing the media (video clips).
4. Now, go to YouTube or any of those those live streaming so-called ‘taboo’ sites.
5. Click and play the live streaming video as usual. Automatically VSO Downloader will detect the streaming video.
6. A bubble dialog box will appear at the taskbar (below right hand corner of the computer screen) that says: “New media detected:002.mp4” [Note: 002.mp4 is the name of clip.]
7. It will start to download.
10. Make sure the small box in front of “Keep source files after conversion” is checked (meaning it is ticked).
11. At the left hand corner below there is an option list under Conversion. (Do not convert, Audio MP3, Generic Video, DVD, Apple and Mobile Phone). And there are more sub-options from Audio MP3, Generic Video, Apple and Mobile Phone.
12. Pick your own selection.
13. Once you have made your selection, it will say: “Converting…”. Once it is finished, it says: “Conversion finished”.
15. Or you can delete the saved clip from the folder by clicking on the red colored X icon under Tools.
Note: I recommend you use VLC media player, as it plays most of your files.
