Can you copy a Utube video? – a good NYC computer repair question

Yes, but not gracefully.  Utube is trying hard to keep their unique content within their site and not duplicated.  However, since Utube has grown and users sometimes like to copy a video to their computer or CD, some applications have been created to beat the system. 

You can download a Utube video by following the below steps:

  1. Install Firefox if it’s not already on your computer.
  2. Register for a free username if you haven’t done so on Firefox.
  3. Install the Utube download video add-on.
  4. Follow the steps from the program to download videos to your computer.

Please note, there is no true, default Utube video downloader.  This means that any software used is free and at the user’s risk.  You won’t get viruses most likely, but it is a good chance that the software might not work.  Also, the software is not intuitive for new download users.  That being said, the Firefox add-on recommended is the best computer software provided for downloading videos from Utube.
