3outube Downloads YouTube Files With A Single URL Change

You've found a great set of bloopers and want to download them for future screenings. If you change the "Y" in the youtube.com address to "3," 3outube provides links for downloading that video in MP4 or FLV formats.

That's all there is to it, really — any YouTube video you want to download, just click on the YouTube logo in the lower-right corner of an embedded clip to get to the main YouTube page, then change the "Y" in YouTube.com to "3". Neat stuff, and it worked on all five of the test clips I sent its way.

    Now if only someone could make a bookmarklet to do it for you =)

    This function has been around for at least a year now... just add 'pwn' in the url before youtube. ie : www.pwnyoutube.com/etc
