Download Online Videos without using any tool

While surfing Facebook, Youtube and other such websites we all like some videos that we come across but unfortunately we cannot download them. Though Youtube downloader or other tools are present to download videos from Youtube, but what about Facebook, yahoo and other websites? We can’t have such tool for each website.

But now it is possible (don’t be surprised we are not going to provide you links for such downloader for each website). We are going to tell you a trick to download such videos. There are some drawbacks associated which we will overcome for you:

• If you already watched the whole video and then you decide to download it to your computer it will take double time because you already have spent time watching it and now have to spend time downloading it to your hard drive.

• Moreover, the download speeds are very slow and it is very irritating to download the whole video again.

When the video is streamed it gets automatically saved in the cache folder of the browser. We just have to locate that folder and have to copy paste the video file from the same to the desired location.

We are providing you steps to make it easy for you.

If you are using Google chrome with windows vista and windows 7

Location of cache folder:


C: here is the drive in which the operating system has been installed.

For Windows Xp Users:

In windows XP the Google chrome cache folder can be found at C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome

If you are using Mozilla Firefox with windows7 or windows vista

The temporary cache folder can be located at C:\Users\USER_NAME \AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

For Window XP Users

The temporary cache folder can be located at C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME \Local Settings\Application Data

In case of internet explorer

Go to Tools>Internet Options and then in General tab click on Settings button under Browsing History label.

A new window will popup and click view files and locate your video files.

Note: There are usually some data files with names like data_1 in cache folder. Do not open them with VLC, open the rest of the files with VLC and you will easily find your video.

These steps will let you download your favorite videos without any problems.

  1. this small software will do this job for u

    It automatically scans the entire cache of Internet Explorer, Mozilla-based Web browsers (Including Firefox), Opera, and Chrome, and then finds all video files that are currently stored in it.It allows you to easily copy the cached video files into another folder for playing/watching .
