Default Quesion about youtube files, and such...

I am on a computer a work, and do not have administrative access, so I'm not sure if I can do this. But if I recall correctly, youtube files are downloaded to c:\program files\windows\ie\temp internet files\ for WinXP, correct?

I cannot unhide directories and files w/ my access, nor can I get into msconfig to change it there.

Basically what I"m trying to do is take a youtube file downloaded to the harddrive, burn it to cd, and find a viewer to view it on my home computer (which does not have internet access).

Try this:

Free FLV Downloader - How to Download FLV Using Orbit Downloader

Youtube files are FLV files or flash video files. Once you have it, you can use a FLV converter or you can use VLC player (free).


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

VideoDL.org - Download Online Video (Google Video, YouTube etc) in a Flash! I've used that to d/l quite a few videos off of Youtube. You just have to make sure to manually place a .flv after the file name when saving and/or renaming.
