Learning new WW techniques builds skill, right?
There is a series of wood working video tutorials I’d like to have permanently on my computer. The site owner allows it, so it’s OK.
They can be watched on the site but, I don’t know how to download them to a disk or to my HD.
Can anyone help this non savvy old man?
Thanks.

I can’t be sure without seeing the site and trying a few things.
Have you tried right clicking to see if you can “save as” to your computer?

Man, I’m such a klutz! I downloaded the same video 3 times before I caught on to where it was showing the download progress. It was down loading the 3rd copy while I was asking for help! What’s an emoticon for “Stupid”?

Actually, you don’t need to restrict your Video Downloads to that site. You can “Grab” UTube Videos and a LOT of others if you have the “Necessary Software” to do it with. There’s a quite a few of them out there, and most of them are FREE. I have 2 of them on my Computer. I only use them If I want Fast and Easy acces to them, or they might be Gone in a short while from the Site.

Personally…I “save” the Location of most of them them by using “Favorites”, (Uper Left Corner) clicking on that and saving the “Location” (the one you want, when you are there. IT automatically records the URL Address) in “My Favorites”.

Mine are all categorized i.e. “Woodwork”, “Music”, “Fishing”, etc. Then any time you want to see it, Open “My Favorites” go to the one you want, click on it, and it SHOULD take you right to the one you’ve chosen. Also saves a pile of space on your Hard Drive and no need to use CD’s.

A lot of them are “Flash Player” and “Save As” won’t even show up if you “Click” on the Video.

If you, or any else wants a FREE Downloader you could Go Here

Speaking of Neat Little Software Programs…LOL…
