    Download a video from a website?

    Im not sure if this infringes anyones copyright etc - but for example if i opened a link to something on youtube or fifth-gears websitewanted to save a video to my hdd is this possible? Or can you only watch them on the website? What im getting at is - do you have to be connected to the web to watch them?

    You could use a site such as to download videos from YouTube, and then watch it either using a FLV (Flash video) player , or convert it using something along the lines of ffmpeg.

    For other websites, you might be able to find different methods - first thing to try is to check the source for the page. Naturally, whether you're allowed to do this depends on what you're downloading.
