- YouTube Catcher :
- http://www.youtube.com/getvideo ~ For Mp4, Flv and 3gp.
- http://www.youtubecatcher.com/videotomp3 ~ For Mp3.
- http://www.videogetting.com ~ For Mov, Wmv, Mpg, Mpeg and Avi ~ This site will not work properly if you browse it alone while this script is running because the script will think you called for a conversion and will submit the form on that site directly when you log on.
- http://keepvid.com ~ For exception calls in case the video is on the undownloadable list.
- YTC Interface :
- http://fbgames.web44.net/uscripts/youtube/update.htm ~ Update file settings.
- http://fbgames.web44.net/uscripts/youtube/ytc_color.css ~ Download table styles.
- Mp4, Flv and 3gp calls are the fastest. When you click on download as any of these formats you directly get to save the file.
- Mp3 requires a connection to YouTube catcher site and sends request to convert file. The time until save box appears depends on the video length.
- Mov, Mpg, Mpeg, Wmv and Avi open a web inside YouTube page and surf in it seeking for the file location and as soon as it's found/converted you will be prompted to save the file.
- Update is checked once every 9 days by the script itself while watching a video. The update file is very small and update takes less than 1 minute. You can download the new update or ignore it but it will still alert you every 9 days in case you ignored it.
