[Archived] Downloading From Youtube

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend an alternative way of downloading clips? Youtube is blocked at work so in the past I've often used zamzar.com to download clips onto a memory stick that I can take in and use. It was recommended to me on a training course, so I hope it's been legal! Just recently, Zamzar have started to give this message when you try to convert a video: "Sorry, we can't get that video. At the request of Google we have had to remove support for the downloading of YouTube videos on Zamzar." Does anyone know of another site/easy way for me to still get my clips?

I think I've downloaded it, thanks, Clair but foolishly only read people's comments afterwards, like this:

"Right after installation, my AV detected the Trojan.win32.FakeAV trojan . It apparently installed a fake AV called Live Security Platinum. I refused internet access when asked by my firewall, but Live Security started its fake scan. I managed to remove Live Security. It didn't "kill" my computer, but it definitely has malware."

Is this scaremongering or do I need to be really careful?

Edit: scaremongering! The computer's been on and off a few times now and I've downloaded and converted a few things with no probs. Cheers, Clair - it's really useful!
