Software Tools:

Free YouTube Downloader

Note: It does make you download and install RealPlayer, because it uses RealPlayer’s features. Old software…and redundant…I recommend downloading RealPlayer, and skipping this one…But it’s there, if you want to try it.

Description: Free YouTube Downloader offers an alternative to visiting the YouTube website. In addition, it allows you to save YouTube videos to your hard drive in multiple formats…including ripping just the audio to MP3. Go download it. Install it. Start it Up. The options are fairly obvious. All you need is the URL to any video you need to download. Enter [copy and paste] the URL. Choose output format and quality. Click “download”. Look in “settings”, if you want to pick a custom download folder. Easy to use…though a video might not download, sometimes.

Description: A media player which also downloads web videos. “Keep your favorite web videos safe on your PC by downloading them. You can save videos from popular sites in one click – including YouTube.”
