Do a Google Search in saving youtube videos. And you are likely to come up with numerous results. Tons of websites offering you ways of downloading You Tube videos.

Now having tried many of them myself, I found out that that most of these did not work every time.

Now I am putting up two websites that I found were the best and the fastest to download videos.

First one is on the very popular website TechCrunch.com

Here’s the link : YouTube Video Download

How To Download ??

Just get the video link { Example : http://youtube.com/watch?v=M3n-eiSpErk } from YouTube and paste it in the text box.

And remember to rename the video and change the extension to ‘.flv’. Use flvPlayer or VLC Playerto play the video.

There’s also another great site that always worked for me.

Now this is another really cool but weird site that documents the historic era of the internet and computers, when everything was just text.

It has the largest collection of really old text files which comprise of E-Zines, Hacking Tutorials, Phreaking, Anarchy (really strange !!) , Stories, Books and a hell lot of other stuff.

Now comes the best part, some files are so weird that they will make you feel uneasy. Like in the Anarchy, section some of the files give you the complete instructions to make your own weapons ( and what not !! )

And it will take some time getting accustomed to the Matrix style webpages (but for our convenience we have other options as well).

The website is definitely worth a visit.

pod Here is another interesting website that let’s you group and manage your online videos from number of sites.

The main feature of this website is that it lets you share your ‘pods’ through the blog widgets that are available.This is what the creators have to say :

Instead, we give you some tools and a space (it’s called a Pod) to collect videos that matter to you. Videos that you want to show your friends and watch with them. Or videos you want to show a broader community that shares your interests. You decide what’s hot, and what’s not — not 563,000 people with tastes or interests unlike yours.

vod:pod has a rich feature set that is easy to use. You can make your videos public or private; consequently, could see people using it to share home movies, weddings, or travel logs. For others it will be a convenient way to collect and share interesting videos that they find online. The pod videos widget alone is worth the site registration, and the future plans for domain mapping and subscription services make it an interesting choice for anyone looking to monetize their own content.

VodPod.com is an easy to use, free service that allows you to save your favorite videos to “Pods”. There is also a social network to VodPod that allows you to see what is popular in the community and add friends if you want.

Give it a try !

When it comes to bookmarking websites i often mess up and lose some very good links. Often in the pat I was creating the “links[1234…..n].txt” text files, but they usually got mixed up and eventually lost. Also bookmarks were not available to me at all the different places. But while creating this blog I found a new( for me !) way of saving web links. It is Furl It !

“Furl is a free service that saves a personal copy of any page you find on the Web, and lets you find it again instantly by searching your archive of pages. It’s your Personal Web… Each member gets a 5-gigabyte personal archive, large enough to store tens of thousands of pages… When you want to find something again, enter any word or phrase you remember from it… Even if a page has disappeared from the Web and other search engines, you’ll still have a personal copy.”

There are some other choices as well like del.icio.us and Spurl which you can always try.

After signing up on site i have been Furling every page that i want to save with the furl button installed on my browser toolbar. The best part is that even if the web page is changed or removed you will still have your own personal copy stored and you can even check out what other people are saving.

. . . . . my attempts to get organized !!
