Technology Blogging, Since 2006 . . .

Youripper lets you directly download youtube videos.

There are tons of websites, book-marklets and Firefox extensions that let you download youtube video onto your hard drive, YouRipper takes a different route.

YouRipper is a desktop based utility that takes the URL of the Youtube video and saves it to any folder on your hard disk in the popular FLV format.You may think of YouRipper as just another video download manager, the interesting part is that it accepts the cryptic Youtube video URL and decodes it to find the actual location of the flv video bypassing the need to use services like Keepvid or Greasemonkey scripts.

YouRipper should definitely appeal to users who look to downloading youtube videos outside the web browser or find Firefox extensions too geeky to use. Wish it could save in the AVI format and supported pause-resume like other download clients... Enjoy!

Just to let you guys know, I have released version 2.30 of YouRipper. New to this version is the Embed Feature, which shourl really interest Webmasters, Bloggers and MySpace hosts.

While YouTube encorages people to embed videos into their own pages, you are stuck with their heavily branded, uncustomizable video player....NOT ANY MORE! :)

The YouRipper Embed feature lets you embed videos from YouTube etc. using a fully configurable, unbranded, generic video player. Use the configuration wiz to have your video player looking the way you want it and YouRipper will produce all the required Javascript and/or HTML. All you need to do is paste the code into your page. Fun eh?

Well it gets better, because you can even create playlists of videos and yes, you can set your own logo into the bottom right of the video player, just like YouTube.

Anyway, full details, with working demos and examples, can be found over at my site (link above)

Thanks for reviewing YouRipper, Rishil.

Best wishes from England
