Youku: how to download HD video?

Post by Kz » Mar 30th, '12, 02:34

I discovered Youku having a lot of variety program I like. However, streaming HD video is sometimes sluggish.
I know how to download Ipod resolution video, but is there any way to download original quality HD file?
There must be a way since I sometimes see full lengths Youku video here.

Thanks for your help!

HD video normally means higher resolution than standard-definition (SD) video and most commonly involves display resolutions of 1,280×720 pixels (720p) or 1,920×1,080 pixels (1080i/1080p).With IDM you can Download it.

Youku has it's own downloader. However, it only downloads video for lower resolution (one of Iphone)
Is there any way to download original HD format?
I konw many people share HD version of video from Youku here.
How do they do that?

Maybe with this? http://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/youku-hd ... ?l=en&mt=8 but there aren't many video clips at the moment.

Youku HD streaming is available in Mainland China only. Unless there is a different proxy setting and/or use of other paid shareware to download in HD resolution, chances of getting it is pretty slim.

I always use Acethinker Video Downloader to save videos from Youku to my computer for offline viewing, free and works pretty well for me. It's a free web-based application to download online videos, you don't have to install anything. :D

I'm late to this topic too, but if anybody else ever has this problem, you-get can grab HD videos from Youku with no trouble at all.

I ever downloaded jdrama from youku using software called Youku Downloader, I'm not sure if there is HD option (probably no)
If you're using Mozilla Browser, I think you can download HD using Download Helper Addons from Mozilla :-)
