i download a music video from youtube, disconnect from my dial-up connection, then i play the video from youtube while not connectted to the internet,

so the music file must be saved somewhere on my hard drive, but where ??

Download the FireFox PlugIn UnPlug, and it'll directly download videos for you.

That might be true, I don't use a download manager, other than the Firefox one.

does not work,

when i try to download, i only get this file that is named "get video" , when i double click on this icon on my desktop, the pc does not know what to use to open it,

so i tried winamp and WMP, does not work,

the video on youtube is flash, should i download some kind of flash player ?

i already have flash player in firefox, IE i don't even bother with for anything dynamic any more,

i did get VLC media player, and it does play the downloaded video,

with a problem though,

the video has a yellow bar right down the middle of the screen, could this be a was the video producer scrambled the video ?

Actually, I doubt I could listen to that a few times. ;)

I downloaded it with Firefox and played it here, no yellow line in mine.

lol,

i see you are using a different player, i thought they were the same, tried to take a snapshot of mine and attach it, but the snapshot came out with the yellow bar, must be to encourage you to buy it,

i will check out the one that you suggested,

mine is:

VLC media player 0.8.6a(wxWidgets interface)

the VideoLAN Team

comon', you can get into this stuff, give it a few days, it's a very very catchy tune,

when i try to download your FLV player, i can download okay, it seems, but when i click on the icon to start it, i get some kind of flash window on the screen that seems like it is from the command line, and i don't know how to start the player,

You've got to rename the file "get_video" to "whatever.flv" -- or whatever it is you want to name your video with the extension ".flv"

Then you'll need a media player that plays FLV files.

As was already suggested, VLC Player is a good option for playing pretty much any video file.

There are also media players made for the FLV format.... but VLC Player is best I think.
