What’s the YouTube URL for 360p .MP4 version of videos?
Question by Jayaraj Perumalswamy /

How do I form the YouTube URL for 360p .MP4 version of the videos? E.g. if youtube URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=546xxOYv30o, how do I makeup the URL for the 360p .MP4 version?

I don’t want any YouTube downloaders or desktop clients, I just want the URL.

    I don't think there is a way you can form youtube url to download videos. I can only recommend you to use download managers or the sites listed above.

    try keepvid.com it is easy to use.

    most of the other options mentioned by others requirs u to have java installed and they r just ways of downloading ..
    I would like to tell you that youtube dont seem to provide u with mp3 its the other addons and other plugins those allow u to grab the audio and
    for that 360p link u need to use the control in the embedded player in youtube u get any links as the video is not stored in any seperate link its that player that seeks the low resolution video..
