How to download video from youtube, ifilm, etc.

Recommended Posts

If there is no “Download videos using BitComet” when you right-click on the page, you should make sure the following points:

A: Is your BitComet the latest version? Please visit www.bitcomet.com to get the latest one. Now it is v.79.

B: Is the explorer you are using the Microsoft Internet Explorer? Any other explorer such as FireFox is not supported yet.

C: Are you clicking on the right position? Clicking on a video, picture in the page will give you a different result. In this case, you’d better move your mouse to try some other positions.

Notes: To enable this download, you should update your BitComet to version .79 which could be download here:www.bitcomet.com. Also only the I.E. is supported. I am sorry for ppls who are using FireFox.

I am sorry for special_brew and Meverick. I had to delete your replies because I wanted my download guide be the first reply to this post.

These are all you need to do to download videos from these sites. If you have any questions related to video download, Post it here. We are glad to help you with your problem.

From your posts, I am glad to see some guys have downloaded flv files with BitComet successfully. Congratulations! But another questions is how to play the file. I have a good news to tell you. The BitComet itself supports playing flv files.

After your download finished, double-click the flv file within the BitComet windows, then the BitComet will play the video for you.

I tried it, it was done. I think you should update your BitCommet accordingly. Please kindly check for the version of your software.

thanks

After downloading from youtube, I've got a file 8.6MB, but it's not in video format.

The file can not be opened with windows media player nor real player.

How do I fix that???

Ok I managed to download a video from you tube but it was a .flv file which is no good to me..

I need the file to be a .swf file. Any help?

From what I know, you can't do anything with a .flv file..

After your download finished, double-click the flv file within the BitComet windows, then the BitComet will play the video for you.

v_man722, you can use flv player or vlc player, i prefer vlc.

hmm, I just realized that i posted a link to an external site. I forget if that is allowed at this forum, please delete my post if it is against the rules and let me know. However i will read the rules over again in a little while. Thanks.

It dosen't matter. :) But BitComet can do what a flv. player can. So you needn't download another software to play the flv.

The video downloader is a feature recently added to the new client.

Please note that version .79 has to be "installed" for this to appear in your "right click" menu, so running the "green" (no installation) version won't have that menu.

I consider version .79 to be less then stable.

Although we have many members using it without issue, we are still getting reports of problems.

as for having .flv files, these are easily converted using "super" (google it with .fl i,e "super .flv" ) it will convert it into basically anything you want, you can even choose which audio type you want, from .3gp - sony psp audio, then you can choose your video type, and your set :D

Man ... the only time i get to post the first reply and it gets deleted !!! lol

Still, I downloaded bitcomet 0.79 and sure enough i got the context menu that allows downloading of videos (or other files).

The only 'slight' glitch. Sometimes the files download as .flv and sometimes with no extension. VLC seems to play everything OK though, however you open them or rename them.

The 'download all links' is a nice feature too. I used to have a similar feature on the download manager Netants, but my spyware program was always warning me about 'data miners' in Netants, so I deleted it. My daughter is away travelling and is posting loads of photos to her blog. It's such a pain having to open and save every individual photo. Now I don't have to. :)

So thanks to the developers for these nice features

I am glad you like the software. You can play any media files just with BitComet. It is a new feature too. All you have to do is to open the file within the window of BitComet. And, we have recorded your "slight glitch" and will check it.

Do you by chance know how you have youtube working on IE7?

Sorry to say - If you mean how is youtube working on IE7 in general,It as always worked with no problems for me. :D

I was afraid you'd say that. I have something blocking youtube in IE7 when I went to test this video download feature. And since I have a lot of security programs its a real pain to figure out.

I still need some help, you guys...

I've updated my Bitcomet to 0.79, downloaded a video fom youtube, tried to convert it using Super and...that's as far as I've gone LOL

When I try converting, it says it may not be valid media file...do I need to rename the file or just convert it as it came from Bitcomet? I've tried both and got the same end. :blink:

Thanks a lot for this feature and for any help :)

Hi! If you only wanted to play the file, you can open it within the window of BitComet which can play almost any types of files. If you wanted to convert the file, I am sorry I can not help. :(
