Stoopid question! If I know of a YouTube clip that I would like to capture and store on my video iPod, can I do that? I have the URL and can go to the YouTube page and see it there. But how would you capture it? Download something to capture it with?
There’s a video of “How High the Moon” with Mel Torme on drums and Nat King Cole on piano that I would LOVE to have on my iPod. I would just sit around and show that to people.
Also, there’s a Jerry Lewis/Buddy Rich drums “contest” that goes back and forth.
Anyway, I don’t have any video on that iPod yet. Need to figure that one out.
[EDIT: NONE of the sites I Googled up had tools that still worked; the YouTube site nerds had fixed all the holes. Howsomever, it’s not streaming video–it gets cached on your hard drive. I ended up just browsing my temporary Internet files directory for large files and found the last few videos I had played. That was easier than all the stuff the “secrets of YouTube” websites suggested. Anyhow . . . I saved off the clips I mentioned plus a few performances by amateur pianists I know who are local to me and who play over at Fry’s, where I auditioned. Those guys are GOOD. The video quality isn’t always, but hey, it’s a tiny screen.]
What am I doing up at 2:30 AM? Well . . . we were watching an old George Carlin concert/appearance from 1978, and it just ended. My mother (believe it or not) laughed until she just about threw up. I mean . . . sure, he saved the really “filthy” parts for last, but this was before he got so angry and bitter the way he is now, the “real” George on whom most of my Class Clown-mates modeled themselves in the Olden Days. You should catch the show if you can. I think it was on one of the HBO channels.
[EDIT: I TiVoed this “concert” when they re-ran it at 5 AM so hubby could watch it tonight. Even with a stomachache, he ought to laugh.]
