Okay, it is just not fun to play video online with slow Internet connection – to have smooth video playback, the best way it is still downloading the whole clip locally and playback. However Google Video does not provide a link for one to download. The movie is played by Google Video Player, which is Online Flash FLV player.

New Method: The easiest method now to download google video is to use online video download service to expose the real URL.

Old Method:
Good news is that Felipe Cepriano over at FelipeCN has found a quick way to download Google Video. The key is to unescape the parameter of the Google Player URL by using a javascript function. In simple instruction:

  • Go to Google Video and find a video.
  • View the page source code and search for the keyword ‘googleplayer
  • Copy and paste the videoUrl parameter (all of the characters after the keyword ‘videoUrl=’)
  • Press Ctrl-L to go to URL location bar. Type Javascript:unescape(”videoUrl”) where videoUrl should be the last parameter you have copied into the clipboard.
  • It should output the actual URL on the broswer, copy and paste that URL onto your browser location bar again to download the FLV movie.
  • Play it with a FLV Player.
