    i've found a video on youtube which would be perfect for a presentation i'm doing at school to help me in making my point.
    the only problem is, youtube is blocked at school so i won't be able to show it.
    anyone got any ideas of how i can get the video onto my computer? or even any other suggestions?
    thanks for any replies

    edit: i need the video to play in windows media player NOT quicktime.

    One way to do it, and the simplest I've found is to download greasemonkey (if you have firefox) and then search greasemonkey youtube to MP4, follow the instructions for installing the script (just a bit of code) and this adds a button to youtube allowing you to download the film as an MP4 which then plays in a number of programs including quicktime. I find it really easy to use and greasemonkey has some other great scripts!

    You can choose which format you want. So yes

    The site doesn't seem to be working at the moment though.

    instead of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPI_Q2w56vw
    do http://www.youtubemp4.com/watch?v=WPI_Q2w56vw
    It is useful as it downloads it in the correct format for your ipod and you do not need to have any software.
