You don't need any software, the video is automatically saved into your temporary Internet folder when you watch it (just sort the folder by date so the most recent files appear at the top). Copy it from there and rename it to something sensible. All you really need is something to play or convert flash video files.

Si.

If you use internet explorer, why just not add to your favourites and put in a folder?
Because you have to re-download it every time, that uses up your usage allocation.

What is usage allocation?

The amount of traffic you have paid for from your ISP, not everyone is on an unlimited usage package (upload-download limits)

I didn't realise that! I remember years ago this being the case but I thought that was long gone.

You live and learn :)

RealPlayer is pretty good for this. Just hover your cursor over. The video and you get a button pop up asking if you want to download the video. As a teacher, this is the most important tool in my cabinet!

Skipity plugin for firefox lets you save any video on the page. Works on most sites, and you dont have to open something new... You are just browsing along, and then think, "hey, i'd like to save that!", and you can.

Do you have a PC or a Mac?

If the Mac, there is a free prog called MacTubes that allows you to watch and download in various formats. Its handy because it does searches according to names and then grabs all the videos in one list.

Instal;l the FREE Realplayer. (Make sure you tick the correct boxes when you install for BASIC Realplayer.
That will download any tube video, and will play them automatically as real player files whenever you wish.
