    Is this possible?

    I downloaded a plugin for firefox that downloads the videos in flash video format, but Power Point doesn't like that.

    I need this for a project for school, and I've actually never made a Power Point presentation before.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Heeeeelp? :x:

    you don't need an extension, Safari does it for you...
    Open Safari
    Go to youtube link
    Open up "activity" (Window > Activity)
    look for the big file that's downloading, copy and paste that link to your download window

    to convert
    download iSquint and turn the downloaded file into an h264 or a regular .mp4 file. should be able to use that in powerpoint, if not, just convert it into windows with flip4mac.

    I bought a key for FLVR, automatically downloads and converts them. Saves me a lot of effort and was only 10 dorra.
