I only joined today (19-July-2008), and read the query today. There are a lot of people on the I'net who want to know - just google "youku download." My chief thought is that maybe someone who is more knowledgeable than I can figure out a way to automate it. That would really be helpful. I haven't been able to use any of the methods I have seen described successfully, so I decided to approach it in a different way. Once I had it down, I found it simple to execute.
