There is an alternative. You can download the YouTube video directly to your computer. There are several programs (most, if not all, are free) that can help you do this. Here’s a Google search for “download flash video”: – take your pick. If you use Firefox as your web browser, there is a simple add-on you can install.

If the video is hosted by YouTube, you don’t even have to download any kind of program. Just go to this site, plug in the URL for the YouTube video, and on the next screen you’ll have an opportunity to download the file.

Once you’ve downloaded it, you need to download and install FLV Player, which is a media player designed specifically to play Flash videos (which is what YouTube, etc. videos are).

Hope that helps!
