If you frequent YouTube, at some point you’ll probably go to watch your favorite video only to find that it’s been removed. Videos can be removed for a variety of reasons, like YouTube removing them because of a copyright issue, or even owners removing their clips.

By using Delutube, you still have a chance of getting those deleted clips back.  Think of it as a Google Cache for your Videos.  Google Cache can pull up a webpage that’s no longer available, and then you can go view it as a cached version. Delutube will work if the video hasn’t been permanently deleted from the servers.

Delutube

All you have to do is find the video ID that’s found at the end of the URL, go to Delutube and enter in that ID, and if it hasn’t been permanently deleted, you’ve hit a jackpot!

KissyoutubeAnother service out there called Kiss YouTube provides an easy way to download all of your favorite videos.  All you have to do is enter in the word “kiss” right before YouTube in the URL so it would look something like http://www.kissyoutube.com/watch?v=nsjuPX8C2lo.

After pressing enter, you’ll be taken to the Kiss YouTube page where you’ll have the option to “download now” in flv format, or send to your friends. They also provide a download link for the video in case you want to post to a forum, blog, IM, etc.

Because they’re using the same logo as YouTube, they might run into some issues. But for now, it’s one of the simplest ways I know of for downloading your favorites. Just type “kiss.”

  1. I’ll always stick with Google videos! It has a fast, clean interface, good sized library, and best of all it lets me download all videos in .mp4 format! I can put them on my Zune without a 3rd party converter!

    I didn’t realize downloading videos from Google Video put it in a MP4 format, but that is really awesome. A lot of these different sites only offer the FLV files for the videos which means you’ll need to download a player that can handle it. MP4 is a lot more universal.

    Google Video is probably my favorite as well!

  3. Thanks, dude. People like you are the reason that PCs are affordable and powerful. People like you keep the internet accessible relevant and steadily developing.

  4. Looks like Delutube doesn’t work anymore, but there is a similar site called [yuivo.com] that will track your youtube favorites for you. If you enter your Youtube username, it will save all your current favorites, and any time you go back it will let you know if any are missing from last time and offer alternatives.

  5. Is there a way i can be alerted when youtube videos i have embedded in my websites are removed from youtube by the author?
