How to Record YouTube™ Video

May 25, 2009

It’s easy to capture YouTube™ videos. Using Replay A/V from Applian Technologies, you can save anything you see on YouTube or other similar sites. Not only does Replay A/V easily record these videos, but it will automatically convert them into a variety of other formats, including iPod video and 3GP for mobile phones.

Videos from YouTube and like sites are transmitted and captured in FLV format. Many of these video sites cache the video on your PC if you’ve already played it. Replay A/V is the only software smart enough to search your cache, locate videos you’ve recently played, and even show the name of the video so you can archive it easily on your PC. It’s the best way to save these FLV video clips.

Here is how to record YouTube video:

  1. Download and install a copy of Replay A/V.
  2. Play the video in YouTube. Once it’s done playing, a copy of the video is in your PC’s cache. (If you’ve already watched the video you can skip this step.)
  3. Open Replay A/V. When you open the program the main screen looks like this:

Click on the Open Recording Wizard button and the following screen will appear:

Click on the Record something right now button and the following screen will appear:

    There are two ways in which you can capture streaming video from the web to your PC.

    One are the downloaders, softwares that offer you the option to download the video you are watching on your browser directly to your hard drive. The second are the video capture applications which allow you to select the part of the screen you want to record and grab the video from there. Tha main advantage of the video capture applications is that they can record DRM protected content.

    I use a video capture app called 1AVCapture to capture streaming video and streaming audio to my PC. I like it exactly because it captures video and audio separatedely. But there are many options out there.

    Here is a link to 1AVCapture:
