Is there any way I can save YouTube videos as files on my computer? I'm thinking no, but perhaps there is a "secret method" I don't know. I'd like to use a couple for a presentation, and it would be nice to save it to a disk rather than going to the website.

Any help will be muchly appreciated!

Bec

Bec:

You should be able to right click on the video, and then it will give you a save as or something...
Let me try it and I will let you know.

OK Bec. Right under the video there is a link that says save to favorites. if you put your mouse on that, and do a Right Click instead of a normal left click, you will get a window that pops up. Just click on save as, or save to download folder. That is it.

This will work for youtube. You need to use firefox though.

Just for downloading, or is this also for replaying? I don't know that I will have access to Firefox at the location where I want to play the videos.

When I do this -- I can only save it as a web link. Was hoping for a separate file.

It will download the video from youtube to your pc. Unfortunately, the file type that it downloads is not compatible with windows media player. They give you the link to download a free program that will convert the original dowloaded file to wmv format (windows media player compatible).

If you used this method you could always save the videos to a jump drive and bring them to wherever you needed to play them. That way you could download them on a computer where you have access to firefox and bring them to a pc where you can't add firefox.

Just use TubeSock . It can download vids from YouTube as well as a few other similar sites. It will also convert them to MP4 or H.264 for you.
