    Did you save FLV files to your computer? What does that have to do with your bandwidth limit?

    It is some youtube vidoes and yes I know of http://www.ghacks.net/2009/08/10/download-youtube-videos

    Yes web sites , third party apps,plug ins and so on how to save it.

    Problem is by bandwidth limit is over and cannot go back to site to save it like I do in the past like Keepvid or SaveVid. Most of the time I use the firefox add on to save it .

    But the problem is my bandwidth limit is over and cannot go back to site .

    If you can't save them, then they're not on your computer to find. YouTube is a streaming service. I don't believe you can download the videos legally anyway. Watching them uses bandwidth.

    On a old windows 98 computer you could check your temp folder and copy and paste the file ( from the windows temp folder ) and re-name it as a flv and play it yes you could play it if you have a flv player.

    Most video on youtube are flv files or flash files.


    Note it was long ago and I got it to work on windows 98 but windows vista the temp folder is very different.
