YouTube offers video clip download, in H.264
A really great news from YouTube, according to Professor Lawrence Lessig'sLessig.org blog entry, YouTube is starting to offer direct downloadable video clips.
There are plenty of third party methods available for downloading YouTube clips, it is good to see that YouTube is offering this service officially.
From President-Elect Obama's Weekly Address YouTube video, simply click the "Click to download" link, and you will get the video saved to your computer.
For some unknown reason, a certain open-source extremist would of course be more interested in figuring out the META data of the video clips/photos, rather than watching the main content of it. I decided to do him a favour:
The file format is our beloved H.264, an industry standard video codec which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rate. (Sadly this beautiful video codec is hated by some open-source extremists (and/or Apple bashers) solely due to the association with Apple Inc.)
This is a very welcome development, and nice to see it coming direct from YouTube (for some videos). Without a doubt, there will be some video clips won't get the "click to download" option.
