Technical Tips on Downloading from YouTube

Just to help Internet Activists / Bloggers / Video Activism fellows here, I had been asked some times how to take video down from YouTube & LiveLeaks etc and save on harddisk or CD/DVDs. Obviously this can be done but YouTube etc, don't like you to do so because they want everyone to go back to their site every time.

However this can be a problem because:

  • YouTube is blocked in some countries
  • YouTube is slow some times
  • You need to up-load else where
  • You need to keep a copy
  • etc
There are websites via which you can download any YouTube or similar video stored online e.g., you just have to cut and paste YouTube's URL into these websites and they will let you save the video file by helping you to create a file as they take the video Flash Video steam from YouTube:

famiLEE LEEgime's Protected A-REAr?

What's famiLEE LEEgime mata's PROTECTED AREA?

Is that the cowardice LEEgime's own Ass REAr?

Republic of Singapore Constitution Part IV
provided for Fundamental Liberties.

Article 9 of this Part IV - Liberty of The Person said:

Liberty of the person
9.(1) No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty save in accordance with law. (2) Where a complaint is made to the High Court or any Judge thereof that a person is being unlawfully detained, the Court shall inquire into the complaint and, unless satisfied that the detention is lawful, shall order him to be produced before the Court and release him. (3) Where a person is arrested, he shall be informed as soon as may be of the grounds of his arrest and shall be allowed to consult and be defended by a legal practitioner of his choice. (4) Where a person is arrested and not released, he shall, without unreasonable delay, and in any case within 48 hours (excluding the time of any necessary journey), be produced before a Magistrate and shall not be further detained in custody without the Magistrate’s authority. (5) Clauses (3) and (4) shall not apply to an enemy alien or to any person arrested for contempt of Parliament pursuant to a warrant issued under the hand of the Speaker. (6) Nothing in this Article shall invalidate any law —
(a) in force before the commencement of this Constitution which authorises the arrest and detention of any person in the interests of public safety, peace and good order; or
(b) relating to the misuse of drugs or intoxicating substances which authorises the arrest and detention of any person for the purpose of treatment and rehabilitation,
by reason of such law being inconsistent with clauses (3) and (4), and, in particular, nothing in this Article shall affect the validity or operation of any such law before 10th March 1978.
Further in the Rep of Singapore Constitution Part IV, Article 12 - provided Equality, and Article 13 - provided Freedom of Movement:

Equal protection
12. —(1) All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law. (2) Except as expressly authorised by this Constitution, there shall be no discrimination against citizens of Singapore on the ground only of religion, race, descent or place of birth in any law or in the appointment to any office or employment under a public authority or in the administration of any law relating to the acquisition, holding or disposition of property or the establishing or carrying on of any trade, business, profession, vocation or employment. (3) This Article does not invalidate or prohibit —
(a) any provision regulating personal law; or
(b) any provision or practice restricting office or employment connected with the affairs of any religion, or of an institution managed by a group professing any religion, to persons professing that religion.
Prohibition of banishment and freedom of movement
13. —(1) No citizen of Singapore shall be banished or excluded from Singapore. (2) Subject to any law relating to the security of Singapore or any part thereof, public order, public health or the punishment of offenders, every citizen of Singapore has the right to move freely throughout Singapore and to reside in any part thereof.

In the incident on 20.Nov.2007 there is video and photographic evidence that the SPF violated the constitutional rights of Ms Chee Siok Chin & Mr. John Tan, that others were allowed free passing of their claimed Protected Area totally unobstructed, but Ms Chee & Mr Tan were abducted away by force. Without any good reason.

  1. They were both unarmed, not causing any danger to Asean Summit nor the public.
  2. They were just like others passing through to the opened hotel to have a meal.
  3. They were not protesting not distributing any flyers
  4. There was no Curfew imposed in that area

SPF clearly violated Rep of Singapore Constitution Articles 9 & 13 by their barbaric abductions, and performed law enforcement in violation of Equality violating Article 12 that they had obviously abducted Ms Chee & Mr. Tan selectively and exclusively. When others were enjoying free passage of that opened public road.

SPF prevented Mr. Tan from taking his video but allowed for foreign media journalists to do the same, this is additional violation of Article 9 and 12.

The famiLEE LEEgime are desperate cowardice feeling insecure all the time. These citizens are owners of this country posing no threat nor harm and were just merely barbarically prevented from having their meal at an opened place of business, by a very violating obstruction follow by abduction. Ms Chee & Mr. Tan exhibited so much of tolerance with their unjust distress and harassments, they tried to be reasonable and wasted their time talking to these UNCIVILIZED civil servants, who eventually adopted unconstitutional abuse of force to abduct them from a public place against their will and held them for about an hour in a mini-bus, causing distress and anger of these victims.

These famiLEE LEEgime matas are absurd cowards behaving like street thugs and kidnappers. Ms Chee Siok Chin & Mr John Tan were obviously unafraid and strongly asserting their rights, but the thugs in blue and white were obviously nervous, as seen these video footage.

Big group of famiLEE LEEgime matas turned up to hound on 2 peacefully walking citizen on a public street, they neglected all other passers and exclusively picked on this 2 people who offer absolutely no treat to anybody. They came prepared in blue and white with many video cameras rolling:

They let this yellow dressed lady past completely neglecting her:

Secret Society? No SPF name nor logo, SECURITY? Watch Man? Street gang? Thug? Kidnapper? This is a proper SPF warrant card? Can exercise law enforcement power with this card? Any street con-man or terrorist could easily produce such a phony warrant card! Don't let these thugs fool the public!

Several other people past in all sorts of directions, vehicles past, and matas neglected them all:

Ms Chee found that the mata have no lawful reason to stop her and she walked on.

Her destination Shangri-La Hotel is ahead but the thugs in uniform won't let her get to where she can lawfully and freely go.

Another lady obviously past this so called PROTECTED AREA freely pushing a stroller, and thugs didn't border her at all:

However these thugs just picked on Ms Chee and she once again got stopped by the thugs:

Yet another lady walking freely in this frame:

Now this Superintendent Micheal Tan appeared, before Philip Ong's disappearance, note that they are wearing different colored T-shirts, I guess the territory of PROTECTED AREA is divided between 2 different teams of thugs differentiated by color of T-shirts. You note that the thugs inside the mini-bus later wears full uniforms, so they are another team. F

From here on Philip Ong's blue T-shirt team handed over to Micheal Tan's white T-shirt team. Micheal Tan was the one giving the order of abduction according to the audio captured.

White T-shirt female thugs began to show up from here:

Another phony warrant card! Just saying SECURITY without any organization nor logo:

Thug's leader ordering his thugs to bring in the abduction vehicle:

This hand signal was Micheal Tan calling in the group of White T-shirt female thugs:

Thugs in white now beginning to conduct their abduction:

Ms Chee caught Micheal Tan touching her from behind (time code in clip 00:08:15) she shouted NO TOUCHING!

Micheal Tan tried to deny touching:

Clip time code 00:08:22, Micheal Tan ordered his thugs: Please execute your plan.

The famiLEE LEEgime's abduction then proceeded on as planned:

famiLEE LEEgime's thugs forcing their victims into the abduction vehicle with Ms Chee first then Mr John Tan later.

Meanwhile other road users were freely passing the same PROTECTED AREA!

Philip Ong now reappear to begin action against Mr. John Tan:

The famiLEE LEEgime's abductors got rough together with pushing and pulling to get their victims into a plain cyan mini-bus, which has got no SPF logo or any identification markings:

William Tan turning back in his move to abduct John right now:

sir you are in a protected area! ?????? huh? then why is my civil rights not being protected? what kind of protected area is this?

On the left side one white T-shirt thug tries to prevent the female photographer from taking pictures:

This is William Tan signally to his thug for Mr. John Tan to be pushed into the mini-bus:

This was Mr. John Tan losing his camera control as his abductors pushed him inside of the mini-bus:

Abductors' mini-bus drove off with their victims trapped inside for nearly one hour taking them to destinations against their will.

did we do anything wrong? The Answer was NO, are we under arrest? The Answer was also NO.
so why are you forcing us into this van and where are you taking us? No one could answer!

One uniformed thug of famiLEE LEEgime began to attack Mr. John Tan to prevent him from taking this video, his name could be Peter Chan:

Ouch!!! Poor John got roughed up for 2nd time!

Look at the face of SSG Peter Chan, how he enjoyed bulling poor John Tan!

After few minutes of struggling, John still managed to continue filming, and Peter received instructions from his superior thugs:

Here comes the ironical part that Ms Chee was calling 999 police emergency number to report that she and her friend had been kidnapped by 4 men plus one woman dressed in police uniforms!

I figured from the video abductors took their victims along Orchard past Istana, then Selegie Road, then Serangoon Road; through Little India; passing Lavender. At this point Ms Chee felt motion sickness and almost throwing up as a result of her abduction ordeal, the reason was the abductor's driving was jerky all the way.

She asked the thugs for a plastic bag so that she could throw up inside, but she wasn't given any. Poor Ms Chee suffered about half and hour of motion sickness. And Mr. John Tan eventually got enough of these lame thug's craps and he fought his way out of this mini-bus successfully. That followed by the thugs sending Ms Chee back to Orchard and let her go free.
