sometimes there are 100 people trying to backup at the same time. Be
patient, click GO and wait for your turn.
Common Problem 2: I don't know what to do with the get_video file
that I got from SaveTube
When the download is finished, just rename the file from get_video
to somevideo.flv ... Just add a .flv extension, then use an FLV Player
to play it.
The Free Applian FLV Player Works well.

Common FLV extension problem / If opens in MS-DOS
Some users report not seeing file name extensions or having their
get_video open in MS DOS. Don't worry! This happens because Windows
doesn't find an extension of the file so it automatically reads it with
MS DOS. You will have to rename the file, but if you don't see
extensions, just follow these steps.
