You Tube downloads

Q: You Tube downloads

how can I download and save You Tube videos? This is for my own use - I understand not to break copyright laws. Thank you.

Preferred Solution: You Tube downloads

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: You Tube downloads

YouTube does not allow downloading .... Sorry we can't help here ....

Unless it's a video you uploaded to your channel

I was trying to download some Christmas music from YouTube. Once I downloaded a song and played it, the video would pause and rewind or wind forward and then start over from the point of interuption.?

In other words all the songs are interrupted about every 15 seconds ?

The picture will stop, I will see a black screen with a white whell in the center that will be spinning.
I have Media Player 11 on the computer along with QuickTime.

Another example would be, if I play a video on YouTube, about every 10 to 15 seconds the video will stop and rewind.
Any Advice ?
Thank You for your time.


A:You Tube Downloads Breaking Up

Whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube or download music or movies from iTunes YouTube frequently stops apparently in order for the video to buffer and the iTunes downloads take a very, very long time. I have checked the Internet by Googling this problem, but there are a plethora of suggestions and I'm not sure which ones are viable. Does anyone here on Tech Support Guy.com have any suggestions? Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Well, for no reason I can discern. See if anyone out there can crack this problem. I've searched the forums, and came up empty as far as finding an exact match of the problem.

The problem: Downloading EXE files and what I assume are EXE files (Flash Viewer update, Java update, etc.) stops after a short amount of progress. There's no warning message, no error message, no clue at all given by the OS; the progress bar just...stops. It waits patiently, even if I cannot. It'll stay there all day if I let it.

Replication: It's inconsistent in that some EXEs do download just fine, but consistent in that the same EXE files always freeze. Consequently, I don't have the latest Java updates, Flash Viewer updates, and more, and I can't download Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger. The latest problem: I can't play my new game, Company of Heroes, until the in-game patch downloader installs the latest patch. Problem is, it freezes.

System configs: This happens on both of my Vista Ultimate 32-bit machines at home: one a home-built desktop, one a Gateway laptop. The problem files, updates, and circumstances are identical between the two machines, so please no "homebuilt-bashing" or "Gateway-bashing" in regards to this issue. Seriously, the only things in common between these two machines are (1) I'm the user (2) the OS (3) same network. Desktop is cabled Ethernet, laptop is wireless 802.11g. I'd list all the memory, processors, hard drives, etc. here, except si... Read more

A:EXE downloads and plugin downloads stop for no reason

Hi Akambe and welcome to a world where there are 90% men.

I think I had the same problem some years ago. I'm not sure if this will do any good, but it's better than nothing.

Click on Accessories and RUN and type this sfc /scannow
This will repair windows or replace either corrupt or missing files.
Have the OS DVD in drive while doing this.

Also on RUN type msconfig and on the StartUp tab disable things you don't want starting up. Try disabling everything and see if there's any difference. Something could be conflicting with other applications.

Other things you can do is to clean your HDD with ccleaner.
Enable Advanced options while doing so which will eliminate a lot of garbage from your PC. It's all safe to do so.

Hope this helps.

Hi to all
I have been away for a while, but now I am back with a question. I tried and liked IE 11. The only problem is that You Tube Freezes, even if I am just on the page and nothing is playing. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

A:IE 11 and You Tube

I had to Uninstall flash but it's been working well after that ?
I've been checking out music videos and never noticed Shockwave was disabled
So ie11 must have some components for playing content on youtube,
After enabling it does show a more tradition youtube video frame.
Otherwise it's working well,
I did however need to switch back to gpu rendering for other small issues.
Cheers and welcome back

Just like to add some people have said Enhanced Protection Mode was activated when updating to ie11 but this was not the case on my end so you might check on that,
Internet options/ Advanced section.

Several days ago I tried to watch a game video on You Tube. I have been doing this everyday. Now when I go to the video I need it acts like it's going to start but then a black screen appears Saying" error occured, plz try again Later". I did some research and have updated all the plugins such as Java. I also cleaned my cookies, cache history and temp files. Still no luck. You tube must be stupid because you are requesting help on this and they direct you to a VIDEO. Of course it goes black so no help there. I have tried everything I have read and I just can't get it to work. SOOO frustrating but at least my pc is clean LOL. I would appreciate any help at all. Thank you Tina Brown

How do you remove your profile photo from your you tube account? How do you delete comments you made on other peoples videos? I noticed there was no remove comment button. Thanks

A:You Tube

Hi, go your home page on YT and click your username and select from the drop menu Account .
On this page click Profile Setup and in there you can change your picture.
As for removing comments I'm not too sure...I would assume once you click the send button thats it, they stay on the persons YT account until they delete them, I think you have no control over that.

We meet again !

When you try to upload the video here: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_upload
What actually happens?

To allow you to answer the question and also gain some support:

Can you confirm your Java is up to date, here: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre&try=1

And also, your Firewall is not interfering with going to the upload site, by temporarily disabling it, and trying again.

Also can you add http://www.youtube.com to your Trusted zone
Tools --> Internet Options--> Security --> Trusted Sites --> Sites
Remove the tick, and then "Add" the site http://www.youtube.com

Also, I have had this work as well in some situations:
Tools --> Internet Options--> Privacy --> Advanced --> Tick (Accept all for both)

Apply-->OK--> Restart Internet Explorer

If none of these options still help. You may want to try Downloading and re-installing Internet Explorer

Good morning !

It's baffling to my as I do not have a YouTube account and I've never had one. I'm pretty sure that it has something to do with my gmail account. Is there any way for me to "unlink" or stop this from happening.

G-Mail = YouTube = Google. Anyways, it's more likely it would be in your cached files (temporary internet files). Clearing that out should take it out, unless you use your google account signed in on Google Chrome.

Does this violate any laws or regulations. If not, do I need any special software to do it.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

A:You tube video

Section 4c of the YouTube TOS spells out restrictions on the use of their videos. Read and heed.

You agree not to access User Submissions (defined below) or YouTube Content through any technology or means other than the video playback pages of the Website itself, the YouTube Embeddable Player, or other explicitly authorized means YouTube may designate.

Section 5b reads as follows.

You may access User Submissions for your information and personal use solely as intended through the provided functionality of the YouTube Website. You shall not copy or download any User Submission unless you see a “download” or similar link displayed by YouTube on the YouTube Website for that User Submission.

I am pretty sure no one here will help in violating another sites TOS.
