CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
Hey, you play guud!
Is there a way to download videos from youtube?
If not, would you mind sharing a copy of that Crowley 2-Step? Been wanting to learn that one, but couldn't find a starting point.
It's possible to download the files.
I do it with Mozzilla Firefox and a plug-in called
Video-downloader on a PC.
You can find both on the internet.
You get them like FLV files, so you need a FLV player to look at the movies or a converter to put them in another format like MPG or WMV.
I can forward it to you, it's in an MP4 format. Do you want the slow or the fast version ?
If I can only get one, give me the slow.
I was thinking I could create my own slow one, but I'm not sure if anything I've got will handle MP4.

I'm thinking that it might be a good tool if I included links to such files from my cajun-accordion-licks yahoo group. That way people would have an option to tablature.
Are you ok with letting me include links to your files?
Any video I get, I want to be able to feed it through some software that I wrote, so I eventually need it in AVI, or MPx.
I see a video downloader plug-in, but its from SlovakSoft, which makes me a bit suspicious. Is this the one you use, and have your bank accounts been emptied?
That keepit.com link works the same way. There's a few web sites out there that work the same way - free. They all download the file to your desktop, and some you will have to add .flv as an extension.
I'm a Mac guy, so I don't know the names for the PC version flash to MP4 converters, but they are out there as well. I'm surer someone can direct you to a couple links.
Any MAC compatible programmes out there? I have audio hijack..but no vid possibilities.
The best free flash player for Mac I've found, is Whimpy Flash Player, available at:
Basic, no bells or whistles, but doesn't crash like others I've tried.
To convert flash (.flv) to mp4. I use isquint, available for free at:
It's mainly for converting video for ipod, but there are settings that let you save the vid in a larger screen format. So far, I've found no clitches.
Dwight, I tried sending a video to you last night but the wife's computer pooped on me. I'll have to send it from my work computer when I get back into town next week !!
Thanks Steve for the heads-up on MAC friendly vid downloading.. I have yet to get it all working..but hope to soon..
