Some of the sites where you can download videos from Youtube aren’t safe to use, they install viruses or malware onto your computer. Here’s a really easy and convenient way to download video from YouTube safely and easily; assuming you have the firefox web browser.

Not strictly related to web design, but important tool to have nonetheless. I was downloading Creative Commons video for a WordPress theme I’m going to release soon and needed to have this ability.

How to Download HD Video from YouTube with Firefox

  1. Install the GreaseMonkey extension for FireFox.  (https://addons NULL.mozilla NULL.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/)
  2. Install the UserScripts YouTube Video Downloader for GreaseMonkey (https://www NULL.userscripts NULL.org/scripts/show/62634)

Once that’s active, there will be a “Download” button next to the “Share” button on all Youtube videos that allows you to easily save multiple versions of the video file to your computer.
