Download from YouTube without any software or Websites


Scenario :

You see a video on you tube and want to download it but due to bandwidth constraints, are unable to do so or dont want to use 3rd party tools.

Solution :

Here’s what you do :
1. Browse through Youtube as normal, Watching videos you like.

2. Now when you see a video that you like, the first step is : DO NOT CLOSE THE TAB OR WINDOW IN WHICH THE VIDEO IS OPEN. IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT CLOSE IT.

3.Now go to the following Location :

XP –     C:\Documents and Settings\*USERNAME*\Local Settings\Temp

Win 7 – C:\Users\*USERNAME*\AppData\Local\Temp

4. Here you will find a file by the name of ” fla*Some_Number*.tmp ” (e.g. fla128.tmp or fla36.tmp )

5. Thats the file that you have been Viewing, so just copy it rename it as “Whatever_You_Like.flv ”

6. Thats It. You Have just Downloaded a Video from Youtube without wasting even a bit of extra Bandwidth. Now you can apply for that Rocket Science Degree you always wanted.😉
