Everyone knows that YouTube has a serious competitor in the Internet market and its none other than MegaVideo. MegaVideo claims to beat YouTube with its new set of features and services.
This service will let you make money online by just uploading and sharing videos and is itself a complete repository of online videos just like YouTube. Though MegaVideo is far from beating YouTube but people have already started using it to share great videos but the problem is that you cannot download MegaVideo videos unless you are a premium member. On the other hand we have services like Online YouTube Downloader which let you download a YouTube video instantly to your PC.
Download Videos From MegaVideo
However with this little trick bought to you by HelloGiri you can easily download and save MegaVideo videos to your computer and watch them offline whenever you like.
- Open your MegaVideo video in your browser and let it load fully
- After you are done watching the video online, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Settings -> View Files (For IE)
- Now you will get a large size file with long name and unknown type there
- Copy and paste that file at desktop, this file is the video file in flv format
- Rename it with flv extension, say e.g. MyMega.flv
I have tested the trick myself and it works great. See the screen below to get an idea what the file looks like and where to look for it (I tested the trick on Internet Explorer)
- Download and use FLV Player as you will be needing it to watch the downloaded videos.
- Remember to close all browsers and applications while trying to copy the video file
Make sure you perform this trick using Internet Explorer and not Firefox. For Firefox users, they will have to manually themselves locate the Temporary Internet Files folder in order to get this trick to work.
