I have just bought a new laptop and am looking for a peice of software to download youtube videos. I did use Video Piggy on my old computer which I found very user friendly, I think I got this free:-) but now it appears you have to pay for it :-( so can someone point me in the direction of a free user friendly answer. Thanks in anticipation

Keep vid as recommended by Brundle works well. I have used it for a long time.
I alsu use Super click here for stripping out the audio or changing the fromat . Again it is free.

Another good program which many of the other forum members use is click here it's free and is upgradeable to the pro version- see all the links on that page.

YouTubeRobot.com today announces YouTube Robot 2.0, a tool that enables you to download video from YouTube.com onto your PC, convert it to various formats to watch it when you are on the road on mobile devices like mobile phone, iPod, iPhone, Pocket PC, PSP, or Zune.

YouTube Robot allows you to search for videos using keywords or browse video by category, author, channel, language, tags, etc. When you find something noteworthy, you can preview the video right in YouTube Robot and then download it onto the hard disk drive. The speed, at which you will be downloading, is very high: up to 5 times faster than other software when you download a single file and up to 4 times faster when you download multiple files at a time.

Manual download is not the only option with YouTube Robot. You may as well schedule the download and conversion tasks to be executed automatically, even when you are not around. Downloading is followed by conversion to the format of your choice and uploading videos to a mobile device (if needed). For example, you can plug in iPod, select the video, go to bed, and when you wake up next morning, your iPod will be ready to play new YouTube videos.

You Tube Downloader - click here is my preference. After download of the flv file you have a choice of then converting to a number of formats including Windows Media Video or MPeg3 if you are only interested in the background music.
