Talk about a great online service!  A teacher suggested Zamzar.com as an online service that converts pretty much any file on the web.  Especially works great with YouTube videos!  Here’s how:

1)  Visit Zamzar.com

2) Under Step 1 click on URL.

4) Copy the URL (web address) of the YouTube video you wish to convert.

6) In Step 2 you will need to select what type of file you want to convert to:
  1. For Quicktime Player select mp4, mov or mpg (Mac)
  2. For Windows Media Player select wmv (PC)

7) Enter your email address in Step 3 and click Convert.

You’re done.  You’ll receive an email address a few hours later with a link to download your converted file.  All you’ll have to do is click on Download Now and save it.

Download & Save

Enjoy it’s FREE!  No more waiting for the video to load on the internet.

Update: Check your Junk Mail for the email you’ll receive with a link to your file.  Approve that sender if you’ll be converting several videos.

Thank you Mr. Labardee!
