I am wondering, does anyone know if you can save videos that you find on youtube to your computer? I REALLY want to put a copy of video of that old Staples "Back to School" commercial (It's the most wonderful time of the year) on the blog I have for my Girl Scout troop as a nice little joke for them before school starts, but I can't embed videos to blogger, I have to upload them.

It is a private, password proected site, so no one would see it but the 10 girls in my troop. Does anyone know how/if I can do that?

Thanks

If you send me the link to the video, I can probably do it for you.

Wow! We've been in school for two weeks! I hope you and everyone else had a great summer. I'm a teacher so summer is the most wonderful time of the year for me!!! I have to admit though, that commercial cracks me up too!

But, I'm always jealous of those that get out in May and early June, we got out 6/26 this year...

There are lots of programs out there, like Mac The Ripper or Cinematize (for a Mac), where you can convert a DVD to Quicktime or another compatible program to upload to You Tube. When things are burned to a DVD, they are compressed, so you have to find a program to un-compress them and change the data to a compatible format for You Tube. It's not difficult, though.
