If you are planning to present a YouTube video as part of a prepared lesson you want it to run immediately when you click the Play button.
If your school’s Internet connection is slow or overloaded you may not be able to watch the video ‘live’. The solution to this problem is to download the video to your computer before the lesson, so that you know the video will run when you click Play.
There are a number of Firefox add-ons that will provide a Download option when you view a YouTube video.
Easy YouTube Downloader Express is one of these add-ons, and provides a number of saving formats, including HD.
As shown in the image above, this Firefox extension adds a download button under each YouTube video – you can download the video to your computer, so that you can run a ‘local’ version of the video, without being caught out by the vagaries of your school’s Internet connection.
Launch Firefox, then go to the download page >>>
