[How To] How to efficiently record youtube for future playback
#1
Dear readers, I am facing a problem. My connection speed in India (I am currently there) is 512K. It really is much slower, because due to greed, the local provider has oversubscribed. The bandwidth spread out is thin, and therefore slow, except sometimes late at night.

This creates a problem. I cannot listen to my favorite songs on youtube without the stoppage due to refresh requirement. I have tried using the FLV software, but each song saved is typically 20MB. Just too big to be practical.

How do you others manage. It will help us all - at least those with slower connections.

I´m using Mozilla Firefox and an (excellent) add-on: DownloadHelper

With this add-on I can save everything from YouTube, any Flash animation and several videos (and some streaming too!).

To reproduce, I suggest FLV Player (free)

Regards

arashaeri,
Please elaborate. I do not understand the idm or klite. I am 54 years old, and not hip any more. Thanks for the response.

if the video of the song does not matter to you, just the audio part, then you can easily download the song from youtube in .mp4 or .mp3 format with these online downloaders/convertors:

There you have a radio for specific genre or you can create a playlist for the songs that you like, it's free and doesn't require a high speed connection to work.
