How to Install ClipGrab in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, 10.10 and 10.04?

Although you can download YouTube videos while using a web browser and installing an addon for whatever the one that you're using with ease, but if you usually deal a lot with YouTube and their clip downloads, then wouldn't it be nice to have a dedicated application for that exact purpose?.

If your answer is "Yes", then you should check out ClipGrab. It's written in Qt-toolkit, looks awesome and importantly, lets you search and grab any YouTube videos (and many other similar online video sharing sites!) you want with ease.

Main features...

*. Search for video clips with thumbnail previews.

*. Change save location.

*. Choose the video container format: Original, MPEG4, OGG, WMV (Yikes!), MP3 and Ogg Theora (the official Ogg audio derivative for the video formats). 

*. Add audio meta-tags automatically (album, artist, etc).

*. Change between video resolutions (1080p, 720p, 480p, medium or low, etc).

*. Clipboard support: meaning that, whenever you copy or play a YouTube video in your web browser for instance, ClipGrab will be able to automatically fetch that clip and let you download it easily at later.

*. It also supports Vimeo, Dailymotion, MySpass, Clipfish and mare other online video sharing sites.

*. Use proxy servers (you naughty geek! :P).

*. Enable/Disable run in the system tray area.
