There are several solutions to download YouTube movies to your desktop so you can edit them or simply view them later. But none of them are as easy to use as KickYouTube. All you have to do is add “kick” before “youtube.com” in the url of the movie you are watching.

So if you enjoyed Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address so much that you want to save it offline simply go this this url:

and then add ‘kick’, like this:

You will be presented with several download options including iPhone optimized MP4, FLV, MP4 and PSP formats. More options are possible but disabled right now because of the avalanche of users giving this service a try now.
