Hi, my name's Dave Andrews. Today, I'm going to show you how to download and save YouTube or Google videos to your PC. Let's go to our computer. And I have a program installed here -- it's actually an evaluation version -- called liteCam 2. Just find it in your Start menu. It's going to be under the Innoheim, I-N-N-O-H-E-I-M, and click liteCam. Now, I'm using the evaluation version. It's only good for 30 days. It's a free download. Just open up that program, and now let's open up our YouTube video. Just click your Start button, go to Internet Explorer, and let's find a YouTube video that we would like to record. I'm just going to click on the first one here. I'm going to go ahead and pause it. Let's go back to our liteCam program, and then we'll select to record to fullscreen, and then I'm going to click Record. Now, it tells me, depending on the system that I'm running, the movie may not be recorded properly if the recording area is too big. I'm just going to click yes. And I'm going to click yes again. It's going to ask me where I want to save the video. I'm going to choose to just overwrite this MyVideo, but you want to give your video a name and hit Save. Now, you probably want to choose the MPEG-4 video codec, and you want to click the check box to record the audio. You can also modify how many frames you want to take per second. I think 30 or so would probably fool the eye into thinking that it's regular video, but depending on your system, you might only be able to do 10 or anywhere less than 30. I'm just going to stick with the default 10. I'm going to click okay. Now, when I click okay now, it's actually going to start recording. Just click play on the YouTube video, and since this is the evaluation version, it has that little watermark there in the middle of the screen. I'm going to pause and click stop down here in the bottom right. Now, I've opened up the folder where I saved my video, and I'm just going to preview it by running MyVideo. Here's the video that I just recorded off of YouTube. There are other programs, such as YouTube Downloader, which is a free program you can download to download from YouTube, and it works great as well. My name's Dave Andrews, and I've just showed you how to download videos from YouTube and Google Video and save them on your computer.
