Keep Your Favorite Youtube Videos

Tonight's post is going to be short and to the point.  I'm always being asked what the best way to download Youtube videos.  I'm usually hesitant about sharing that information because I'm honestly not sure how legal it is to download those videos.  I'll let you be the judge.  but if you have bandwith issues or need to incorporate that video into a presentation, the best method I've found is with Keepvid.  Simply paste the link to the URL box on the Keepvid site and click download. As long as you have Java installed, You'll be presented with a number of options.  Many different resolutions of FLV file, but also mp4 (which is important because that's what most portable devices like Ipods will play). and now even mp3s (stripping away the video).  I ask that you use Keepvid responsibly at least trying to adhere to fair use standards.
