We all like to save our favorite videos from YouTube and other video sharing Web sites like it. There are a dozen or two different ways you can get the job done as well. One of the easiest ones I have found comes from Remlapsoftware.com and is called YouRipper.

Obviously getting its name from YouTube, YouRipper allows you to save and store flash videos from the Web to your own personal computer. The fun does not stop there though.

YouRipper is a small, easy to use utility which enables the end-user to download videos from the major video sharing Web sites such as YouTube. YouRipper also enables Webmasters, bloggers, and MySpace hosts to embed videos from YouTube, etc. into their own pages, using a generic, fully customizable video player.

The program is totally free, and the only annoying thing about it is the nags for donations. On the good side though, it is compact and for the most part does stay out of my way. At present time it has support for the following Web sites as well:

  • YouTube
  • Google Video
  • MySpace
  • Daily Motion
  • Guba

What if this isn’t your cup of tea? Well, then I will suggest you check out one of my favorite Firefox extensions, the VideoDownloader. It is also free – and pretty handy if you are using Firefox.
