Hi, is it possible to save a video to our hard drive so we can later open it in Win Media Player?
Some vids need you to go to their website and stay there in order to open them, which is a bit of a hassle because they only play once and you have to keep hitting 'replay' to play again.
So if they can be put in WMP we can use the 'continuos loop' play option, and also use the settings options to brighten/ darken them etc.

Flash Video Resources is the best downloader I've used. Just go to this link. It's very simple.

It's very simple. Copy the web address of the Youtube video. Paste it into the space provided. Hit the button and then save it. Voila! It's on your hard drive. The instructions are right on the website.

If you want a tool to download from many many sites take a look at DownloadHelper http://www.downloadhelper.net/ Firefox only. Max. convenience from looking at video online to ready for Media player will require both downloading and conversion. so dig in to that extension and site. I hope they dont charge for conversion? Dont really remember, well you find out.

There are other tools, dozens. Once on hd you can use FormatFactory http://www.formatoz.com/ looks a bit shady but untick anything about toolbars during installation. Deadeasy to use, opposite most others. Not liking chinese software then use WinFF http://winff.org/html_new/ pure as snow.

There are even online conversions sites like http://www.zamzar.com/url/ or http://www.youconvertit.com/OnlineVideo.aspx Google for more.

Note that it might not always be legal to do. Why some sites make it hard. If Downloadhelper dont work assume you are not supposed to tinker. What you call "hassle" could be the "law" :thumbsup:

I can vouch for the free Downloadhelper, add on for Firefox. That's what I use on my Mac. You should get the option to DL either .flv or .mp4 video. I try to stay away from .flv video if I plan on editing. I download .mp4 instead. It's easier to work with.

I use VLC media player to watch either .flv or mp4. You can pause, rewind, play again, etc. It's great for the video guitar lessons on you tube. If you email the author and get their permission, then I would think that it's legal, since you got written permission. But I'm no lawyer.

Don't know about the best DVD burner. But, I think
You need a program burn multiple video files to DVD.

DVD Flick should do the job.

Hope this helps.
