YouTube Now In Hindi!

Posted by madhavkobal on 20/08/2009

YouTube’s Hindi user interface features a localised homepage and search functions, allowing users to create and share videos, discover the most popular and relevant videos, and connect with other Indian and global users, says the company. YouTube in Hindi is supported by Google Translate which enables the translation of the navigation and menu between Hindi and English.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve the online video experience of our users,” said Vinay Goel, head, products, Google India. “Google India is uniquely positioned to tackle the challenges in bringing the benefits of the Internet to the emerging users because India is home to around one billion such users. We are committed to promoting the creation and consumption of content in Indian languages, and the launch of this edition of YouTube is a positive step in this direction.”

The entire suite of local features such as promoted videos, featured videos, and help centre, user support and community features such as video ratings, sharing and content flagging will be available to users on the YouTube Hindi interface.

YouTube allows anyone with access to a video recording device such as a Web camera or a cell phone to create content, connect and converse with each other through the medium of video.

Download + Convert YouTube Videos the Easiest Way Possible

Posted by madhavkobal on 20/08/2009

A few months ago, I posted here a tutorial on downloading or saving Flash/YouTube Videos on Linux the easy way. If the previous instruction is really difficult for you to grasp, then you should read this latest entry very carefully 🙂 Because now I’m going to show you how in the simplest way possible you can download a YouTube video plus convert it at the same time. –So easy that the only requirement is a web browser (no need for add-ons) and probably .01% of your brain.

So let’s get down to business:

Step 1: Visit YouTube and select a video to watch.

Step 2: In the URL address box, type pwn before “youtube“, and press enter:

Step 3: You will then be redirected to where you will be presented with two download links. One is an FLV file and the other one is an MP4 file for the happy iPod/iPhone owners.

Step 4: Click on the link of your choice and save the file.

Step 5: There’s no more step five. Enjoy! 🙂
