"Adrian, which software can I use for YouTube video download?"
"...and how can I convert the YouTube video to other video formats?"
I was asked these questions yesterday by my neighbour.
My neighbour, a friendly family man, is a financial planning trainer.
He uses lots of high-tech tools and media to communicate his message.
So he came across a YouTube video that might enhance his presentation.
He wants the video downloaded so that he can play back from his laptop.
I, the internet video expert, gave him the ultimate unexpected answer.
"There is no need to download any software to download YouTube videos."
"There is also no need for any software to convert the YouTube videos."
"All you need is ZamZar.com, an online video conversion service that is free!"
Just Go to ZamZar.com and follow the 4 easy steps:
- Step #1. Enter the YouTube video URL. Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lc0ZXlIAHp4
- Step #2. Select the video format you want to convert to. Popular video formats for playback on a PC are AVI, MPG and WMV.
- Step #3. Enter your email address. Yes, you have to reveal your email address. If you are reluctant to give your email for fear of spam, then get yourself a disposable email address. http://email.about.com/od/disposableemailservices/tp/disposable.htm
- Step #4. Hit “Convert” and wait for an email message from ZamZar.com with instructions to download your converted video.
So easy. This is not new. Just a forgotten or overlooked YouTube video downloader.
Try it and tell me what you think about ZamZar.com.
