Downloading Youtube Videos
Edited by Earl
When I find interesting videos that I want to share with my wife or children, I download the videos to a thumb drive. Later, I take the thumb drive to a notebook computer and
we can watch the videos offline. We can be in the kitchen eating a meal or enjoying snacks while watching the videos on the notebook. And we can connect the notebook to our HDTV in the living room and watch the videos while resting on the sofa. The videos may
be watched without any internet connection, once the videos are saved to the thumb drive.
To download the videos, one method I use is the Firefox browser
and the add-on: Download
I think the extra information below is now outdated, but kept here for reference....
Sometimes Download Helper presented multiple files to choose from for
the same video. Which file is the best quality?
||Very-high quality MP4 1280x720 (16:9
ratio) recorded at 2000 kbps
||High quality FLV
854x480 (16:9 ratio) recorded at 900 kbps
||Medium quality MP4 480x360 (4:3
ratio) recorded at 512 kbps
