      ok..saving online is fine.. but there are people using broadband connection having night unlimited plans. for them saving offline is good idea.

      thanks cgull8m for your valuable comment.

      Nice Hub, very easy to use. I just save the YouTube videos in the YouTube site itself in my favorites and in playlists. It is my online video storage option :) But some videos are taken down the above method will be very useful.
