Life of a Jackal

Another day a new beginning

Download youtube and google videos

One of the frustrating things about websites that use Flash video is
that they rarely provide links to let you download the video files for
offline viewing or transcoding/syncing to portable devices like the Sony PSP, video iPod, or Creative Zen Vision.

Case and point: Google Video and YouTube. Neither of these websites allow you to download the video files. This type of lock-down is soooo Web 1.0.

to install these scripts you will need the Greasemonkey extension for Firefox.
After installing Greasemonkey, relaunch Firefox, then right-click the
links above and select “Install User Script.” Now whenever you browse
to a Google Video or YouTube webpage, you will see a prominent download
link at the top.
