How To Download a YouTube Video in Three Simple Steps

Jan 24, 2011 by

There are a number of ways on how to download YouTube videos, most of them requiring you to install a third party application or a plugin for your browser.

On most times, these apps/plugins will download the video from YouTube as a .flv or flash file.

Earlier, I bumped into this site that shows the steps on how could download YouTube videos as MP4 without requiring any third party apps to be installed – in three simple steps.

So, how do you do this?

  • First, type the url of the YouTube video

  • Next, on the address bar, remove the “www.” and replace it with “nt“and press the Enter key

ex. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VoFbH8jTzE&feature=channel

will now be http://ntyoutube.com/watch?v=-VoFbH8jTzE&feature=channel

or ntyoutube.com/watch?v=-VoFbH8jTzE&feature=channel

  • (A pop-up window same as below will appear). Select ‘Save File‘ and specify the destination/location to save the video.


Now, Isn’t that sweet? :)

  1. That’s a cool trick.

    You can also go to http://keepvid.com/ and paste the YouTube link and click download. Without installing anything, you can then select which format and resolution you want from the five different download links generated. :)
