Default saving a video

Is there anyway of saving a video from a website like YouTube. i tried right clicking on the link and clicking on "save target as" and i would save it to teh desktop but it would just save the website address and would send me to the site. the reason i want to do this is because i want to put it on my ipod

any help would be apreciated

thanks

you would need to use some software to do it, something like
YouTube downloader

The pay version works amazingly well. I have used it many times and haven't had any problems at all. It costs about $50. The free version only lets you capture 5 MB streaming video.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Yup. Any video you see, just right click, select properties, copy the URL and stick it in the recorder. Presto!! You have video after it gets done. It takes about twice as long to download as the video length depending on the speed of your network. At least that has been my experience. For example, if your video is 2 minutes long, it takes about 4 minutes to capture. For vids that have multiple URL's in a string, get the last one in the string.

with me, it's the opposite. it takes less than half the length of the video. most video takes 2 minutes to download, even if it is 7-8 minutes long
