Download Embedded VideoShare
How much longer are all those old MTV videos going to be parked on YouTube? Probably not much longer. It seems like more and more videos disappear from Murphy’s favorites every day. What can you do about it? Download some of your favorites and store them yourself.
There are plenty of tools for downloading the videos. And others that play them. There are probably even some that do both. For the screencast Murphy uses a really simple add-on he started with a while back, when there weren’t as many. It’s called VideoDownloader. If you’re just a casual downloader it’ll probably meet your needs. Other tools have more features, like the ability to queue pages for download. Check this post on TUAW for a rundown on the other tools.
In the screencast Murphy uses VLC to playback the downloaded video.
Who knows why the MTV video library isn’t online yet. But after Monday’s EMI news you never know what might happen. In the meantime, maybe you should grab some of your favorites from sites like YouTube.Watch Now | Permalink
