I just tried E.M Free Youtube Downloader for the first time, but it didn't seem to work properly

I tried to catch a whole hour from SVT play, but I didn't manage to get it all, maybe it still only works for somewhat shorter clips?

Also I use Firefox and not Internet Explorer, maybe this had something to do with it

I'd double check, Magnus. I didn't think it was working first time, when it was actually downloading in the background, even though I couldn't seem to find it!

I use DVD Video Soft Free Studio to download videos and the audio from youtube. I love it and it always works. http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/ It's free and all you have to do is download the program. You can upgrade for a fee and it will do more, but it's still worth it for the free version.

Downloading stuff from Youtube is no problem, there are dozens of free programs that does this

Video streaming like SVT play is quite another thing though

Haven't had much trouble with SVT Play. The minor headaches that I've had have been with videos that aren't allowed to be viewed outside of Sweden. Just haven't saved them. :T I hear it could be possible to also get those but I've never bothered to check.

I also think that their player pages are truly user-friendly because they provide 'a link for an external player' (one just has to disable Flash to see the link (or look at the page source within a browser and search for 'external-player' to find the URL)). With that it's usually easy to download stuff.

Programs I use for saving (from SVT Play) are MPlayer (for http URLs) (could be done with VLC Media Player too) and RTMPDump (for rtmp URLs). I also occasionally use webvi command line client (for Linux only as far as I know :?).

I think there could be many other players or downloaders that can do the work. Just never bothered to search ('cause things have worked for me)... :oops:

And yes, all the programs I mentioned are free. :Y

I've tried Replay Media Catcher before for SVT play, but the free version only catches 75 % or so of the clip

I will try RTMPDump, thanks for the tip Juule

Ian, didn't you use Real Player before for downloading stuff?

I can't download clips from youtube anymore, I've tried using different programs but it seems youtube has done something to prevent downloading. :?

Anyone else have the same problem?

Atube Catcher, Kats' recommendation, seems to work fine [may be different in different countries, though].
