Downloading videos from Youtube etc.

Video Download Tools

I thought this might prove useful.
I have been throught the use of Mozilla Firefox as a browser and using the Download Helper add-on, and it is good but as they have improved the service that add-on provides, it has got more compliacted and doesn’t always do what I want it to do!

I have found this link though and it is great!

It is to Downloadtoolz.com
It gives download programs for Youtube, Teachertube and other video hosting sites. (I must tell you though it gives them for other more ‘unsavoury’ videos sites too)
But the Youtube, and Teachertube ones are excellent, and gives you an flv file (flash video file) that you can then insert into a SMART file to watch as part of a lesson – just what I want and it is FREE too!

Hope it is useful to you too!
