Flash Capture is an Internet Explorer add-on that lets you save YouTube videos

Flash Capture is a simple to use Internet Explorer add-on that enables you to download and convert videos from YouTube. This small program is very easy to install and use, therefore, any user, novice or professional, will be able to handle its intuitive interface.

Although it's not my first choice when it comes to downloading my favorite YouTube videos, Flash Capture offers you a simpler way to complete the task as it doesn't require you to copy and paste URLs on other programs. While playing the video within the browser, a new menu appears over the Flash player; from there you can choose the output format for the downloaded file or take snapshots of the video.

A good thing about using this application is that it supports such a great variety of output formats and, unlike other programs from its category, it doesn't come with download limitations.

Unfortunately, Flash Capture brings you several disadvantages: it works only with Internet Explorer, sometimes fails to download videos, and the built-in player often fails to play the saved videos. With that being said, I honestly believe that you can find better solutions for downloading YouTube videos.
