How-To Tech Tip: Download Videos from the Net

New post from Lawson Labs:

“There are some great videos on Internet sites for the classroom such as YouTube, but how do you download these files to your computer? This is a handy tip to download videos locally to your computer, so that you do not have to rely on speedy Internet connections or receive annoying advertisements or inappropriate suggested content on the sidebar.”

You may also want to add KeepVid.com to your toolbox for downloading local copies of YouTube videos. Give KeepVid the Share link from a YouTube video, and KeepVid will give you two versions of the video to download:

  1. mp4: high quality format
  2. .flv: low quality format

Note that .flv or Flash is the format of choice if you want to embed the video in a SMART Notebook page.
