EASILY download any youtube video in firefox — don’t bother with youtube extensions

Filed under: category euthanized,Download,firefox,Geeky goodness — Sagacious Himself @ 4:36 am

There’s no reason to install a “youtube extension”. All that’s required is Firefox and AdBlock Plus.

(1) visit YouTube
(2) pick and play a video
(3) mash CTRL+Shift+B
(4) in that search bar enter: get_vid
(5) right click that URL, open in new tab
(6) close existing tab.. and download from new tab will commence
(7) rename FLV to suit and watch (in MPlayer or similar)

repeat as desired

  2. yet another overly hyped web 2.0 applications been launched, and you know you need it cuz of the two point oh, on the net with all its many tubes in xxx is xxx a multi spammer mass hijacking application to pawn off others work as your own but what’s more we’ll let you pay us to do almost none of this for you

    xxx searches from 30 of the net’s top video site and has already got over 25,000,000 videos in its database, users who own a video sharing script sign up for an account, search for media, edit and manipulate the media then mass send the results directly to their websites.

    This application is not only perfect for anything new but yet another spamming aggregater to populate their sites but also for the experienced spammer who’s looking to create keyword rich, targeted niche video sites with no original content or spam blogs as xxx now has full support for WordPress & Blogger allowing the blogging community to mass add embedded content to their blogs without the need for tags, codes, widgets or modules.

    you can get more information about xxxhere.

    Please send copious amounts of taudry email to:

    copy email to sign him up for something nasty to find out the garish product he’s spamming
