How to download YouTube videos, MySpace music... and more27.11.2007 3:59

Funny thing I found out a couple of days ago. Different companies with variety of sites are forcing newer and stronger improvements - all to keep us away from content of their pages. But internet community never give up and invent better and more creative tools to grab it.

Everything seems spinning around, but... not many people know that, we don't really need that stuff to rip music from MySpace or save videos from YouTube.

And here is the funny thing - sites are saving that content on our HD's by themselves!! All we need is - for some of you, one of the lamest software ever - for me still the best browser - Internet Explorer.

Apparently, it seems that flash players, which are inserted on web pages, need to download what they are going to play... so they simply save it on our disks in Temporary Internet Files. Eureka! Then all we need is just find proper file.

Yes, it's kinda lame... but true. And I'm so ashamed I didn't found that obvious thing out a little bit earlier.


Quick tip: clear entire IE's cache before visiting a page - you'll find whatever you're looking for a lot easier.

Useful tip: Movies are mostly with .flv extension, music with .mp3. To know how to play .flv files visit my software page. You'll also find there a way to convert them online into different types.

Beginners' tip: To find out your current location of Temporary Internet Files open Internet Options (in IE) and check browsing history settings (in most cases: C:\Documents and Settings\User name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\).

Some stupid thoughts

Rhetorical question: Why in Linux every single program must by called like "gv", "xzgv", "gimp", "xsane", "sax", "yast"... Surelly it says a lot of program destination. And no, "sax" has nothing in common with saxophone.

My beloved book

While don't know where to go

`Cheshire Puss,' she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name:
however, it only grinned a little wider. `Come, it's pleased so far,' thought Alice, and she went on.

`Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
`I don't much care where--' said Alice.
`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.
`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'
