Hi All

Is there a way to play a YouTube video, and have that cashe into memory so that I can take my laptop, move to a location that does not have wireless network connectivity, and play it again?

I'm teaching a Boy Scout Merit Badge class in the basement of a church with poor connectivity, and would like to show Mateusz X's Vision video.  

I've contacted the author about a downloadable copy, but no response yet.

Thanks in advance.
Jim

Yes. Do a google for several youtube downloaders or add ons that work with your particular browser.

I use the Firefox browser with the free "Video Download Helper"

In Firefox, click on Tools then Add-ons then search for Video Download Helper
It works really well for me.

I downloaded and installed http://www.ytddownloader.com/, then attempted to dowload http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOy0YgUDwDg, and am stuck on a status of 'Paused, waiting for internet connection'.  I followed the FAQ to go into IE .. Tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab, Restore Advanced Settings, no luck yet.

>I use the Firefox browser with the free "Video Download Helper"
Currently running IE 11 and Google Chrome 32.0.1700.107 m, not Firefox, but I may have to try that.
