    URGENT - YouTube hack needed

    We have a situation here where students have uploaded some videos onto YouTube which should not be there.

    We need to grap copies of the video for disciplinary purposes but at the same time have them removed from the site.

    Anyone know what player will play them once we manage to grab them?

    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2390/

    Firefox video download plugin.
    VLC plays almost everything, so should be fine

    Was about to suggest the same. Will produce an FLV file which you can view with an FLV player (http://www.martijndevisser.com/blog/...player-updated).

    Depends, if they were uploaded in school or involved some 'incident' during school hours or on school grounds then the school would have reason to discipline them.

    See Cybernerds post. He linked to a Firefox addon that will do it.

    Anyone wanting a good FLV grabber to grab videos from youtube etc should try Orbit ( http://www.orbitdownloader.com/ ) I've found it to be the most reliable way of doing it.
