Teachers are always looking for easy ways to download YouTube videos to their computer to either incorporate into other videos or to simply have in case the internet is acting up in the building on the day they’ve planned on showing the clip.
Unless you have the right tools, this is a difficult task and one that usually leads the teacher to give up and depend on the network to deliver your YouTube videos.
Well, if you’re using a Mac you will now be able to download YouTube videos quickly and easily simply by dragging the URL to a simple software interface.
Check out the free software by Enolsoft called YouTube Downloader HD and scoop up the very best videos from the web. It allows quick drag and drop downloading and will end up giving you a FLV file that can be easily played (without conversion) using the VLC player (which everyone should have anyway).
Here are a couple reasons you would want to download videos:
- Unreliable Wi-Fi access
- Save to harddrive in case the video gets removed or taken down
- Watch consistent video without waiting on video to load or buffer.
- Splice videos together to create a compiled resource
