I've been using YouTube Grabber. You can download this software for free, just visit and type "YouTube Grabber". After downloading the file, run the file for installation. It is easy as 1-2-3. I will assume that you already installed the software on your computer unit. Ooopssss..... Let me remind you that YouTube Graber comes with limited video file extension. It can only download and save the video file as FLV, HD, and MP3/MP4. If you want to have different grabber that can create an AVI extension file you might need to pay a certain amount to purchase the software.
