A long while back, I posted a method of downloading YouTube videos and saving them to your desktop. Since then, the method
has been updated and it looks like YouTube is making part of the number
session dependent which means that it changes every time you view it.
Lots of fun.
In the comment section of the new post is also a link
to where you can type in the URL of the video you want and it will be
automatically downloaded for you. Unfortunetly, I’m on a locked down
terminal today so I can’t try it myself. Hopefully someone will report
back on it.
edit: Fixed link to the downloader since we’re now hosting a local copy of it.
