"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I am unsure if admin will allow me to post a link for Youtube downloader tool but there are online as well as installable programs to accomplish this.  Simply Google "YouTube downloader or YouTube online downloader" and you will find many.

I use Replay Media Catcher, but please be aware that there are copyright issues. These programs will usually allow you to download stuff that you probably shouldn't.
