Here's the scoop:

- Right now I have good i-net bandwidth.
- Soon, I won't.

I want to capture a youtube video and put the video file on my laptop, so i can play it back later - without the internet.

What's this even called?

Anyone know of software that can do this?

Not free: TubeSock

You could save it directly using the Firefox extension DownloadHelper.

Or with your iPad, there is a TubeDownloader app. I think that is what it is called. I don't know why Apple approved it, but you can download YouTube videos with it. Or, if you have it jailbroken, there are a few YouTube downloading apps like MxTube.

Unfortunately, my app TubeOrganizer does not have downloading capabilities, because Apple said they would reject such apps.

Check out

Free app lets you download 4 videos, but the paid is unlimited.

Good Luck
