[Ubuntu] Download Youtube & Facebook videos without Apps

why do you want to download it and it's already on your machine ?! :D Just go to YouTube or Facebook and watch the video for the first time (make sure it's all streamed)

Full streamed video from YouTube 

 

DO NOT refresh or close the browser (I tested it with Firefox and Chromium)

then navigate on you Ubuntu machine to the path "/tmp/", and find the video there named "Flashxxxx"  Ta Daaaa if you can't find it check this post

The video on my machine 

 

copy it and rename it to whatever you want and append the extension ".flv" then you can watch it, or even put it in a folder you wont open again :D

Watching the video locally 

 

the same thing tested with Facebook videos.

Cool :D , BTW congratulations for the new theme , i like it much :)
Thanx, etfaddalo :)
nice :D but as I remember this was also in Windows, any fully streamed video is saved automatically in path: C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ but how to find the file? this is what I can't remember :D maybe we can sort icons by date and check the last 2 minutes files :D
newer versions of flash players on Ubuntu doesn't save the files there, will check where is it...
didn't work..
it doesnt work with the new version of Adobe Flash.. bad luck guys.. you can still try your browser's cache
[…] the flash version 10 as I can remember, the old method of going to the temp folder /tmp/ and copying the video from there is not working, you will not […]
