  6. Once the download is done, you’ll find an FLV file in the location you saved it to. If you find that the downloaded movie has no file extension, rename it to add a dot and the extension FLV, so that get_movie reads as get_movie.flv

Remember: YouTube Downloader is a constantly updated product. Sometimes YouTube might change a few things on their site, and YouTube Downloader may no longer work. If that happens, check the YouTube Downloader site for a newer version.
