Hello everyone. So I understand that some of you are learners who would like to download these lessons to your ipod or you’re teachers who would like to download them to show them in your classes.
On this post, I’ll give you an idea on how to go about doing that.
Disclaimer: Please understand that I give you permission to download my videos provided you are not financially profiting off of them. Downloading other videos from Youtube could get you in trouble legally. So please use the program with caution.
Step 1:Download Youtube Downloader
So I really like Youtube Downloader. It’s spyware and malware free and you can download it off of CNET. You can also search on Google “Download Youtube Videos” but who knows what you’ll come up with.
(When installing, I always make sure to unclick on everything it tells me to install because those programs are not needed for the program to work. )
Step 2: Find Youtube Video
So with the Youtube Downloader program open, find a youtube video that you want to download.

Step 3: Copy video address into Youtube Downloader
Go to the video you want. Then look at the top to the url of the video and simply copy all of the text and paste it into the Youtube downloader program. You might notice that once you copy it, it will automatically paste the url into the program for you.
Step 4: Download video
Make sure you check how good the quality is if you want the best available or lower. Then click on the download button.
Step 5: Save video to somewhere you can find it
It should type the title of the video automatically into your file-save window. Then just save it.
Step 6: Your movie file
Once downloaded, your movie file will be able to be dragged onto your Ipod.
If you’re a teacher wanting to show it in your school, you can now transfer the file to a USB drive and take it to school.
- Option 1: Show in Quicktime
The file is in MPEG-4 format. The program that can usually open that without any problems is Quicktime. So you will need Quicktime installed on your computer at school.
- Option 2: Convert files
You could also convert the file to a different file type that your computer at school could play. I would try either WMV or AVI.
- Option3: Download VideoLan
There is a really good program that can show all sorts of file types without any problem that is FREE! It’s called VideoLan. You could download the install file and put it on your USB drive and take it to school or have your tech guy install it on your computer for you.
Hope this was helpful! Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions!
