There’s no shortage of ways to download YouTube’s videos, including Lifehacker’s Better YouTube extension, the KeepVid webapp, and tons of similar tools. But YouTube is starting to offer a few official download links. Right now, the only obvious spot for them is in President-Elect Barack Obama’s ChangeDotGov channel, in the lower-left by the play button (although they don’t show up on the official channel page, you’ll have to click the video titles to grab from their standard player pages). The videos pull down as decent-quality MP4s, and it’s the same download whether you switch to HD viewing or not. It makes sense that government-provided videos would be available for free downloads and offline viewing. If you spot the download links anywhere else on YouTub>, share with the crows in the comments.
