Appreciate the assist, but would like to get the answers to questions before continuing. As it stands, they want to put in on Facebook. Continue on with your help if you wish.
I think what they mean is they want to download the video from youtube and keep it on their PC to watch at a later stage instead of always watching it on youtube.

However I do know of a website that does the job wonderfully, I am however not sure if the content on Youtube is proprietary.
Right now i am in Safe Mode due to malware that decided to get hold of my PC and firefox doesn't have my bookmarks
When I get back into normal mode I will read YouTube's disclaimer or try find something about the downloading of videos, surely if they wanted you to download it, they would give you the source file from a server?
Also, half the applications you see labelled "YouTube downloader" "YouTube Spider" etc are viruses so please do not download them and click on them unless you are 100% sure the file is legit.

Quickly browsed through YouTube but i didn't see anything...
Here is the site i use to keep my videos
It's about the best site i can find that actually works! Just follow the onscreen instructions and remember to change your file name
You do also get an FLV player that works the best instead of changing the file to a .avi file with yet another 'suspicious' "YouTube flv to avi converter" or something like that.

The only concern about downloading the video is whether or not the codes are present on their pages for you to use. If they are, then you can download and use just the video if you know how to do so. Afterall, YouTube's proprietary mark is on those videos and even some of those videos have their own trademarks. Ownership issues can get very messy when situations like this arise where more then one trademark is present. There have only been a few law suits brought against YouTube and videos have been pulled. Much too late to catch all the other identical videos that may have been posted or emailed.

Here's where it may get tricky depending on how the file name is listed. If a full path to it, then you're good to go. If just the file name, like blahblah.swf is listed, then copy and past this at the end of the URL folder you are current looking at in your browser. If it's something like http://www.url_here....s/blahblah.html, then remove the blahblah.html and replace it with the videos name. Once it comes up and plays in your browsers window, do a Ctrl+S and save it to the folder My Videos. There you have it on your computer. Just keep in mind any copyrights.
Hope I got all that right and I'm on the way to my turkey dinner now.
