Offline Viewing of YouTube Videos

Lately we’ve been starting to create an Adobe TechLive YouTube channel so people can view the recordings for the various TechLive sessions. You can find that channel here:

http://www.youtube.com/user/AdobeTechLive.

Sometimes though, you want to watch a YouTube video offline, perhaps while you’re sitting on a train with spotty Wifi coverage.  There’s a service I came across that lets you download files from all kinds of services, including YouTube:

http://savefrom.net (http://sfrom.net also works)

What’s nice is if you simply append the link to the YouTube video after http://sfrom.net, it will take you to a page that will let you download that specific video.  For example, Christophe Coenraets recently did a TechLive session on architecting a real-world PhoneGap application. You can find the recording here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJINt-g9vBg.

 If you want to download that recording for offline viewing though, you simply need to go here:

http://sfrom.net/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJINt-g9vBg

Pretty slick.
