from HTYP, the free directory anyone can edit if they can prove to me that they're not a spambot
Although YouTube itself does not support downloads, there are several pieces of free software available for downloading YouTube videos. (Some of these work with other video services as well.)
- Youtube Downloader Wget Perl Script
- /DWPS/source: source code
- At least two Firefox extensions are also available.
- FixYT plays YouTube videos without the advertising, captions / onscreen text, and social networking hazards.
