Hi, Does anybody know of a good software program that will allow me to download videos like from Utube, news videos, etc. that I can put in my computer which has Windows Vista. I have tried Real Player but it only works for a short time and then stops working. I want something different than this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

One of the better one's out there is download helper.

It is a Firefox add on but it will download just about any video from any site.

There is a small learning curve but you'll pick it up in no time.

If you want to save youtube videos to watch off line keepvid works very well for that. Mary

This is a site that will download and convert it for you. Once it's done just save it to your computer.
