    I have a question.

    If....I save a tutorial from say youtube or wherever...to be able to watch it at another time...do I need to be connected to the internet? Or am I able to watch it without being on the internet? Or is there some way that I can watch it without the internet.

    Carrie you do that and then let me know. Because I would love to take my lap top to my sewing class and show tutorials to the ladies. So get busy young lady. I don't have all night. LOL J/k Would be cool if you can do it.

    I just tried this with RealPlayer. I didn't have to open the internet with DSL, but I don't know about other types of internet access. I don't know if it bypasses the internet or if it still has access with the DSL being hooked up all of the time.


    EDIT: I unplugged the DSL, and without internet RealPlayer will play the downloaded videos. That is good news!!!

    When I view a youtube video up towards the top of the page there is usually a little rectangle that says Download. If I click on it, it downloads into RealPlayer. If you don't have RealPlayer it will take someone who knows more than I do.

    Before anybody goes crazy downloading stuff please realize video files can use up alot of space on your hard drive. One solution is to get a flash drive ( also called a stick drive, a thumb drive or memory stick) it's the little doo hicky you save stuff on and it plugs into one of the little openings on the front of your computer or the side of your laptop. Staples has an 8 gig on sale for $10 or you can get bigger ones for a little more and save your video files on it instead of the computer itself. When you dont need the video anymore delete them so you can add more.

    There is lots of free software that allows you to download YouTube videos to your hard drive and then you can watch them anytime, with or without an Internet connection. I use Firefox as my browser, and they have lots of extras, like this, all for free. If you do have Firefox, check out DownloadHelper. It works for me.
