How to Download Videos from YouTube

There are add ons for all the popular web browsers which allow you to download YouTube videos to your computer.

For PC users, the newest Real Player has been recommended by one of our customers, if you have trouble getting the Firefox plugin to work.

More about the Plugin For Firefox on Mac or PC:
If you want to download it to your computer, use the link below to download and install a little plugin for the Firefox browsers on either Mac or PC.

Firefox is free (google “firefox download”). Load Firefox then try the link above. Download and then install the plug in. If it doesn’t work search Google for “Download youtube videos as mp4 and flv” to find the plugin. One other limitation of it working right came to my attention recently. If the video does not display well, you could need to install Flash 10 Player. This updated version of Flash seems to be needed for the Plugin to work right, too. Note that it’s all easier if Firefox is your default browser so the email links we send to you load Firefox directly (instead of Internet Explorer, etc.)

After you install the plugin, and if you have the latest Flash player, a “download” button should show up just below the YouTube video screen. There may be up/down arrows to “expand” the region to see the download button. It should show up right beside the “embed” and “share” buttons. Select the highest quality (HD720) and save it to your computer.

How to Watch YouTube Videos in Slow Motion

This is so important for agility competitors to have! Below is a link that allows you to watch YouTube videos in various speeds, (2x fast, 1x fast, normal, 1/2 speed and 1/4 speed). Wow, does it make it easier to see your (and your dog's) errors on course..".I thought that Q was pretty "smooth"...well on the second thought...."

I wasn't able to get it to work in my Mac in Firefox but I downloaded Google's Chrome browser (available for both Mac and PCs), which is very fast and works great for this feature! I like the add on so much that I made Chrome my default and imported all my settings from Firefox and Safari. The "download YouTube videos as MP4 and FLV" extension appears to be available for Chrome but I have yet to get that to I'll keep Firefox for that.

It appears that all the videos we've uploaded are compatible with this new HTML5 slow motion feature...Here's the link! Hope you can get it working too! Remember that you have to "Join the trial" on every browser and every computer that you use. I "joined" from Firefox then had to do it again with Chrome. And also every time one of the programs updates itself I have to rejoin the trial. It's amazing what you can see in slow motion. I watch a run of Gamma's recently where she knocked a bar as she was could see the tick of her back toe nail that jiggled the bar, and after she landed, the bar finally fell.
