YouTube is surely the most popular online video sharing site, allowing users to upload, share and comment clips with other members of the community. Since the Google acquisition in October 2006, the video service encountered a lot of problems caused by the content published on its page. As you surely know, YouTube was attacked by numerous lawsuits, several companies or celebrities suing
the video service for publishing content without authorization. Recently, Viacom, the owner of MTV and Comedy Central, ordered the video service to remove almost 100.000 clips from the page because Google doesn't pay for them.
Today, I'll present you an interesting way to download your favorite YouTube videos presented by The Red Ferret Journal, a blog company that sustained it represents the easiest way to download clips. Kiss YouTube is an online solution that allows you to download the clips using only the website address. The procedure is quite simple: connect to the YouTube page, copy the web address of your desired vide, paste it into the Kiss YouTube service and add the "kiss" term between the www tag and the youtube name.
The service downloads the videos in the flv format so, if you intend to view the movies in the offline mode, you need to use a separate media player with flv format. The utility is extremely useful because it allows users to download the clips fast without having to install other applications or plugins while it is accessible via an online interface. Although I guess the flv extension might cause some headaches, it would be extremely useful if the developers decide to add avi support and allow us to download the movies directly into this kind of movie format. If you want to test the service, you should click on this link.
