UnPlug Lets You Download Web Videos to Your Computer

Download of the Day: UnPlug

Our friends at lifehacker dug up this download that's awesome for when you see a video on YouTube or MySpace that you want to keep on your computer and have access to when you're offline.

UnPlug, a Firefox add-on, puts an adorable fish icon in your toolbar, and when you're on a page with an embedded video you want to keep, just click the fish and a download page will come up. The files save in flash, so if the files don't play initially, you can download the media player VLC to watch them. Now you are free to obsessively watch hilarious gigglesugar videos.

To learn how to post your favorite downloads to the Download of the Day group,

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  1. First of all, join the Download of the Day group
  2. Click "Create and Share!" on the left hand side
  3. Choose "Blog"
  4. Give your photo a Title
  5. Leave the category as "general"
  6. Change the channel to "technology and gadgets"
  7. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this photo was "Download of the Day")
  8. Click on the "Add Image" link below the "body" box
  9. A popup window will happen - click on "Browse" to find your image on your computer
  10. Once you have the image chosen, click "Submit"
  11. The popup will show you your image, choose size: "normal" - if you want, you can give it a title (which will show up as a caption)
  12. Click "Insert" and the popup will go away
  13. Your "body" box will now have some text in it. Leave it as is. If you want to add some text before the picture telling me why you love the download, do it before the code that has appeared.
  14. Click Submit

So join the Download of the Day group and share information about all your favorite downloads! Yours just might end up on the geeksugar homepage!
