    use a free program called youtube downloader, this allows you to download the clips to flv then open up flv files and convert them to a suitable video file. i do this and convert to wmv no problem. to find it type in "youtube downloader" in google and well pick from the results i suppose!

    Or you could use a converter to convert the files to .mov or something. Best converter i have found is esuper, though the download link can be fairly tricky to find.

    I downloaded this yesterday and found that this too would not play the file.

    Quicktime just says that it is not a movie file.

    I am coming closer to the conclusion that the file is fudged like Geoff said.

    I am just trying this site. If it works well it could be useful even in school as we connect to You Tube through their server.

    The only problem i have at the moment though is how long does it ususally take?

    I have sat here waiting around 5 -10 minutes and still have a spinning cog with Connecting to server... Is this also downloading the vid as well as connecting or is it just not working?

    I have tried with both firefox and safari and so far nothing.


    PS This is the URL i have been given

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id-75...eature=related

    I don't know if it works or not as it is blocked and i haven't checked it at home.

    Were you aware that downloading films from YouTube is against their Ts&Cs?

    Wimpy FLV Player

    Neat little player, standalone EXE so no installation required.
