leave a comment »


Just today while wandering on the internet and by request of one of my friend, i realized that the method i told about to download google videos is no longer working. eew! .. We need something else to work out, so googled around and found 2 things.

Tutorial 1

  1. First of all make sure that there is bookmark Toolbar is shown on Firefox, if not then click anywhere near the address bar and select Bookmark Toolbar.
  2. Now, click on the bookmark toolbar and click on “New Bookmark”
  3. In the “Name” specify anything you want, i use “Google Video DL”
  4. in the location bar .. paste this javascript:if(frames[0].document.getElementById('macdownloadlink')!=null){window.location.href=frames[0].document.getElementById('macdownloadlink')}else{alert('You are not visiting Google Video or the current video can\'t be downloaded.')};
  5. Press OK
  6. now open any video on google page and just when it starts buffering, click on the bookmark link, you’ll get the option to download the file as avi 🙂

Here is the other one, relatively simple.

  1. Go to google videos and open any video link.
  2. on your right side, you can see “Download Video Manually” link. Click on it and you’ll get GVP file to download, relatively of small size, i.e in some KB.
  3. When the GVP file has been downloaded, use any TEXT EDITOR which support ANSI (Notepad will work fine) to open it.
  4. in the file you’ll see url:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx … text, copy this and paste in your broswer. The browser will prompt you for download the AVI file 🙂
  5. Working na!!

Have FUN!!!!
