Hi I have been told by a friend that I should s/l IE 7 Pro which is an upgrade? Is this Beta? As I am not techie oriented I don't use an app unless I know for certain that it is suitable and has been tested before I do an install on my notebook which I use for personal and work use. It is my notebook.

I want to d/l from the "youtube site" a couple of videos and was told that once this upgrade to Pro was done then I would have a "Download" option and a "Save window" also opens and after the Clip is in my folder I rename it with the .flv and view the view with FLV-Player from this site:
Visit My Website
The saved Clips from Youtube, I want to be able to burn onto single dvd's that will be viewable on a BenQ PB6110 Multi Media projector.
I have been told that I hook up my notebook via USB 2 and a wireless 'mic' is provided and to use my powered notebook speakers and that this hookup will work.
The multi media projector is 500 miles away from me and the Community Centre does not seem to fully understand its operation. I am going to call BenQ in California and get their opion re VGA hook ups.
I would appreciate any help on my query re IE7 Pro and whether it can indeed d/l Clips from Youtube.
Thank you for your time.

IE7 Pro isn't a beta or anything...it's just an addon to IE7...and a pretty good addon at that...i'm using it right now, sometimes the download manager bugs me but not much

as for downloading from youtube...i don't know that IE7 Pro can do that (i don't know that it can't either)....be warned that A LOT of youtube content is copywritten and shouldn't be downloaded

I did not know that the clips were copywritten. How does one know as I don't want to do something that is not accepted practice :) .
I was simply told that if I downloaded the IE7 Pro that there was a Green Button that would appear on the 'youtube' clip and you clicked on it and it did the d/l and after you renamed it 'xxxx.flv' and saved it as an example in your videos?
Apologies for my ignorance on this matter. Have you ever seen this green d/l button on the 'youtube' clip, as I had it described to me?
Thank you for your time.

i'm rarely at youtube so i can't say for sure if the button is there...but it is part of IE7 Pro (the ability to download media in that way)....

as a general rule of thumb....if a website want's their content freely downloadable and distributable...they'll put a download link....since youtube DOESN"T have a download link...you can assume that it's not their intended purpose.... their Terms of use actually explicitly state that:

[quote name='http://youtube.com/t/terms']A. You agree not to distribute in any medium any part of the Website, including but not limited to User Submissions (defined below), without YouTube's prior written authorization.

...

C. You agree not to access User Submissions (defined below) or YouTube Content through any technology or means other than the video playback pages of the Website itself, the YouTube Embeddable Player, or other explicitly authorized means YouTube may designate

...
Section 5

B. You may access User Submissions solely:

for your information and personal use;
as intended through the normal functionality of the YouTube Service; and
for Streaming.
"Streaming" means a contemporaneous digital transmission of an audiovisual work via the Internet from the YouTube Service to a user's device in such a manner that the data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be copied, stored, permanently downloaded, or redistributed by the user. Accessing User Videos for any purpose or in any manner other than Streaming is expressly prohibited. User Videos are made available "as is."

...

F. You agree not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the YouTube Website or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any Content or enforce limitations on use of the YouTube Website or the Content therein.[/quote]
so basically the youtube terms of use expressly forbid the saving of any content from their site in any way shape or form other than the embedded youtube player

So what you are saying is that all the people that have youtube on their pc's are not doing it in an acceptable manner then?
It sounds pretty clear to me.
It seems odd as I see that the youtube clips can be uploaded but not downloaded. Just find that a little odd.
Thank you again for your time.
