  • This would happen many times with you that you liked a video shared by your friend on facebook and wanted to download it. Then here we are, by this tutorial you cannot only save videos in your hard drive but can also from video streaming website like metacafe,dailymotion,veoh or yahoo. There are websites on the internet that will convert your video link into a download link but it has the following drawback
    • If you already watched the whole video and then you decide to download it to your computer it will take double time becuase you already have spent time watching it and now have to spend time downloading it to your hardrive.
    • Moreover, the download speeds are very slow and its very irritating to download the whole video again.
    But if you have already watched the whole video on the site then there is no need to waste the time on downloading it again. As we all know what we done internet it saves in the cache cookies so we just have to locate the cache folder of the browser where your streamed video is already saved you just have to copy paste the video file from cache folder to your desired location in your computer.

    Before reading this tutorial make sure that you have to unhide all your files and folders because cache folder of any browser is hidden. Here is the step by step tutorial with screenshots on how you can locate the cache folder for various browsers in various operating systems.

    In Google Chrome

    For windows Vista and Windows 7

    If you use google chrome in windows vista or windows 7 then here is the location of the cache folder


    C is the system root i.e. to which drive your windows is installed. If you are not sure about the system root you can replace C: with %systemroot%. Also do not forget to replace USER_NAME to your windows username to which you are logged in.

    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

    In Mozilla Firefox

    For Windows 7 and 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 Internet Explorer

    In case of Internet Explorer you need to go to Tools>Internet Options and then in Genreal tab click on Settings button.

    A new window will popup in front of you now click on View Files button.

    How To Find Your Video In Cache Folder

    Once you have found the cache folder of your browser the next thing you have to do is locate your video file. To do this arrange the files of the folder according to their size because video files are usually large in size. Open the largest files with VLC Player.Once you have found your video just copy it to your desired location.

    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.
