KeepVid

Download and save YouTube videos to your computer.

How it Works

Using KeepVid
  1. Go to YouTube and find your video.
  2. Copy the link from the URL Address bar.
  3. Go to KeepVid
  4. Paste the link in the box that says "enter the link of the video you want to download..."
  5. Click the Download button next to where you pasted the link.
    BEWARE! Do NOT click on the larger download button underneath the box, this is an Advertisement.
  6. Click RUN on any Java prompts that appear.
    NOTE: If it asks you to update your Java, install the latest update using the software center OR click to update it later.
  7. Click on the link to the version you want to download and your download will begin (the video will be stored in your Downloads folder).
    HINT! Choose one of the MP4 file versions. Do not select one that says (Video Only) or no audio will be included in the file.
