PyTube or Utube Ripper 1.8 for a Youtube Downloader?
« on: September 03, 2010, 04:05:26 pm »

Need some help here. I haven't had the time to look this up.
An interesting project for the repository?

The simplest way is to add an extension to Firefox or Seamonkey for the Video Downloader extension.

You could also try elltube, it's already in the repositories for VL-6.0.  I'll take your idea for VL-7.0 and try and package something of this ilk.

While waiting for a package, a workaround is to just watch /tmp when playing flash video. A file named something like FlashXXIL5bGP will appear. When the video is fully buffered, copy and rename this file.

 Nice trick
