    i cant for the life of me save a youtube video to my desk top or lap top computer.

    i click in the video itself and see the "copy URL" but cant paste it anywhere when i right click in a new forlder or anything.

    anybody know how to do this?
    i need to copy a youtube video to a thumb drive so i can take it into a classroom for presentation where there is no wifi.

    thanks.

    I use a program called "you tube downloader". Works great and have used it for many, many files.

    It is a free program so just google it.

    I use Firefox as a browser and can only speak from that perspective. There are10 or so video down loaders that work with Youtube available as add-ons. Go to TOOLS - Add Ons - and type in 'downloader' in the search box and pick one that looks good. One click will DL the video, usually in mp-4 format. You can use a free program like Format Factory to convert it to your format of choice.

    + 1 for Firefox and its d/l tools. Works great!

    It works for many other sites, too.
