How many times have you watched a video, and thought that you'd want to show this to your grand kids someday. What if the internet doesn't exist 50 years from now, what then?
Lucky for us, some innovative genius thought up this idea. Let's code a website that helps people save youtube stuff to their computer. It started off as only audio, but some websites do video now as well.
You may need to download Java to use some of these websites.
Let's have a look at a few of the more popular ones, shall we.
Catchvideo.net is one of the easier sites to use.
All you have to do is copy the link from whichever video streaming website you're using, and paste it into the box as shown below and click 'catch'.
If you want audio only and no video, then just click on the 'convert to mp3' link, and repeat the process as above.
This website covers all the major video streaming websites, including youtube, dailymotion, metacafe, vimeo etc.
Be warned, depending on the size of the video you're accessing, it may take a while to convert into downloadable format.
savemedia.com is another user friendly website. However they only do youtube videos, but they give you a variety of formats to choose from.
Just copy and paste the youtube link into the 'Enter a video URL' box, and click 'Download by URL' which then gives you multiple download options in different video formats.
Also, to make things even easier, you don't even need to go to their website. Just replace youtube with 'SaveMedia' and it takes you to their site with the download links already there.
3. YouTube mp3
YouTube mp3 does only audio. It will convert any youtube video you want into a downloadable mp3.
Pretty straightforward. Just copy and paste the youtube link into the box you see above, and click 'Convert Video'.
They usually take about 3-4 minutes for conversion of a 5 minute video to mp3 format.
That's about all you need to get started. Have fun.
Thanks for reading.
