Top 10 Web Apps to Download YouTube Videos in MP4 or 3GP Format

I can watch YouTube videos on my BlackBerry with Bolt Browser, but the effect is not so good, since the GPRS speed is low and the player is not available to watch videos on full screen, what is more, sometimes I want to keep some videos, thus I often download the YouTube videos in 3GP or MP4 format, and then watch them on my BlackBerry.

Below 10 web apps are available to download YouTube videos in 3GP or MP4 format for free, among which, some of them are websites, some of them are Firefox add-ons, and some of them are mobile websites, but all of them are free.

1. Easy YouTube downloader
