    Default Download YouTube Videos in Chrome

    After having one of those 'Download Video from YouTube' sites many moons ago, i thought i'd check the code and see what could be done for Chrome as yes it can be done.

    Create a new bookmark and call it "Download YouTube" or something you will remember, then for the address field paste:

    javascript:window.location.href = 'http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=' + swfArgs['video_id']+ "&l=" + swfArgs['l'] + "&sk=" + swfArgs['sk'] + '&fmt_map' + swfArgs['fmt_map'] + '&t=' + swfArgs['t'];
    Then save your bookmark. Next go to the YouTube video you want to download, when it starts playing click your "Download YouTube" bookmark and you will see the .flv start to download in Chrome's download status bar.

    With a bit of tinkering around with the above code, also downloading the video in MP4 is possible.

    Same as above, create a new bookmark (It's probably best to name the above Download YouTube in FLV and then name this one Download YouTube in MP4) then add the following code in the address field:

    javascript:window.location.href = 'http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=' + swfArgs['video_id']+ "&fmt=18" + "&l=" + swfArgs['l'] + "&sk=" + swfArgs['sk'] + '&fmt_map' + swfArgs['fmt_map'] + '&t=' + swfArgs['t'];
    Save then use the same way as the above.

    Default can you add.. ?

    Hi, I love those addons there but when I use it it just download a file called get_file with no extension.

    Is it possible to force a name on the file and also a .flv or .mp4 extension ?

    thank you in advance.

    Thanks for the plugin, especially the MP4 version.
    Do you think you could get it to work for vimeo.com. If you could, that would be really helpful.

    Code:
    javascript:window.location.href = 'http://keepvid.com/?url=' + window.location.href;
    I made that, it works on all video sites.

    In my case, I just bookmarked a site called Grabthatvideo.com

    I could have my favorite YouTube videos in just a minute or two. Simple instructions to follow and free software to download.
