  • You can not import youtube videos into Windows Movie Maker. If you try a window will pop up saying"Windows Movie Maker can not import this file because it is in a format Windows Movie Maker doesn't understand. Windows Movie Maker can not play FLV files so you can not make a video out of FLVs.

    I'm using a free flv downloader. And it's easy to use.

    You needn't get the url when downloading the vid.

    Press "start recording"

    Click in the vid you plan to download. The downloader will automatically save it to your hard disk.

    Then you can watch it with the bounded flv player.

    Here is the link.

    EZ - How To Download and Convert a YouTube Video

    Youtube thumbnail


    YouTube flv (flash video) download sites (I like this one)

    convert online & then download sites (easier I guess, but much slower and often errors are common)

    WinFF video converter (freeware) converts flv, wmv, avi, mov, etc

    File formats supported by Windows Movie Maker

    You can download RealPlayer 11 and it 'll enable you to download the video by merely placing the mouse over it.. Or else go to and paste the YouTube url in the required place.The download 'll begin instantaneously.

    Get realplayer. Once you have it every video you view, you just move your mouse over it and a tab pops up which gives you a download option which stores vids in a library.
