YouTube is one of the most popular websites on the internet. I used to spend eight hours on the site just watching videos and placing comments. The problem with the site is the fact that you can’t download the videos to your computer... well, that was what I thought before (about two years before).

I discovered the very reliable Download Helper. Using this add-on from mozilla, you can download videos from YouTube instantly. However, you won’t be able to play the videos in your computer unless you have an FLV player. The video format doesn’t work with the Media Player.

Now, I found out that there is another video downloader program – the YouTube Downloader - which you can use to download videos from YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, and many others. Not only can it download videos, you can also use it to convert the videos to other formats. You can convert the videos for Ipod, Iphone, PSP, Cell Phone, Window’s Media Player, XVid and MP3 use.

The software has a very simple interface which makes it easy and convenient to use. You just have to copy the video’s YouTube URL, paste in on the dialog box and click “OK”. After downloading the video, you can start converting the videos with juts one left click. It’s perfect for everyday internet surfers who love videos.
