You probably saved my marriage. Don't know how many times I had to go through the process of saving a video with my wife.

Thanks guys
It's much easier now, since youtube use HTML 5, rightclick the video while playing
and choose "save video as". You get it as a webm file.

The "ss" service is still great for a quick download of videos which are blocked for german IPs.

I went to www.youtube.com and my screen just flicker but if I go to www.yahoo.com the screen is normal and other links seem to be normal too. Can that be fixed or not?
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

I recommend youtube-dl if you want the HD video file or the audio file
in best quality possible.

Note:
youtube-dl needs python.
It can extract videos from many (other) sites.
use the newest version

When you have it running, check with

Code: Select all

youtube-dl -F www.youtube.com/xxxxxx
which (video/audio) qualities are available.

download the best option - usually f 22 - if available.

For audio only (best quality possible) use eg.

Code: Select all

youtube-dl -x --audio-format wav -f 22 www.youtube.com/xxxxxxx
Make an mp3 later (if you need) with better encoder settings
than these "download pages" do it.
eg.

Code: Select all

lame -m s -b 256 --strictly-enforce-iso -q 2 <infile> [outfile]
8)

^ If I may just add, always update after a couple of days:

Code: Select all

sudo  youtube-dl  -U
