YouVid – Chrome Extension to Download Videos from YouTube

Recently, I wrote a post about the 10 best Chrome Extension for YouTube. These extensions were basically useful for people who spend a lot of their time on YouTube. I had not found a good and decent extension to download YouTube videos while watching them.

Thanks to a tip by Marco on my post, I came across YouVid a nice extension which helps users download videos from YouTube.

YouVid Chrome Extension Features


  • Install the YouVid extension on your Chrome browser.
  • Start looking up videos and play it. When the video starts playing you will see a download icon on the right hand corner on the address bar.
  • Download the video in .flv format.

Now that you have the video in FLV file format, read this post which shows you how to convert FLV format to other file formats like AVI, 3GP, MOV, MP4.

If you liked such tools then looking up 5 websites to convert YouTube videos in mp3 might also interest you.

Do use YouVid Chrome extension and drop in your comments.
