    Downloading From YouTube?

    Hello

    Just wondering if anybody knows if it is possible to download YouTube videos and if so how?

    I have tried using Real Player but had problems with the playback plus a lot of software from a Google search just doesn't look legit

    Any advice would be welcome

    Thank you in advance

    There's ways if you want to breach the User Agreement.

    That's a very poor justification for breaking their T&Cs imho. It's the "they were just asking for it" argument rewritten for piracy.

    Assuming we're talking about educational use, we simply tell people "No. It's against the T&Cs".

    I doubt Edugeek is happy to educate people in ways to circumvent T&C's . You would not want pupils flouting an AUP would you.

    Agreed. If we ignore the T&C's, do we ignore software licensing rules? Laws? Where do you draw the line? Here, I state firmly that downloading youtube is a breach of conditions and we will not assist anyone to do so.

    The rules here are simple. Downloading content from YouTube is a breach of their T&C's and we at EduGeek do not promote such activity.
    I have removed all of the posts linking or advising products which would breach YouTube's T&C's and would advise members that they should not be promoting such activity on here.
    I have locked the thread.
