Download Youtbue Videos

If you have RealPlayer on your laptop, when you run your cursor over the top right side of a youtube video, a little line will appear asking if you want to download the video.  However if you do not then you need an alternative.  If you do not want to download another program (only a small java file) then Saveyoutube is a great alternative.  You simply put in the youtube url and then decide what format you want and you can very quickly download the video onto your computer.

Speaking of YouTube videos, I thought you might be interested in two online video tutorials my colleagues and I created. Our undergraduates seem to have difficulty understanding the difference between primary and secondary sources, so we got a small grant for a professional group to produce our tutorials.
The topic is pirates (we created a series and hope to produce more):

Tales from the Source:
"Pyrates! Truth Be Told"


"Captain Kidd: Pirate or Privateer?"

We also created a LibGuide with information on pirates to accompany these videos:

Hope you will find these useful.
