Hi there,

I �m using a programme called [ JDownloader ].... It �s really great. It enables you to download from youtube and convert it at the same time.

Once you downloaded and istalled it, follow these steps:

01. Run the programme.
02. Copy the URL of the video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeyOA0mwBhc
03. Click on the [ Linkgrapper ] tab.
04. Wait for the programme to check the online status of your link.
05. You will get many formats: mp4, flv and mp3(sound only). so choose the one you like and delete the others.
05. Click Continue with button or the blue arrow.

Here is a picture..

There are millions of  free YouTube converters on the net. I download them and convert them to AVI and save them on my USB pen.

Try to google Youtube converters.

You can also go to keepvid download, and copy your youtube link and paste it on keepvid. Then, clic "Download". I use this method and it �s very easy! I don �t have an internet connection in my class either, so I download my videos at home.

Good luck!
