I use Keepvid and then go to and from there you can convert them to any number of file types including .mov (ipod compatible) files.

Thanks for this Mike. Worth checking out.


I've started to use iTube - this allows to copy and paste the URL from YouTube and then converts it to either an mp4 file or an iPod ready file.

Interesting ... Are you using iPods to show the videos in class or letting the pupils access the files at home Lynne?

I like the flv player as it associates any flv file on your computer so you can just open it by double clicking on it in the normal way. But then I'm not looking at using YouTube videos on an iPod (at the moment anyway)

At the moment we don't have iPods which will show video. As YouTube is blocked in school this allowed me to download the clips at home so I can show them in class. Seems to work quite well and little loss of sound quality or picture.

This certainly makes sense. It also means you have complete control over what your pupils see.

That's also how I use it. Youtube has been blocked in my district, although for some reason, right now it's not, but I wouldn't dare send my students to youtube on their own while in school, so this does give me control over what I show them. Thanks for the information on itube. I'll look into that. It could save time over zamzar because the method I currently use requires downloading the flash video and then reuploading it and then redownloading it again as a .mov file. I'm all for saving time when possible.

Thanks again for sharing your ideas Lynne and Mike. Very useful.
