I know youtube videos can be downloaded by using bookmarklets, using some sites like keepvid or using a firefox extension.
BUt all these methods just give me a direct link to the flv file.

What I want is to be able to download several youtube files one after
another automatically. LIke I give some application a list of youtube links and then the app automatically fethces the video's flv link and downloads the videos one after the other.


any ideas ?

Edit: I should mention that the problem with downloading from youtube is that links aren't permanent. i.e I one attempts to queue several youtube flv links, then that won't work. So in order for proper queuing the download manager will have to fetch the flv link itself...
this is confusing, isn't it?

Install Internet Download Manager.. At the top of the Video you can see... a tab using which you can download FLV file of that video. I have had no probs using this method. So, should you.

If you want a batch download, just press 'download later' option to start queuing. This is the best method you can opt.. coz, IDM will also serve as a Download Manager.

tried Orbit: doesn't quite what I want. ITs not an easy tool to use for downloading many youtube videos. One has to open each video that in a browser individually and then make a couple of clicks.. its quite cumbersome..

Edit: same with IDM. not ideal for multiple queued youtube downloading..:(

If you have URL.. that means you went to the page once or more. If you have been to that page.. you can download it by IDM.You can queue youtube videos the way you queue a normal download. But URL queue is not available in IDM. AFAIK, IDM is the best to download manager to download youtube videos.

I have heard that real player also has an plugin to download youtube videos. Try that out if you are willing to do.

AFAIK this isn't true, because youtube's flv links aren't direct links and stop working after a while...

Anyways I found a way to download youtube videos - using youtube's autolplay/quicklist feature to play all the videos that I want to download. and then grab the video from the browser's cache.

Sorry for the late reply. I'll give you a clear cut view for you..

If you have IDM installed and using any supported Browser..(Here I am Using IE8.) It will show a tab above the video just like this..

if you press the tab.. you will get the download dialog box..

If you choose to download later.. It can be queued along with all regular downloads.

thanks for explaining in detail vamsi. I really appreciate it. :)
parantu (but) , the thing this doesn't quite work, because the link one gets from youtube isn't permanent. It expires after a while, making queueing impossible :(

Try with tunebite, it can download many videos in the same time from youtube and other music web sites and also it automatically converts them into your desired formats. It's very easy as all u hav to do is to browse ur fav videos on youtube and tunebite automatically saves them into ur video list and u can select from there the videos u'd like to hav. I really use it and it's very helpful...

Anyway, I will check that out tonight.

Free Download Manager, just keep pasting the url to the videos, it will get the .flv and download it in queue.
