Earlier this year I blogged about a site called vixy.net, a tool I used to download YouTube videos in various different formats to use for teaching purposes. Unfortunately, many of the same problems that plagued vixy.net still continue today: slow convert time, sluggish download speeds, often unresponsive site and the annoying logo it added to the end of all you videos. It really hasn’t improved at all.
Since then I’ve since found another site that does the same thing, but with less problems: vconvert.net. Not only does vconvert.net have more video formats to choose from, it also downloads your YouTube video selection much quicker and does nothing to add a pesky logo to your clip.
There’s so many great video clips on YouTube that serve as great teaching aids and vconvert.net helps me save those clips to my computer in a format I can use for embedding into slideshow presentations and even burning to DVD.
