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?
If you don't have the firefox plugin, here's a web page that downloads the vids for you. Still need a flash player to view them, but there are many free ones available.
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?
I use the above link to download Youtube videos. Just paste the Youtube URL into the form and you get a download link to download a Flash video. ( .flv)
You need a Flash video player though. There are several freeware players available.
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.
Here's my link above (#1). I have posted several songs, some of which are in slow motion.
Let me know what you think. Have you seen Big Nick's site too (link #2)?
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 !!
Here is a link to accordion lessons on youtube, you can pick through Dwight.
