Downloading a video in MP4 format in Google Chrome browser


I found this quite useful especially to make the videos  I like play in my iphone/ipod when I am offline. To have this feature in your chrome browser, follow the below simple steps.

Go to Chrome BookMark Manager and create a new bookmark with a name you like - "Download Videos" or something like that. For address field paste the below javascript code

javascript:window.location.href = 'http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=' + swfArgs['video_id']+ "&fmt=18" + "&l=" + swfArgs['l'] + "&sk=" + swfArgs['sk'] + '&fmt_map' + swfArgs['fmt_map'] + '&t=' + swfArgs['t'];
 
Note: The above bookmark works for youtube, if you want to make this work on other website, please change the url
 
Save the bookmark now.

Once you are done with this, you can go to any website that has a video embedded in it (like youtube, metacafe etc) and start playing the video. Once the video starts playing, just click your "Download Videos" bookmark and you will see the video getting downloaded in mp4 format in the Chrome's download status bar
 
Once the video is downloaded, connect your iphone/ipod to your computer and open itunes. You should be seeing the downloaded video in the video section now (provided you have the download folder added to itunes)

Motorola Droid

I am proud iPhone owner ever since its first launch in 2007 June. I was so happy with the first version of it that I even upgraded to the next release, the 3G one. But off late I was always feeling that this iPhone needs some competition, else it will be a monopoly (nothing against Apply - that is the company that I adore). Though we have seen quite a few smart phone's after iphone, like the Palm Pre, Blackberry Storm, HTC Touch - None of them could stop the iPhone march. The latest product to attempt to compete with iPhone is Droid from Motorola which is based on Google's popular mobile platform - Android.

I came across this Droid ad and its raising everybody's eyebrows. The makers have made a good spoof of iPhone. Not sure how Motorola will keep up with the expectation that its trying to create. For now, enjoy this ad. Droid is expected to hit market soon with Verizon

 In addition to this, Motorola is also coming up with one more Android based phone for TMobile - CLIQ. This also looks quite promising. A overview of this phone can be seen below. CLIQ is coming to market later this month

 

Other Android based phones hit to market soon are Sprint Samsung Moment and T-Mobile Samsung Behold II .LG, DELL and Sony Ericssion are also coming up with their versions of Smart phones based on Android
