Tools And Addons For YouTube


YouTube has become one of the most popular sites in the world in a very short time by providing a simple way to upload and share content.

However, there are a number of services available now that will make it easier to upload videos, find deleted videos, make videos play even smoother etc. Here’s a review of some of the best YouTube tools you may find useful.

Delutube – Find Deleted YouTube Videos

DeltubeEvery now and then YouTube deletes a video, normally because of copyright issues. But, there is a way to still watch the deleted videos which is quite clever.

Delutube have put together a script which will allow you to watch deleted videos. All you have to do is enter the ID of the YouTube video that has been deleted by YouTube, and it will magically start playing. Most recent videos will work, but you may have problems with older videos as YouTube eventually physically deletes videos.

YouRipper – Download YouTube Videos


There are many tools for downloading YouTube videos but I find YouRipper to be the easiest to use. YouRipper also has its own video player that makes it easy to add YouTube videos to a blog or a website.

YouTube UploaderYouTube Uploader 1.1 -Convert Any Video To YouTube Friendly Format

Although YouTube can handle most file formats, optimizing your video before you upload it can pay dividents. YouTube Uploader 1.1 is a free tool that will convert any video to a YouTube friendly video format with optimal size and quality, so that anyone watching your videos will see your work in its best light.

SpeedbitSpeedbit Video Accelerator – Smooth & Speedup YouTube Videos

Speedbit Video Accelerator works on a similar principle to popular download managers by opening multiple connections to YouTube videos as soon as you start playing. The benefits of this is it that if you are on a slow connection or even a dialup connection, then you videos will start playing quicker and the the playback itself willl be smoother.

TubeSockTubeSock – YouTube On Your iPod

TubeSock will download YouTube videos and saves them to your video iPod, Mac, or PlayStation Portable. It’s not free ($15 – but the trial version will do 30 secs for free), but I don’t know of a free app that will automatically convert the video using the codecs and bitrates best for each device. It even allows you to preview the video before it does the conversion.

Search The Tube – Find YouTube Videos For Your Site

Search The TubeThe YouTube search engine is pretty good, but the Search The Tube service is a good way to find YouTube videos for your website, blog or profile. This service is dedicated just to finding videos and provides about 100 thumbnail results very quickly. – Scripts For Improving YouTube

If you’re a bit more technical then you may find this collection of scripts from useful that perform useful tasks like improving YouTube embedded code, allow you to view Yahoo Music videos in YouTube, removes ads etc

PODZINGER – Search Within YouTube Videos

PodZingerBy day, PODZINGER is a speech-to-text search engine that uses this functionality to search YouTube videos for terms that are actually mentioned inside the audio. The service also allows you to setup an RSS alert so that if a new video is uploaded which includes those words, then you will get an automatic alert!

I hope you found this list if YouTube tools useful. If you did please remember to add it your favourite bookmarking sites so that you can find it easily later.

    Hey Tony, great stuff.

    I’m definitely going to check out YouTube uploader asap since we upload a lot of videos. A tool to optimize that sounds like a very good thing. We just got our first 15 videos up there but planning to do a couple a day beginning in the next week or two.

    Have an awesome day!
