I want to see this video in slower space here. So I need to download the video but I cannot get this addon here installed because of the change in Google Chrome browser. How can I download Youtube videos?

Just do a search for chrome youtube downloader. I have seen plenty. –  Josiah Dec 28 '12 at 0:06
@AceLegend I have found online services but I want to get something to my browser. –  hhh Dec 28 '12 at 0:14
I understand. But I have seen plenty of extensions. Although it might have been on Firefox. I'll look around. –  Josiah Dec 28 '12 at 0:19
Oh. That is a problem. Hmm. Well, this isn't perfect. But it might do you some good. It keeps you from doing lots of work, just put pwn in front of youtube.com deturl.com –  Josiah Dec 28 '12 at 0:26
@hhh If you can't get extensions for some reason, there should be some software you can get to download youtube videos as a last resort. I've seen literally dozens of "youtube video downloader" variants for Windows, there's bound to be a few for OS X. –  Thomas Dec 28 '12 at 1:07

Online Service

Go to www.filsh.net and insert your youtube URL. No offline plugin or java required.


Use the userscript YousableTubeFix. You will get a download button below every youtube video.

Since Chrome 21 the behavior userscripts are installed was changed. There are still ways to install it:

  • Download the userscript you want to install
  • Open the URL chrome://chrome/extensions
  • Drag the userscript xyz.user.js file and drop it to the page above


  • Install Tampermonkey first


  • add --enable-easy-off-store-extension-install in the target line of your Chrome shortcut

Since I have used UserScripts.org site earlier for LoU gaming, I tested this: YousableTubeFix worked! +1 You need to install Tampermonkey from Chrome Store to get it working. Now I have the video but cannot see it slowly with QuickTime perhaps iMovie handles this? –  hhh Dec 28 '12 at 3:02

Your best option is to use this add-on in Chrome, it will place a download button just below the YouTube video.

Happy downloading!

Well, I can not verify this, but it is worth a shot. Use deturl.com to convert your movie. Or simply add pwn in front of the youtube url. Example: "http://pwnyoutube.com/watch=whatever"

For the slow-mo effect, it is quite simple. As long as it exports the format into something iMovie can handle, use that.

Simply create a project, drop that video in, double click the clip, and change the duration. It will run it in slower or faster motion. If you need anything else let me know.

Have you tested VLC? I slowed the movie down by five times (most allowed slowing down) but it is still too fast. Can you slow down the video more with iMovie? –  hhh Dec 28 '12 at 3:26
You're saying you changed the duration as long as it lets you? I wasn't aware that there was a limit. –  Josiah Dec 28 '12 at 14:15
I mean did you try on iMovie? You didn't make that clear. –  Josiah Dec 28 '12 at 14:17

[poor] Embed Plus for Youtube addon (no downloading but slowing down without adjusting)

There is an app in the Chrome Store that allows you to see videos in slower space: Embed Plus for Youtube here. It misses the feature to adjust the speed so not perfect to watch your video. It has some sort of Get feature that allows you to embed videos but cannot find anything to really download, example here, sorry.

[promising] Nixda's addon and some external video player such as VLC

I used the Nixda's suggested addon and VLC but the video is too fast even after slowing it down with VLC like:

visit www.keepvid.com, type in the url, run the java applet and you will be given the download links.
